IBM Watson IoT Platform


The watson_iot component enables you to link the devices in Home Assistant with an IBM Watson IoT Platform instance.

Configuration

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'

Configuration Variables
