Makes BOM.gov.au data available in your Homebridge(Homekit) setup

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import homebridgeBomgovau from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/homebridge-bomgovau';



Retrieves official weather data (temperature, humidity, air pressure) from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.


Install using NPM

npm install -g homebridge-bomgovau

While that's running, you'll need to get the right URL for your chosen station...

Select your station.

Find the JSON data feed for your station's observations. This is listed at the bottom of the human-readable observations page. e.g. Latest Canberra observations in human readable format are at http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN60801/IDN60801.94926.shtml. At the bottom of this page is the JSON url: http://www.bom.gov.au/fwo/IDN60801/IDN60801.94926.json

Add configuration to Homebridge config.json

Configuration sample (uses Canberra Airport in this example)

"accessories": [
    { "accessory":"BOMgovau",
    "name":"Canberra Airport",

Restart homebridge and the temperature and humidity sensors should appear in your Home app. Air pressure is not currently in the Home app, but can be viewed through third party apps (e.g. Elgato's Eve app). Data will refresh every 30 minutes, when BOM publishes new data to the web.

Optional: Disable measurements

By default, all sensors are enabled. You can disable selected sensors by adding a 'sensors' array to the config, and specifying true/false for whether a sensor is enabled. This is useful when your BOM site does not provide certain measurements.


"accessories": [
    { "accessory":"BOMgovau",
    "name":"Canberra Airport",

Current sensors that can be listed are temperature,apparentTemp,humidity.
