Could this work with Harmony?

Wondering whether this plugin could also be made to work as a "Harmony-Hue" bridge, enabling Harmony home automation buttons to trigger Indigo Actions in a similar manner to how it allows Alexa to trigger Indigo actions. Apparently there isn't currently a way for the existing Indigo Harmony Plugin to detect these button presses as the Harmony Hub doesn't publish/broadcast them.

I did a quick test, and the Harmony Hub does seem to detect the emulated Hue Bridge, but then it wants me to press the button on the Hue Bridge and I haven't found any way to emulate that.

What do you think?

Use the LIFX bridge for what you want. It lets you set up Indigo devices as Pseudo-LIFX devices, which the Harmony Hub will control.

+1 - this is a critical part of my harmony hub usage - I can control lights and the ceiling fans in two rooms from a harmony companion remote with a harmony hub in each.
