Google Home Bluetooth tracker


The googlehome platform allows you to detect presence using an unofficial Google Home API.

Configuration

To integrate Google Home Bluetooth tracker in Home Assistant, add the following section to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
device_tracker:
  - platform: googlehome
    host: IP_ADDRESS

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Required)The IP address of the Google Home unit.

rssi_threshold

(integer)(Optional)The threshold for the RSSI signal of the device.

Default value: -70

Usage

Devices will appear in the format devicetracker.<home hub ip>_<device mac address>. Note that dots are removed from the IP and BT MAC addresses.

After running this component for a little while, you will likely see many devices appear. It’s advisable to set the configuration to not discover new devices once the device you want to track have appeared (see device tracker configuration for details).
