0.52: Scripts editor, Nello.io locks, HipChat and Abode Home Security


Although the summer is in full progress, the development hasn’t stalled. This release brings bug fixes, clean ups and another 8 new integrations. On top of that we are also introducing a new script editor!

To use the scripts editor, create a new file in your config directory named scripts.yaml and copy your existing scripts over:

# scripts.yaml
  alias: "Turn on the lights"
  - data: {}
    service: light.turn_on

Than update your configuration.yaml to look like this:

# Configuration.yaml example
script: !include scripts.yaml

Backward-incompatible changes

  • Remove spaces from Xiami switch attributes (@syssi - #8952) (switch.xiaomi docs) (breaking change)

  • eliqonline: The optional channel_id configuration variable of the Eliqonline sensor needs to be a positive integer. (@molobrakos - #9072) (sensor.eliqonline docs) (breaking change)
  • MySensors: Not a breaking change per se but users that have not been following the mysensors serial API could face dropped messages after this change. Messages are now validated according to the API before being passed along from/to devices. See 0.11 release notes for more info. (@MartinHjelmare - #9069) (mysensors docs) (binary_sensor.mysensors docs) (climate.mysensors docs) (cover.mysensors docs) (device_tracker.mysensors docs) (light.mysensors docs) (notify.mysensors docs) (sensor.mysensors docs) (switch.mysensors docs) (breaking change)
  • Automatic has disabled password authentication on their API. Home Assistant will now use OAuth2 to authenticate accounts. The following steps must be taken to transition your setup:
    1. Log in to your Automatic developer account. In the Automatic Developer Apps Manager, specify the OAuth Redirect URL in the developer page. This should be configured to <home-assistant-url>/api/automatic/callback. (Example: http://homeassistant.local:8123/api/automatic/callback) Note that this URL only needs to be accessible from the browser you use to perform the authentication.
    2. Remove username/password from your automatic device tracker configuration in configuration.yaml.
    3. If you have authorized your account for scope:current_location, add current_location: true to your automatic device tracker configuration in configuration.yaml.
    4. When you restart Home Assistant, click on the Automatic Configure link in the Configurator card, and follow the instructions to authorize Home Assistant.

      NOTE: Automatic’s API is currently not correctly authorizing with refresh tokens, so Step 4 currently needs to be performed after every restart. (@armills - #8962 #9002) (configurator docs) (breaking change)
