I have no idea why **** was there, I've edited it again and added the word 'b e a u t y' back in but it's blocked.

Homebridge is a method for adding Homekit support to devices that don't have homekit support themselves.

Installation is pretty simple. It runs on all OS, or as a docker container. I run it on a Pi, there is a pre-made image you can pull all at https://homebridge.io

There are a few Comfort plugins, but they haven't seen much love. There's definitely scope her for Cytech to submit a good quality plugin.

I use the very excellent CBUS plugin, which in turn exposes everything on Comfort via the CBUS UCM, it works great. This is the plugin I'm using for that https://github.com/anthonywebb/homebridge-cbus

Here is the Comfort plugin but it's limited but does work. https://github.com/talandis/homebridge-comfort#readme

How long would it take? If you have a spare Pi, from start to finish you'd have a Homebridge install talking to Comfort in about 10 minutes. It couldn't be simpler.

There is an Alexa plugin available, so this would expose Comfort to Alexa that way.
