Insteon (Local)


The insteon_local component let you use your Insteon Hub with Home Assistant.

To integrate your Insteon local setup with Home Assistant, add the following section to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml platform entry
insteon_local:
  host: YOUR HUB IP
  username: YOUR HUB USERNAME
  password: YOUR HUB PASSWORD

Configuration variables: Note: The username and password here are for the hub and are different than the ones used to access the app. You can usually find these on the bottom of your hub (unless you’ve changed them through the settings in the app)

  • host (Required): The IP address of your hub.
  • username (Required): The username used to access the Insteon interface (find in your Insteon app).
  • password (Required): The password used to access the Insteon interface.
  • timeout (Optional): Timeout to wait for connections. Defaults to 10 seconds.
  • port (Optional): The port your hub is configured to listen to. Defaults to 25105.
