ClickSend text-to-speech

The clicksend_tts platform uses ClickSend to deliver text-to-speech (TTS) notifications from Home Assistant.

Go to your ClickSend Dashboard section and create your new project. After creating your project, you should now be able to obtain your username and api_key.

To add ClickSend to your installation, add the following to your Home Assistant configuration.yaml file:

  - platform: clicksend_tts
    name: ClickSend
    api_key: CLICKSEND_API_KEY
    recipient: PHONE_NO

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): Setting the optional parameter name allows multiple notifiers to be created. The default value is ClickSend. The notifier will bind to the service notify.NOTIFIER_NAME.
  • username (Required): Your username.
  • api_key (Required): Your API Key.
  • recipient (Required): Your phone number. This is where you want to send your notification SMS messages (e.g., 09171234567)
  • language (Optional): The language you want to use to convert the message to audio. Accepted values are found in the ClickSend Documentation. Default value is en-us.
  • voice (Optional): The voice that needs to be used to play the message to the recipient. Allowed values are female or male. Default value is female.
