    That is neet and very interesting, I guess I won't have json error anymore !

    The summum would be to have a dropdown in ths config tool where one could chooses directly the HS4 device through a list soted by either floor, room or category

          Thanks Eman, I did not realize that Homebridge was a separate piece of software. I assumed it was a plugin for HS4. Thanks for the clarification. I use HomeKit a lot. I’m a big fan of Wyze, iDevices, Lutron, and Meross devices which work great with HomeKit but not so well with HS4. I’ll be installing Homebridge soon.

            I have installed Homebridge and the Homebridge HS4 plugin. Difficult install but I got it working and I am able to control 2 of my z-wave lights. It seems like I have to restart HS4 whenever I make any change to the HomeBridge config.json File. Is this really necessary? It also appears that any change to the config.json requires repairing the IOS Home app with the bridge?

              After making changes to config.json I only have to restart the homebridge server.

                The new HS4 Homebidge has a GUI so you don't have to edit the config.json file but the restarts are required for Homebridge only. The IOS devices update next time you start the app.

                  I am using the new plugin. The GUI is nice; I used it to add my first 2 devices. Then I switched to the config editor on the home page to enter additional devices.

                  I’m excited about HomeBridge with the HS4 plugin. I have many home automation devices that work with Apple HomeKit but not with HomeSeer. Now I can use a single app to control all my stuff. Lots of possibilities!!

                    Look at the Homebridge MQTT plugins as well for more possibilities

                      Glad you like the addition. Though to give credit where it is due, the Config-UI-X support was contributed by user @mwolter805 on github! I just added a note to the README to give him credit.

                        Why are there 2 “lightbulb” categories in the config.json file?

                          I have Some legacy x10 devices so I need to change the on value from 255 to 100. I used the new GUI to create the config.json file below. This crashed the plugin when I restarted it. ☹️

                            you have 203 defined twice. Remove the entry from the simple config section and just use the accessory one.

                              Thanks, that worked.

                              I have 9-10 more x10 devices. Is it possible to add an x10 category to the simple config section?
