Home Assistant

Last updated 5 months ago

Open source home automation that puts local control and privacy first. Powered by a worldwide community of tinkerers and DIY enthusiasts. Perfect to run on a Raspberry Pi or a local server.

Messages between Snips and Home Assistant are passed via MQTT. By default, Snips and Home Assistant runs on their own MQTT broker.

We can either point Snips to the MQTT broker used by Home Assistant: In this case, we need to specify this in the /etc/snips.toml configuration file.

Or you can change Home assistant to use the MQTT broker used by Snips (https://www.home-assistant.io/components/snips/).
