3 minutes of reading

The development team of Home Assistant has released a new, important updatenamento for the known personale HUB, which leads to the version 0.94.x.


The new onboarding system it is officially part of Home Assistant. In short, the new onboarding plan - after the first installation - to baptize the profirst home with a name and geographic location, as was done manually directly in the configuration.

This information will be stored in the configuration file, which means that this change has no effect on the old users profirst configuration. Basically, the new onboarding facilitates new users in defining the details of the prohome.


To the delight of many, a great revolution in the management of the exposure of entities towards Google Home: Now Home Assistant has an ad hoc panel - managed through the Nabu Casa cloud - that allows you to choose what to display and what not to the Google smart speaker. Obviously this feature is available only to users (paying) of the Nabu Casa service, and not to those who have integrated the smart speaker via other free roads.


The "Discovery" service, before this version a shade intrusive, has been revised in order to not add any integration without the specific approvazione of the administrator of Home Assistant. In addition, from this version every integration included in Home Assistant can specify how to be self-discovered through the proprio manifest, so that the integrations zeroconf and ssdp do the rest.

To activate this new approjust add "ssdp:"And"zeroconf:”To the configuration.
