Abstract

Il sensor / alarm Minut Point it is a particularly versatile home automation component: anti-intrusion system (which can be integrated with non-domotic anti-theft systems), multi-sensor (thermal, noise etc.), presence detector. An eclectic handyman.

It goes without saying that the possibility to integrate it to the profirst personal home automation based onpersonale HUB Home Assistant makes it even more interesting: the various features can in fact be counted as single entities in order not only to consult the state but use them as trigger e condition for the proprie home automations.

The existence of the component "Point”Allows this particularly simple integration.

Client ID and Secret Key

For prosee the integration of Minut Point at Home Assistant it is necessary to define one proman app by developers at the cloud of proMinut producer. To date there is still no tool to do it independently, although Minut has confirmed that he is working to release a developer environment in the prosix months.

As indicated on the Minut website, to get the definition of proman app you need to write an email to hello@minut.com asking for the creation of the same, taking care of:

  • indicate the email address used when configuring the Minut Point via theapp "Point";
  • indicate the URL address of the proprio Home Assistant (Eg. https://casamia.duckdns.org:8123).

Once the email has been sent, in responder prowill provide to provide, in response to our email:

  • Client ID;
  • Secret Key;
  • Redirect URI (corresponding to the URL of the proprio Home Assistant).

Once this information is obtained it will be possible progive over.

Configuration

At this point it is possible to add to the configuration of Home Assistant the key that activates the "Point" component:

point:
  client_id: CLIENT_ID
  client_secret: CLIENT_SECRET

where, as is easy to guess, "client_id" and "client_secret"Should be valued with those provided by Minut in the previous step.

Configuration complete, provvedere on reboot di Home Assistant.

Completion of the integration

After rebooting Home Assistant will report a notification (top right at the web frontend):

Home Assistant - Notification

By clicking on the notification, Home Assistant will signal the acknowledgment of a new integration:Home Assistant - New Device dicoveredBy clicking on "Check it out"The list of recognized components will be accessed, in this case (obviously) Minut Point:

Home Assistant - Minut Point Discovery

Click therefore on “CONFIGURATION". A box like the following will open:

Home Assistant - Minut Point Integration

By clicking on "link”The browser will move to the Minut cloud, which will request to authenticate using the profirst account (the same release in the request via e-mail of generation) app developer):

Minut Point Clound - Authentication

Once authenticated, the Minut cloud will request to authorize the proman app Minut to connect to proprio Home Assistant:

Minut Point Clound - Authorization

After clicking on "Accept", Come back up Home Assistant and click on "Submit"In the previously opened box.

Finished the proprocedure, restart Home Assistant.

Use

For integration made, at the list of entities of Home Assistant they will be appburned in several new varieties:

Minut Point - Home Assisant - Alarm Control Panel

Minut Point - Home Assisant - entity list

Notice how the initial part of “friendly name”Of the entities derives from the assignment of the room attributed through theapp "Point" to the device.

The integrated entities are of three types:

  • Alarm
  • Binary Sensor
  • Sensor

The entity that reports the sound pressure value expressed in dBa, together with humidity and temperature (always useful in personal home automation) and the entity that is very interesting is very interesting.appresenta lo stato dell’impianto di allarme.

Finally, the type entity "Binary Sensor"That rappresets the status of the button on the back of the device. This entity can freely be used as trigger in automation: let's assume for example that you want to turn on or turn off a call light light.soggiorno by pressing it (we assume the button has been integrated with the name of binary_sensor.living_room_button_press):

automation:
  alias: Pressione del pulsante
  trigger:
    platform: state
    entity_id: binary_sensor.living_room_button_press
    to: 'on'
  condition: []
  action:
    service: light.toggle
    entity_id: light.soggiorno

Whenever the status of the entity binary_sensor.living_room_button_press will change to 'on' (so whenever it is pressed), the light light.soggiorno will reverse the profirst state, whatever it is.
