Home Assistant is an open source home automation platform. I have mine connecting to and automating most of the smart things in my home. Many times I want to manipulate those things manually, and although it’s possible to configure buttons in the Home Assistant mobile app, I would much prefer to have these controls on a page inside Home Remote.
This is something I’ve been meaning to add for a while now. I know it’s possible with a custom plugin or MQTT client, but it’s probably about time for an official integration.
Would love to see this, I am not sold on HASS interface
Home Assistant is the next planned integration. I will be working on that this month.
This is great news! HASS interface on tablet and even some add-ons that provide tablet interfaces aren’t that great IMO. I would much more prefer the Home Remote!
Does this mean you will be able to read from HA to get devices and statuses?
Yes. That is correct.
