HomeKit Integration Video Tutorial (Unofficial Integration Using Homebridge)

There is a current active discussion thread for this integration. I’m sure people there would be interested in the video.

I know you mentioned this in the video, but you didn’t in your post, so we should mention here that this entire method depends on the use of the Phillips hue bridge simulator in a way that violates the terms of service for Phillips developers.

(It is not supposed to be used for anything other than testing Phillips hue projects.)

So people may find this code on the Internet from someone who did violate those terms of service. Then install it for themselves.

This is the equivalent of receiving a stolen car as a gift. You aren’t necessarily guilty of the theft, but the legal owner might come take it away from you at any time.

Which is to say, there’s no telling how long Phillips hue is going to allow this method to work. So if you choose to base your home automation on it, be aware that it is an unauthorized method.

There is currently no official SmartThings/HomeKit integration. For discussions of why not and what might be available in the future, see the following thread:
