Joaoapps Join


The joaoapps_join component exposes services from Join. In Home Assistant, the Join features are divided up in two locations, the Join component, and the Join notify platform. The notify platform allows us to send messages to Join devices, the component allows us to access the other special features that Join offers. When in doubt, you can reference the API documentation this this is based on.

In the configuration.yaml file you need to provide the api key and device id or name of the target device. You can find your device id and api key here.

To set it up, add the following information to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
notify:
  - platform: joaoapps_join
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
    device_id: DEVICE_ID
    device_ids: DEVICE_ID_1,DEVICE_ID_2
    device_names: DEVICE_1_NAME,DEVICE_2_NAME
    name: NAME
joaoapps_join:
  - name: NAME_OF_GROUP
    device_id: GROUP.GROUP_NAME
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY

The notify service has several optional parameters: icon, smallicon, image, sound, url, notification_id, tts, tts_language and vibration. You can use them like so:
