Logitech Media Server TTS Notify Queue for Home Assistant

The LMS Notify TTS platform lets you use the TTS integration Service Say and a LMS media_player to alert you of important events. This integration provides a simple interface to use in your automations and alerts.

  • restores the state, volume, sync group, playlist and media possition after playing the notify message
  • queue messages for each player so new messages do not interrupt the current playing one
  • option alert sound before the message
  • option how many times to repeat the tts message
  • option volume for the tts message

Default options can be set in the configuration file and/or overridden for each message

In order to use this integration, you must already have a TTS platform installed and configured, and a Logitech Media Server working with the TTS platform. Also, make sure you have playlist directory defined on your LMS settings - resume won't work without working playlist save/resume.

To enable this platform in your installation, consider the following example using google_translate and an example


Copy this folder to <config_dir>/custom_components/lms_tts_notify/

Or add a custom repository in HACS:

Add the following entry in your configuration.yaml:

    - platform: google_translate
      service_name: google_say

    - platform: lms_tts_notify
      name: kitchen
      tts_service: tts.google_say
      device_group: group.all_persons
      alert_sound: Alert
      volume: 0.4

Please note that the tts_service parameter, must match the service_name defined in the TTS integration.
