Open Home Automation

THIS REPOSITORY IS NOT MAINTAINED ANYMORE, SEE ESPHome AS AN ALTERNATIVE.

Introduction

Nowadays everything becomes connected to the Internet and gives us a glimpse of many new possibilities. Home automation is part of it and offers many advantages for their users. This repository is dedicated to Home Assistant, an open source project with an amazing community, ESP8266 and ESP32 modules, the MQTT protocol and much more [...].

Home Assistant

Home Assistant is a home automation platform running on Python 3. The goal of Home Assistant is to be able to track and control all devices at home and offer a platform for automating control [Home-Assistant].

MQTT

MQTT is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol. It was designed as an extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport. It is useful for connections with remote locations where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium [mqtt.org].

Requirements

Most of the examples below are using the MQTT protocol and so require to integrate MQTT into Home Assistant by defining a MQTT broker. More information can be found at the MQTT component's page.

Stock Home Assistant

configuration.yaml :

mqtt:
  broker: 127.0.0.1
  port: 1883                      
  username: '[Redacted]'
  password: '[Redacted]'
  discovery: true                 # optional
  discovery_prefix: homeassistant # optional

Hass.io

configuration.yaml :

mqtt:
  broker: core-mosquitto
  username: '[Redacted]'
  password: '[Redacted]'
  discovery: true                 # optional
  discovery_prefix: homeassistant # optional

More options to connect the broker are available and described here.

Sketches for ESP8266/ESP32 modules

Lights, sensors, switches and more can be built on top of MQTT. This section contains a few examples based on MQTT and on a NodeMCU board (ESP8266/ESP32).
