Freebox


The freebox integration allows you to observe and control Freebox router.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Configuration

If you have enabled the discovery integration, your Freebox should be detected automatically. Otherwise, you can set it up manually via the frontend or via your configuration.yaml file.

You can find out your Freebox host and port by opening this address http://mafreebox.freebox.fr/api_version in your browser. The returned JSON should contain an api_domain (host) and a https_port (port). Please consult the API documentation for more information.

Via the frontend

Menu: Configuration -> Integrations. Search for “Freebox”, add your host and port, click submit.

If you add the integration for the first time, follow the instructions in the Initial setup section.

Via the configuration file

freebox:
  host: foobar.fbxos.fr
  port: 1234

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Required)

The URL of the Freebox.

port

(string)(Required)

The HTTPS port the Freebox is listening on.

If you change your Freebox router for a new one, go into your Home Assistant configuration .storage folder and delete the “freebox” folder, then add the integration again.

Initial setup

You must have set a password for your Freebox router web administration page. Enable the option “Permettre les nouvelles demandes d’associations” and check that the option “Accès à distance sécurisé à Freebox OS” is active in “Gestion des ports” > “Connexions entrantes”.

The first time Home Assistant will connect to your Freebox, you will need to authorize it by pressing the right arrow on the facade of the Freebox when prompted to do so.

To make the Wi-Fi switch and the reboot service working you will have to add “Modification des réglages de la Freebox” permission to Home Assistant application in “Paramètres de la Freebox” > “Gestion des accès” > “Applications”.

Supported routers

Only the routers with Freebox OS are supported:

  • Freebox V7 also known as Freebox Delta
  • Freebox V6 also known as Freebox Revolution
  • Freebox mini 4k

Presence Detection

This platform offers presence detection by keeping track of the devices connected to a Freebox router.

Notes

Note that the Freebox waits for some time before marking a device as inactive, meaning that there will be a small delay (1 or 2 minutes) between the time you disconnect a device and the time it will appear as “away” in Home Assistant. You should take this into account when specifying the consider_home parameter. On the contrary, the Freebox immediately reports devices newly connected, so they should appear as “home” almost instantly, as soon as Home Assistant refreshes the devices states.

Sensor

This platform offers you sensors to monitor a Freebox router. The monitored conditions are internal temperature and upload and download rates in KB/s.

Service

Service freebox.reboot

This service will reboot your Freebox router. It does not take any parameter. Be aware there is no confirmation.

Switch

This platform offers you a switch to toggle the Wi-Fi on or off. This will toggle all Wi-Fi interfaces of the router (all SSID and all bands).
