Home Assistant is a popular open-source smart home platform known for its flexibility and extensive integrations/services. It has been one of the most requested features in the community, so we’re excited to announce its release!
This new connection offers Home Assistant users the ability create custom dashboards in SharpTools’ drag-and-drop dashboard interface and create automations in our visual rule flow editor. This provides an intuitive and easy-to-use layer on top of Home Assistant’s powerful integrations!
How to connect Home Assistant to SharpTools?
Click the button below to add the SharpTools repository to your Home Assistant Addon Store. When prompted, press ‘Add’ next to the prefilled repository field.
Once the SharpTools repository is added, install the SharpTools Addon from the Addon Store
I don’t think they are putting Home Assistant connection as a premium feature.
“Unlimited Smart Home Hub Connections” and “Unlimited Device Connections” are listed as free features. That would likely mean Home Assistant is free. Does not mention anywhere Home Assistant is part of premium.
This is just an offer to make it exciting and attract customers to premium plan due to Home Assistant.
Not yet, the add-on needs some changes if running in a container somewhere else. We had initial internal discussion on this, but we don’t have a timeline yet. Can you please create a feature request and describe your HA setup ion the link below? This would help us collect the info and interests. Thanks.
@Martin_Ottolangui welcome to the community and thanks for your feedback.
Do you mind sending the screenshots of your entity list to email@example.com so we can come up with a better UX on this? We are aware of the inconvenience of having to click multiple times to authorize entities, and we don’t don’t think a simple “authorize all” option is a good fit neither. Thanks.
I thought this could be my saviour before completley ripping out HA and going back to Smarthings. The learning curve is just too high for me, i really dont want to learn YAML just to turn my bathroom lights on and off via motion
Was all going well in Sharptools until I tried to set a brightness level and a colour temp of a rule…seems I can do one or the other? Am i completely missing something?
Hi all, we just rolled out an update (v1.0.2) to support the scene entities. Please upgrade your addon and re-authorize your scene entities to SharpTools. Once the scene entity(device) is added to the dashboard, it will activate the scene when tapped. And the scene entity can be used in the Rule Engine as well.
