transmission platform allows you to monitor your downloads with Transmission from within Home Assistant and setup automation based on the information.
To use the monitoring, your transmission client needs to allow remote access. If you are running the graphical transmission client (transmission-gtk) go to Edit -> Preferences and choose the tab Remote. Check Allow remote access, enter your username and your password, and uncheck the network restriction as needed.
If everything is setup correctly, the details will show up in the frontend.
