Home Assistant Official Logo

The development team di Home Assistant has released a new, important updatenamento for the known HUB free software for the personal home automation, which leads to the version 0.102.x. In this new one release there are many innovations. Several innovations.

We remind everyone, regardless, the importance of performing ALWAYS these updatesnameNTI.

App Android

As already anticipated a few days ago, the Android version of theapp for Home Assistant. This has nothing to do directly with this new version of theHUB, but so much the thing was presented together with the release 0.102.x.

Home Assistant Android app

Almond & Ada

From this new version two new virtual assistants are implemented, Almond and Ada, which in fact are the product of proopen source jets designed for the purpose of providing the user with a personal assistant, but conceived with respect for privacy in mind.

All the details on the original post by Home Assistant; approwe will merge for you and bring you back, proalmost with a FOCUS ad hoc.

Account linking

Many additions, such as sappe are, take advantage of the cloud of proconductor to be implemented. This logic mostly includes OAuth2 authentications which in turn require the user to register as a developer at the site of the proproducer, let him dispense a token, then indicate the address of the profirst home automation exposed publicly. This has always been a potential security risk.

From the 0.102.x of Home Assistant the cloud Nabu Casa offers for free to the developers of integrations for theHUB the possibility of using a mechanism that acts as a bridge between the developer account in the produttore and the proinstance Home Assistant.

The first integration that has been adapted to this new service is Somfy.

Obviously all the previous manual configurations continue and will continue to work, they will simply be, gradually, adequate for the use also through this mechanism of mediation via cloud.

Automation and natural language

To write automationsometimes it seems an im companyproba. Home Assistant, from the 0.102.x version, introduces a new experimental functionality, that is the possibility to define automations using the natural language.

From today it will be possible - although with limitations, especially in this preliminary and experimental version - to define automations simply by writing sentences, for example “when I go out turn off all the lights"

Home Assistant natural language automation

This functionality is related to the implementation of the personal assistant Almond quoted above.

Scene editor

From now, FINALLY, it is no longer necessary to draft the scenes by hand, but a real editor is available proavailable in the configuration section of theHUB.

Home Assistant scene editorThe output of the scenes prolearned lands, as can be easily understood, near the end scenes.yaml, which is included in the configuration Home Assistant with the only addition of the item “scene:! include scenes.yaml"
