ffmpeg platform allows you to use any video or audio feed with FFmpeg for various sensors in Home Assistant.
ffmpeg process is broken, the sensor will be unavailable. To control the FFmpeg process of sensor, use the service
To add FFmpeg with noise detection to your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry binary_sensor: - platform: ffmpeg_noise input: FFMPEG_SUPPORTED_INPUT
The threshold of detecting noise, in dB. 0 is very loud and -100 is low.
How long the noise needs to be over the peak to trigger the state.
The time to reset the state after no new noise is over the peak.
To experiment with values:
ffmpeg -i YOUR_INPUT -vn -filter:a silencedetect=n=-30dB:d=1 -f null -
If the noise sensor becomes unresponsive, make sure you have
extra_arguments: -nostats in the configuration.
