Pioneer Network Receivers

The pioneer platform allows you to control Pioneer Network Receivers. Please note, however, that the more recent Pioneer models work with Onkyo platform instead.

To add a Pioneer receiver to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: pioneer

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The IP of the Pioneer device, eg.
  • name (Optional): The name you would like to give to the receiver.
  • port (Optional): The port on which the Pioneer device listens, e.g., 23 (default) or 8102
  • timeout (Optional): Number of seconds (float) to wait for blocking operations like connect, write, and read.


  • Some Pioneer AVRs use the port 23 default and some are reported to use 8102.
  • timeout is a socket level option and should only be configured if you know what you are doing.
