Homebridge Mi Kettle

A homebridge plugin that exposes your Xiaomi Smart Kettle to HomeKit.


This plugin exposes the Xiaomi Smart Kettle as a switch device, with the switch power state representing the Kettle boile state. The current temperature is exposed through a linked Temperature Sensor.


Note: This plugin is dependent on the amazing [Cybele project]:https://github.com/Hypfer/Cybele by [Hypfer]:https://github.com/Hypfer.

Please follow the instructions provided by the project readme, or you can use the docker-compose setup that I am using, which can be found in the cybele-docker folder.


Configuration can be done using Homebridge Config UI X.
