Harman Kardon AVR Network Receivers

The harman_kardon_avr platform allows you to control Harman Kardon Network Receivers from Home Assistant.

Supported devices:

  • Harman Kardon AVR-151S
  • Other Harman Kardon AVR receivers (untested)

To add a Harman Kardon Network Receiver to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: harman_kardon_avr
    host: IP_ADDRESS

Configuration Variables


(string)(Required)IP address of the device, e.g.,


(string)(Optional)Name of the device. If not set, Harman Kardon AVR is used.

Default value: Harman Kardon AVR


(integer)(Optional)The port to talk to the receiver. If not set, 10025 is used.

Default value: 10025

A few notes:

  • The newest firmware automatically shuts down the AVR after a certain amount of time. The AVR is then not available on the network anymore, so the ‘on’ command will not work.
  • The AVR has no endpoints to determine the volume, muted, playing etc., so if the remote control is used, HA will not know the new states of the device.
