I don't think that I could ever conform to Apple's view of what I should want.

voice integration

Well see, I think there is a huge opportunity if nothing else than to be able to have Siri take commands and issue them straight to homeseer. That is likely the only hope on the horizon for working voice control of homeseer.


As much as I like homeseer and have built a lot around it...I'll be honest this could cause me to switch to something else if homeseer is left behind and homekit really does start to work well.

My hope is HST or someone creates a plug-in with HS and HomeKit to expose status and control. Then *any* iOS app developed can immediately work with HS provided they fully support HomeKit.

I can see a Lite version which is just control, and a full version with status info as well as deeper integration

I was a little surprised that it wasn't http based API exposed with the get go.

Juist started looking into this.
It seems to be a HTTP API (JSON) for communicating with the device. The discovery of the service is done by Apple Bonjour.

Unfortunately as a developer you have to get through some credit check before you are given access to the protocol reference.
Cannot promise anything, but when I have more details about the protocol I will try to create a plugin.

I will create a separate post at the appropriate location when I start with this.
