Running Homebridge natively on Synology NAS
3 projects | reddit.com/r/homebridge | 7 May 2022
The Homebridge Synology Package was recently updated to allow running Homebridge natively on Synology DSM 7, without the need for Docker. This means more NAS models are supported, including the entry level ARM cpu based units.3 projects | reddit.com/r/homebridge | 7 May 2022
Homebridge using Onzu Synology package - upgrading to DSM 7. .
2 projects | reddit.com/r/homebridge | 4 Apr 2022
For those using the pre-configured package for Synology: https://github.com/oznu/homebridge-syno-spk When you upgrade to DSM 7.0 you will acquire an error it is no longer compatible. Note the docker container will still be running and I think you will still be able to use. I however wanted to switch to docker directly and can confirm if will work and migrate without issue (that I have seen). 1. Note the folder you store you config to, i.e. docker/homebridge and take a copy 2. Uninstall the Homebridge App (at this point you will lose the docker image). 3. Follow the steps here: https://github.com/oznu/docker-homebridge/wiki/Homebridge-on-Synology#homebridge-package-for-synology-dsm ensuring you use the SAME config directory noted in step 1. I have tested this and it looks to pickup where it left off. Just though I would share for anyone who had / has the same issue.2 projects | reddit.com/r/homebridge | 4 Apr 2022

Well, I though I had setup ffmpeg using the procedure described on this docker github, but it doesn't seem to work. I've followed these steps to the letter. Will have to see if there is a help forum for this one

This is the way. You can also use HomeBridge if you don't want the full blown HomeAssistant platform (but I would recommend you do use HA) https://github.com/homebridge/homebridge

Show HN: I record myself on audio 24x7 and use an AI to process the information

It's incredibly easy to do (caveat - at least if you're familiar with software dev already).
Most thermostats are literally just digital thermometers that control a relay that turns the furnace/ac on and off.
A simple arduino (or much cheaper IC) can easily do the same thing if you wire it in.
And then on the software side... there's several large, open-source projects that exist in this space and provide nice api tooling for interacting with those devices. Things like:
It's not only true - I strongly suspect you can do it for much less than 50 bucks if you don't need the physical thermostat to have buttons/screens.
Is it possible to install HomeBridge OS on an old Windows PC? I know it’s possible on a RPI device but wondering about PC. Or help with ffmpeg pre-compiled with audio support (libfdk-aac) support for PC

Now for the fun part. Well, there's already good instructions here and now that you are ssh-ed into the pi, you just have to run those commands and follow the instructions. Finally, open your browser and paste in the URL in the format shown in the wiki. It should open HomeBridge's Web UI.2 projects | dev.to | 9 Nov 2022
Use HomeBridge and install it on my Raspberry Pi Zero W and that acts as a bridge to allow my devices to be seen on Apple Home App, which currently is configured to shout "Cat detected" through Alexa using a webhook when it's camera detects a cat walking by (long story!).

Dyson plugin not working well

In any case, you should run your plugins as child bridges. Should an individual plugin cause issues, you can restart only that plug-in versus disrupting homebridge as a whole.
