Pushover


The Pushover service is a platform for the notify component. This allows components to send messages to the user using Pushover.

Configuration

In order to get an API key you need to register an application on the Pushover website. Your Pushover user key can be found on the Pushover dashboard.

To use Pushover notifications, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
notify:
  - name: NOTIFIER_NAME
    platform: pushover
    api_key: ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZ
    user_key: ABCDEFGHJKLMNOPQRSTUVXYZ

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): Setting the optional parameter name allows multiple notifiers to be created. The default value is notify. The notifier will bind to the service notify.NOTIFIER_NAME.
  • api_key (Required): Your API key.
  • user_key (Required): Your user key for Pushover.

Example Automation:

- service: notify.entity_id
      data:
        message: "This is the message"
        title: "Title of message"
        data:
          url: "https://www.home-assistant.io/"
          sound: pianobar
          priority: 0

Component specific values in the nested data section are optional.

To use notifications, please see the getting started with automation page.

When sending a notification, optional parameters can also be set as per the pushover API documentation.
