homebridge-indigo wish list

The homebridge-indigo plugin is great. I am enjoying operating Indigo functions via Siri. My whole family is getting more use out of our home automation because of this plugin. I have a wish to make it more useful to me.

If the plugin could accept Phidgets Plugin devices, at least the digital inputs it would be great. Here is a sample of the homebridge log.

[11/19/2016, 9:08:06 AM] [Providence] Discovered InterfaceKit Digital Input (ID 1535486294): Garage Door Person Status

Of course all the Phidgets sensors would be great but I thought a digital input as a switch would be a start.

Thanks again for the great plugin.

Re: homebridge-indigo wish list

You could create a virtual device in indigo and map your sensors to being either on or off.. this would allow you to read their states in homebridge. Add a couple of action groups to it if you need to turn it on or off and behold a fully working HomeKit device (that's how my garage door works)
