I hope everyone is coping with #LockDown... My personal lockdown experience has given me much more time to experiment with the Raspberry Pi's which I have and the other "smart tech" that I have accumulated and not really integrated. 


This weekend's project was centred around HomeBridge and more specifically, getting my refurbished Dyson Pure Cool & Link to work with HomeKit.  An article from MacStories started me down the project rathole but I eventually diverted to another HomeBridge plug-in which frankly made the set-up an absolute dream.


I now have full HomeKit integration with my new Dyson Pure Cool & Link fan.



Having done this, I also now I have my Nest Alarm integrated but I still haven't managed to get the TP-Link smart plugs to work...


What have you been up to in #LockDown?

I am also trying to use homebridge to integrate Dyson Pure Cool with HomeKit but to no avail. Is it possible to show me your configuration file? My config is below.
