This update is by far the biggest update for homebridge-fritz-platform. To make adding new devices also easier for developers, the complete plugin has been rewritten and made modular. This should give all developers the possibility to read the code more easily and add new devices via PR themselves.

  • Smarthome:
    • Added active key to smarthome to enable/disable the device without removing it from config. Warning: Default value for active is false, this means, that if you DON'T adjust your config.json and add "active": true to the device, the device will be removed from HomeKit!
  • WOL:

  • Network Monitoring:
    • Added active key to network to enable/disable the device without removing it from config. Warning: Default value for active is false, this means, that if you DON'T adjust your config.json and add "active": true to the device, the plugin will not notify you if the device is online/offline!
