Alarms, Sonos and iTunes now supported


It’s like someone opened a can of rock solid developers and emptied it above our chat channel because it exploded with great conversations and solid contributions. Featured in release 0.7.3: Sonos, iTunes, Alarm component and Automation upgrade.

See GitHub for more detailed release notes.

Migration note: the scheduler component has been removed in favor of the automation component.

Sonos Sonos support has been added by @rhooper and @SEJeff. Home Assistant is now able to automatically detect Sonos devices in your network and set them up for you. It will allow you to control music playing on your Sonos and change the volume.

iTunes and airplay speakers @maddox has contributed support for controlling iTunes and airplay speakers. For this to work you will have to run itunes-api on your Mac as middleware.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  platform: itunes
  name: iTunes
  port: 8181

Automation Automation has gotten a lot of love. It now supports conditions, multiple triggers and new types of triggers. The best to get started with it is to head over to the new getting started with automation page.
