Command Line Notify

The command_line platform allows you to use external tools for notifications from Home Assistant. The message will be passed in as STDIN.

To enable those notifications in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
    platform: command_line
    command: "espeak -vmb/mb-us1"

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): Setting the optional parameter name allows multiple notifiers to be created. The default value is notify. The notifier will bind to the service notify.NOTIFIER_NAME.
  • command (Required): The action to take.

To use notifications, please see the getting started with automation page.
