Step 1: put the device in DIY mode
To do this, we need to remove the cover, tampering with a screwdriver on the side and install the jumper that comes with it.
After these simple manipulations, our device will go into DIY mode and we will have access to the API.
Step 2: Let's connect Sonoff Mini to our home network
In order to connect to the device(s) and transfer to it the parameters of our home WiFi network, you need to activate the access point (modem mode on the iphone) with these parameters on your smartphone:
WiFi SSID: sonoffDiy
WiFi password: 20170618sn
Step 3: Then you download Sonoff_Devices_DIY_Tools to transfer the home network parameters to Sonoff Mini
P. S: If Sonoff_Devices_DIY_Tools generates an error, install the software additionally.
Write down your device id, you will need it later to configure the plugin. After that, highlight the required device and click "Change SSID Passsword". Set the parameters of our home network and wait a few minutes for the device to connect to Wifi. If Sonoff Mimi is successfully connected to our home network, the LED will flash double flashes.
After that, you need to start any IP Scanner and find out the IP address of your Sonoff Mini in your home network, you will need it later to configure the plugin.
Step 4: Let's install the plugin in our homebridge
If you have a Web interface installed on your homebridge, simply go to the Plug-ins section, enter "Homebridge Sonoff Mini Api Rest" in the search box and click "Install". Now we just need to add our accessory to the configuration file:
"name": "Sonoff Mini DIY",
