Leaf charging and climate control integration with Apple HomeKit

Wed Nov 15, 2017 9:59 am

Hi,

This might be of interest for the techie folks in the community. I recently wrote some software that exposes the Leaf's battery, charging and climate control information, and the ability to switch on charging and climate control, to Apple HomeKit. With this you can use the iOS Home app, an Apple Watch, or Siri to charge your car or turn the heat/AC on or off.

The software is written in Go and uses the HomeControl bridging software to expose the car as an accessory that can be added to HomeKit. I run both HomeControl and the Leaf integration programs on an Mac in my house that's always on.

I'm working on a more detailed blog post about it, but you can find the code and the basic setup steps on the GitHub page: https://github.com/joeshaw/carwings-homecontrol

And for more info on HomeControl itself (which I did not write), its GitHub page is https://github.com/brutella/hc
