In my previous blog you could read how I made a proper home for my Homebridge project. The goal should be to make a casing that feels and looks like a Apple product , simplifying installation and eliminating clutter. So at first I took the dimensions from the Apple TV 4 casing, As then, I can all so mount it to the wall with my previous Apple TV 4 – Wall Mount. As you can read previous blogs here, here and here you can get familiar with the Raspberry pi Zero W and how to install Homebridge on it using Wi-Fi!. The Pi Zero W, released for the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s 5th birthday, solves a networking dilemma by adding Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to the same familiar package.
So now that we have a Wireless Homebridge we need a new casing.
As you can see I added a second bottom plate with some air holes in it. You can choose if you want the wholes or not because the “old” bottom plate is all so included. I all so left a whole section unused, this way I can extend the Homebridge as I want by adding all kind of things!
