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
notify:
  - platform: webostv
    host: 192.168.0.112
    name: livingroom_tv
    filename: webostv.conf

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The IP of the LG WebOS Smart TV, e.g. 192.168.0.10
  • 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.
  • icon (Optional): The path to an image file to use as the icon in notifications. If provided, this image will override the Home Assistant logo.

A possible automation could be:

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

The icon can be overridden for individual notifications by providing a path to an alternative icon image to use:

automation:
  - alias: Front door motion
    trigger:
      platform: state
      entity_id: binary_sensor.front_door_motion
      state: 'on'
    action:
      service: notify.livingroom_tv
      data:
        message: "Movement detected: Front Door"
        data:
          icon: "/home/homeassistant/images/doorbell.png"
