0.78: More auth, Switchmate, Yale Smart Alarm, OpenTherm


It’s time for a new release and oh boy, what a time to be alive! Today marks our 5th (!!!) anniversary. That’s 5 years we’ve been bringing privacy focused and locally controlled home automation to your home. Happy birthday to us.

This release includes two new features for the auth system. The first one is long-lived access tokens. These are tokens that don’t expire and can be used in your scripts instead of API password. Instructions on how to create and use them can be found on your profile.

Also on your profile page is a new list of existing refresh tokens. These are all the tokens that are currently active for your account. If you ran into issues that the remember login dialog didn’t show, you might have a lot. Don’t worry, you can delete them all.

Backward-incompatible changes

  • Trafikverket weather: Instead of having multiple sensor configurations per station, add only one configuration per station and select the type of measurement data to subscribe to using monitored_conditions. The configuration value type should no longer be used. (@endor-force - #15935) (sensor.trafikverket_weatherstation docs) (breaking change)
  • Geizhals: config has changed. Remove domain and regex, specify locale instead: AT, EU, DE, UK or PL. (@JulianKahnert - #15990) (sensor.geizhals docs) (breaking change)
  • Update to EnvoyReader 0.2, support for more hardware. Change keys in monitored_conditions from 7_days_production and 7_days_consumption to seven_days_production and seven_days_consumption (@jesserizzo - #16212) (sensor.enphase_envoy docs) (breaking change)
  • Fix Mi Flora median calculation. Removed retries and timeout config parameters, they were not used for several months. Replaced cache_value config with scan_interval to fix a bug in the PR. (@PaulAnnekov - #16085) (sensor.miflora docs) (breaking change)
  • Twitch now requires a client_id and so the platform got updated. (@ioangogo - #16428) (sensor.twitch docs) (breaking change)
  • The radiotherm fan and mode state attributes were updated to reflect the real-time fan and mode states of the thermostat, rather than the overall selected state (automatic, mostly). The mode attributes still contain the selected modes (fan on/auto, heat/cool/auto). (@cpw - #15031) (climate.radiotherm docs) (breaking change)
  • The dnsip sensor now uses myip as default name. (@grea09 - #16205) (sensor.dnsip docs) (breaking change)
