Pushbullet Mirrors

The pushbullet sensor platform reads messages from Pushbullet, a free service to send information between your phones, browsers, and friends. This sensor platform provides sensors that show the properties of the latest received Pushbullet notification mirror.

Notification Mirroring allows users to see their Android device’s notifications on their computer. It must be first enabled in the app and is currently only available on the Android platform. For more information, please see this announcement on the Pushbullet Blog.

To enable the Pushbullet sensor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: pushbullet
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
      - body

Configuration variables:

  • api_key (Required): Enter the API key for Pushbullet. Go to https://www.pushbullet.com/#settings/account to retrieve your API key/access token.

  • monitored_conditions array (Optional): Properties of the push to monitor. Defaults to body and title.

    • application_name: The application sending the push.
    • body: Body of the message.
    • notification_id: ID of the notification.
    • notification_tag: Tag (if the application sending supports it).
    • package_name: Name of the sender’s package.
    • receiver_email: The email of the push’s target.
    • sender_email: The sender of the push.
    • source_device_iden: ID of the sender’s device.
    • title: Title of the push.
    • type: Type of push.

All properties will be displayed as attributes. The properties array are just for logging the sensor readings for multiple properties.
