homebridge-dyson-fan

A Homebridge plugin for controlling a Dyson fan. This has been tested with and works using the Dyson Pure Cool Link™ Tower, but may also work with other Dyson fans.

Example Homebridge Configuration

See also: config-sample.json

"accessories": [
  {
    "accessory": "Dyson Fan",
    "homeKitFanType": "Fan",
    "name": "Bedroom Fan",
    "model": "475",
    "host": "192.168.1.110",
    "username": "NN8-AU-XXXXXXXX",
    "password": "x"
  }
]

Setup

You will need the following values set in the homebridge config.json accessory definition to connect to your fan:

  1. Device serial number (username);
  2. Device setup Wi-Fi password (password);
  3. Device IP address on your network (host).

To ensure the IP address of your fan stays the same you can either change your router's DHCP lease duration to permanent or pin your fan's MAC address to a specific IP via your router's DHCP reservation feature. Use this IP address in the host field of the config.json file.

If the value 475 as model doesn't work for you, play around with different numbers above and below 475 until you find the right one, and then set the model field in config.json to this value.

Notes

There are currently two HomeKit fan types: Fan and Fanv2. The Fanv2 type will only work on iOS 11 and if used, the fan won't appear in the accessory list in the Home app on iOS 10. For maximum compatibility use the Fan type in the homeKitFanType config field. This is also currently the default value for this field if it's not specified.
