Jabber (XMPP)

The xmpp platform allows you to deliver notifications from Home Assistant to a Jabber (XMPP) account.

To enable Jabber notifications in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
    platform: xmpp
    sender: YOUR_JID
    recipient: YOUR_RECIPIENT

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.
  • sender (Required): The Jabber ID (JID) that will act as origin of the messages. Add your JID including the domain, eg. your_name@jabber.org.
  • password (Required): The password for your given Jabber account.
  • recipient (Required): The Jabber ID (JID) that will receive the messages.
  • tls (Optional): Allow to disable TLS. Defaults to true.
  • verify (Optional): Allow disabling SSL certificate validity check (e.g., self-signed certificate). Defaults to true.
  • room (Optional): Room’s name (e.g., example@conference.jabber.org). If set, send a message to chatroom instead of the sender.

sleekxmpp, as of version 1.3.2, does not support >TLS1. If you are running your own XMPP server (e.g. Prosody, ejabberd) make sure to allow using TLS1.

All Jabber IDs (JID) must include the domain. Make sure that the password matches the account provided as sender.
