Joaoapps Join

The Join platform exposes services from Join. In Home Assistant, the Join features are divided up in two locations, the Join component, and the Join notify platform. The notify platform allows us to send messages to Join devices, the the component allows us to access the other special features that Join offers.

In the configuration.yaml file you need to provide the device id of the target device. If you want to send to a group of devices, you need to provide an api key. You can find you device id and api key here.

To set it up, add the following information to your configuration.yaml file:

  - platform: joaoapps_join
    device_id: d5asdfasdf54645h45h368761dfe5gt8a
    name: droid                                       *optional
    api_key: asd97823jb628a34fwsdfwefd5384345tf2d     *optional

  - name: android
    api_key: asd97823jb628a34fwsdfwefd5384345tf2d

Configuration variables:

  • device_id (Required): The Id of your device.
  • api_key (Required): The API key for Join.

The notify service has two optional parameters: icon and small icon. You can use them like so:

{"message":"Hello!","title":"From Hass","data":{"icon":"","smallicon":""}}

The services exposed in the joaoapps_join component can be used with the service data described below:
