watson_iot component enables you to link the devices in Home Assistant
with an IBM Watson IoT Platform instance.
To use this component, you first need to register a gateway device type and then a gateway device in your IoT platform instance. For instructions on how to do this check the official documentation which provides the details on doing this. After you register the gateway device for your home-assistant you’ll need 4 pieces of information:
- Organization ID
- Gateway device Type
- Gateway device ID
- Authentication Token
With this basic information you can configure the component:
# Example configuration.yaml entry: watson_iot: organization: 'organization_id' type: 'device_type' id: 'device_id' token: 'auth_token'
(string)(Required)The Organization ID for your Watson IoT Platform instance
(string)(Required)The device type for the gateway device to use
(string)(Required)The device id for the gateway device to use
(string)(Required)The authentication token for the gateway device
(map)(Optional)Configure which components should be excluded from recording to Watson IoT Platform.
