LG WebOS TV Notifications

The webostv platform allows you to send notifications to 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 and follow the configurator instructions:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: webostv
    name: livingroom_tv
    filename: webostv.conf

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The IP of the LG WebOS Smart TV, e.g.
  • name (Required): The name you would like to give to the LG WebOS Smart TV.
  • 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.

A possible automation could be:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - alias: Open a window
      platform: numeric_state
      entity_id: sensor.netatmo_livingroom_co2
      above: 999
      service: notify.livingroom_tv
        message: "You should open a window! (Livingroom Co2: ppm)"
