KNX


The KNX integration for Home Assistant allows you to connect to a KNX/IP devices.

The component requires a local KNX/IP interface like the Weinzierl 730. Through this, it will send and receive commands to and from other devices to the KNX bus.

Please note, the knx platform does not support Windows and needs at least python version 3.5.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Configuration

To use your KNX in your installation, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

knx:

Optional, recommended for large KNX installations (>100 devices) and/or if you want to use the XKNX abstraction also for other scripted tools outside of Home Assistant:

knx:
  config_file: '/path/to/xknx.yaml'
  • config_file (Optional): The path for XKNX configuration file.

If the auto detection of the KNX/IP device does not work you can specify ip/port of the tunneling device:

knx:
  tunneling:
    host: '192.168.2.23'
    port: 3671
    local_ip: '192.168.2.109'
  • host: Host of the KNX/IP tunneling device.
  • port: Port of the KNX/IP tunneling device.
  • local_ip: IP of the local interface.

Explicit connection to a KNX/IP routing device:

knx:
  config_file: '/path/to/xknx.yaml'
  routing:
     local_ip: '192.168.2.109'
  • local_ip: The local IP address of interface (which should be used for multicasting).
knx:
    fire_event: True
    fire_event_filter: ["1/0/*", "6/2,3,4-6/*"]
  • fire_event (Optional): If set to True, platform will write all received KNX messages to event bus
  • fire_event_filter (Optional): If fire_event is set fire_event_filter has to be specified. fire_event_filter defines a list of patterns for filtering KNX addresses. Only telegrams which match this pattern are sent to the HOme Assistant event bus.
  • state_updater (Optional): The component will collect the current state of each configured device from the KNX bus to display it correctly within Home-Assistant. Set this option to False to prevent this behaviour.
  • time_address (Optional): Broadcast current local time to KNX bus with configured group address.

Services

In order to directly interact with the KNX bus, you can now use the following service:

Domain: knx
Service: send 
Service Data: {"address": "1/0/15", "payload": 0}
  • address: KNX group address
  • payload: Payload, either an integer or an array of integers

Known issues

Due to lame multicast support the routing abstraction and the gateway scanner only work with Python >=3.5.
