Bbox


The bbox platform uses the Bbox Modem Router from the French Internet provider Bouygues Telecom. Sensors are mainly bandwidth measures.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Due to third party limitation, the sensors will only be available if Home Assistant and the Bbox are on the same local area network. You can check this by going to 192.168.1.254 with your web browser.

Presence Detection

The bbox platform offers presence detection by looking at connected devices to a Bbox based router from Bouygues, which is one of the main Internet provider in France.

Bbox is a generic name for different hardware routers. The platform has been tested with the following devices:

Configuration

To use an Bbox router in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
device_tracker:
  - platform: bbox

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Optional)IP address of your Bbox device.

Default value: 192.168.1.254

For now and due to third party limitation, the Bbox must be on the same local network as the Home Assistant installation.

See the device tracker component page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked.
