KNX Light

The knx light component is used as in interface to switching/light actuators.

The knx component must be configured correctly, see KNX Component.

To use your KNX light in your installation, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: knx
    name: Kitchen-Light-1
    address: '1/0/9'
    brightness_address: '1/0/11'

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): A name for this device used within Home Assistant.
  • address: KNX group address for switching the light on and off.
  • brightness_address (Optional): KNX group address for dimming light.
  • state_address (Optional): separate KNX group address for retrieving the switch state of the light.
  • brightness_state_address (Optional): separate KNX group address for retrieving the dimmed state of the light.
  • color_address (Optional): separate KNX group address for setting the color of the light.

Some KNX devices can change their state internally without any messages on the KNX bus, e.g., if you configure a timer on a channel. The optional state_address can be used to inform Home Assistant about these state changes. If a KNX message is seen on the bus addressed to the given state address, this will overwrite the state of the switch object. For switching/light actuators that are only controlled by a single group address and can’t change their state internally, you don’t have to configure the state address.
