Denon Network Receivers


The denon platform allows you to control a Denon Network Receivers from Home Assistant. It might be that your device is supported by the Denon AVR platform.

A few notes for platform: denon

  • The receiver handles only one telnet connection and refuses others.
  • Be careful with the volume. 100% or even 50% is very loud.
  • To be able to wake up the receiver, activate the “remote” setting in the receiver’s settings.
  • Play and pause are supported, toggling is not possible.
  • Seeking cannot be implemented as the UI sends absolute positions. Only seeking via simulated button presses is possible.
