LG WebOS TV


The webostv platform allows you to control a LG WebOS Smart TV.

When the TV is first connected, you will need to accept Home Assistant on the TV to allow communication.

To add a TV to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: webostv

Configuration variables:

  • host (Optional): The IP of the LG WebOS Smart TV, eg. 192.168.0.10
  • name (Optional): The name you would like to give to the LG WebOS Smart TV.
  • customize array (Optional): List of options to customize.
    • sources array (Optional*): List of hardware inputs.

If you do not provide a host name, all LG WebOS Smart TV’s within your network will be auto-discovered if your TV network name is set to [LG] webOS TV.

A full configuration example will look like the sample below:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: webostv
    host: 192.168.0.10
    name: Living Room TV
