12. Home Assistant Integration

If you would like to control your devices in Home assistant with Alexa, Google Home, Siri or IFTTT, you only need to follow these steps.

  1. Install Home assistant in your Windows, Linux, Mac, or Raspberry

  2. Install the Plugin MQTT

4. Replace your username and password (Or API key) and add the configuration below to the file configuration.yaml file.

mqtt:
broker: smartnest.cz
port: 1883
client_id: "homeassistant-USERNAME"
username: "USERNAME"
password: "API-KEY"
discovery: true
discovery_prefix: "homeassistant-USERNAME"

5. After this restart your Home Assistant and it will discover all the devices you have created in Smartnest. This will allow you to use the Home assistant's rich interface and still be able to control your devices from any voice assistant.

6. Done!
