NAD


The nad platform allows you to control a NAD receiver through RS232, TCP and Telnet from Home Assistant.

To add an NAD receiver to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry for RS232 configuration
media_player:
  - platform: nad
    serial_port: /dev/ttyUSB0
# Example configuration.yaml entry for TCP configuration
media_player:
  - platform: nad
    type: TCP
    host: IP_ADDRESS

Configuration Variables

type

(string)(Optional)

Type of communication. Valid types are RS232, Telnet or TCP

Default value:

RS232

serial_port

(string)(Optional)

The serial port. (for RS232 type only)

Default value:

/dev/ttyUSB0

host

(string)(Optional)

The IP address of your amplifier. (for TCP and Telnet types)

port

(integer)(Optional)

The port number of the device. (for Telnet type only)

Default value:

53

name

(string)(Optional)

Name of the device.

Default value:

NAD Receiver

min_volume

(integer)(Optional)

Minimum volume in dB to use with the slider.

Default value:

-92

max_volume

(integer)(Optional)

Maximum volume in dB to use with the slider.

Default value:

-20

sources

(list | string)(Optional)

A list of mappings from source to source name. Valid sources are 1 to 10. (for RS232 and Telnet types)

volume_step

(integer)(Optional)

The amount in dB you want to increase the volume with when pressing volume up/down. (for TCP type only)

Default value:

4

The min_volume and max_volume are there to protect you against misclicks on the slider so you will not blow up your speakers when you go from -92dB to +20dB. You can still force it to go higher or lower than the values set with the plus and minus buttons.

On linux the user running home-assistant needs dialout permissions to access the serial port. This can be added to the user by doing sudo usermod -a -G dialout <username>. Be aware that the user might need to logout and logon again to activate these permissions.

A full configuration example could look like this:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
media_player:
  - platform: nad
    serial_port: /dev/ttyUSB0
    name: NAD Receiver
    min_volume: -60
    max_volume: -20
    sources:
      1: 'Kodi'
      2: 'TV'
