LG webOS Smart 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
  - platform: webostv

Configuration variables:

  • host (Optional): The IP of the LG webOS Smart TV, e.g.
  • turn_on_action (Optional): Defines an action to turn the TV on.
  • name (Optional): The name you would like to give to the LG webOS Smart TV.
  • timeout (Optional): The timeout for connections to the TV in seconds.
  • filename (Optional): The filename where the pairing key with the TV should be stored. This path is relative to Home Assistant’s config directory. It defaults to webostv.conf.
  • customize array (Optional): List of options to customize.
    • sources array (Optional*): List of hardware inputs.

If you do not specify host:, all LG webOS Smart TVs within your network will be auto-discovered if they use the default name setting of [LG] webOS TV. Home Assistant is able to turn on a LG webOS Smart TV if you specify an action, like HDMI-CEC or WakeOnLan.

A full configuration example will look like the sample below:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: webostv
    name: Living Room TV
    timeout: 5
    filename: webostv.conf
      service: persistent_notification.create
        message: "Turn on action"
