I own a LG OLED 65 C8 TV which just received a new firmware update that enables integration in HomeKit. So now I finally can use HomeKit to turn it on/off (e.g. for a “TV time” scene) and switch TV inputs.
But of course I want to do that with openHAB and not only with the Apple Home app.
I know there is the LG WebOS binding but unfortunately the underlying API is no longer supported and for me it’s really not working well. Most important I can’t turn the TV on using it. So I thought that maybe with the new Homekit integration there is a possiblity to leverage that.
Can openHAB somehow control Homekit items? I know (and use) the other way (openHAB exposing items to Homekit). My first thought was to create a Switch in openHAB and then use Homekit automation to synchronize that with the actual TV, but I don’t own an Apple TV or HomePod, so I can’t use automation. Is there any other way?
