Home Assistant must be on the same network as the devices for uPnP discovery to work.
If running Home Assistant in a Docker container use switch
--net=host to put it on the host’s network.
There is currently a known issue with running this component on a 64-bit version of Python and Windows.
If you are on Windows and you’re using Python 3.5, download the Netifaces dependency.
If you see
Not initializing discovery because could not install dependency netdisco==0.6.1 in the logs, you will need to install the
python3-devel package on your system manually (eg.
sudo apt-get install python3-dev or
sudo dnf -y install python3-devel). On the next restart of Home Assistant, the discovery should work. If you still get an error, check if you have a compiler (
gcc) available on your system.
For DSM/Synology, install via debian-chroot see this forum post.
If you are developing a new platform, please read how to make your platform discoverable for further details.
