Let’s dive in to install Homebridge for a Synology NAS DS 218+ – Now there are 2 ways to do it. The Docker Way or the manual package way. I’ll cover both starting with the Docker and you can jump to the manual package way (7min 42secs) as well. All in all there are 10 Steps for Docker and 2 Steps for the Manual Package way to complete this Installation. Lets go straight into it and I’ll show you on how to have the service up and running. Its very important to get till the UI so that we can install & update the Homebridge service as well as the device plugins with out any stress or multiple manual commands.

A big shout out to the Fantastic Work & Continuous support provided by all the developers of the Homebridge Community for making all of this possible. A big thumbs up to them!
