A HomeBridge Plugin making the TFA-Dostmann AirCO2ntrol Mini CO2 Monitor measurment USB device availible in HomeKit.


For use on an Ubuntu/Debian style Linux:

sudo apt-get install build-essential libudev-dev
sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge-aircontrol-mini

To allow homebridge to run without beeing root or using sudo a udev Rule needs to be added.

Create /etc/udev/rules.d/23-homebridge.rules and put in the following line, where you replace homebridge with the group of the user running homebridge on your system (e.g. pi on a raspian):

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04d9", ATTR{idProduct}=="a052", GROUP="homebridge", MODE="0664"

Afterwards reload the rules with udevadm control --reload and replug the USB plug of your AirControl Mini.
