Home Assistant - Community App
Happy with this app? Thank you for supporting community app development with a small donation via PayPal (send to friends).
This Homey app adds support for many devices, scripts & scenes of your Home Assistant installation.
Currently the following device types are supported:
- Sensors and Binary Sensors
- Media Players
- Compound (combined & customizable device)
- Services (start via flowss)
Installing / using the app
To use this app, just install it from the Homey app store Home Assistant App for Homey | Homey
There’s no need for configuring things up front, you can start right away by adding your first device, only now you will have to enter your Home Assistant instance’s local IP address, along with the “Longlived token”
→ when you don’t have one, create it by scrolling down at ‘http://your.homeassistant.IPaddress:8123/profile’;
When successfully saved, you can install devices without interruption.
After adding a new device on your HA instance, the entity list in Homey is refreshed instantly and you can directly add your new entity as Homey device.
Device types explained
Any switch can be paired
You can press the button in Homey or react on a HA button press with a flow trigger
Lights will be paired with their matching capabilities (as available on HA);
this includes: brightness, colour and temperature
Media players can be paired, that includes TV sets, satellite / cable settop-boxes, home cinema receivers and more.
This device represents a device_tracker or person (with assigned device_tracker) entity. You get the current state an an presence alarm, which can be inverted in device settings.
Contol thermostats, heaters or air conditioner. Change the temperature and mode.
Device dependent modes (fan, preset, swing) can be set using flows cards.
Scenes you’ve created in HA are paired as buttons, just press it to start a linked scene
Scripts you’ve created in HA are paired as buttons, just press it to start a linked script
Sensors are devices which return numeric values, like measuring and metering devices, weather data like rain, wind and such.
Binary Sensors are devices which return an on/off or true/false state, like motion or contact sensors
And a special device:
Compound is a custom device; in your HA instance, you can create a device which combines any sensors or entities present, which you then can pair with Homey as one device.
There will be examples in this app’s forum topic. See link below.
- There’s a little extra you’ll need to do:
If you are using HACS, you can just add this integration to HACS searchig for “homey”.
If not, you can download the files from
and copy/paste them into ‘/config/custom_components/homey/’
You’ll find example files and a how-to in that folder.
