The pushetta notify platform uses Pushetta to delivery notifications from Home Assistant to your devices.

To retrieve the API token, log into your account at http://www.pushetta.com and go to your Dashboard. Create a new channel by clicking on Channels and then Add a Channel.

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

# Example configuration.yaml entry
    platform: pushetta
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
    channel_name: YOUR_CHANNEL_NAME

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.
  • api_key (Required): Your API key for Pushetta.
  • channel_name (Required): The name of your channel.
  • send_test_msg (Optional): Disable/enable the test message send on Home Asssitant’s startup to test the API key and the existance of the channel. Default to False.

It’s easy to test your Pushetta setup outside of Home Assistant. Assuming you have a channel home-assistant, just fire a request and check the channel page in the dashboard for a new message.

curl -X POST \
    -H "Authorization: Token YOUR_API_KEY" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -d "{ \"body\" : \"Hello World\", \"message_type\" : \"text/plain\" }" \

For further details, please check the API.
