If you want HomeGenie support new hardware/feature, but you're not a developer, you can donate to the author so that he can buy the hardware and/or motivate the time needed for adding the requested feature.
In that case, you can try to find more people interested in the same feature, so you all can make small donations in order to reach the total amount needed for developing it.

The more you donate the more the author will be encouraged to satisfy your requests.

More in general consider donating HomeGenie whenever you found it useful or just for having sympathy for it =)
