Unitymedia Horizon HD Recorder

The horizon integration allows you to control a Unitymedia Horizon HD Recorder from Home Assistant.

To add a Horizon HD Recorder to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: horizon

Configuration Variables

host string Required

The hostname or address of the device.

port integer (Optional)

The port of the device to connect to.

name string (Optional)

The name of the device used in the frontend.

Preparation of the Horizon HD Recorder

The Home Networking (“Heimnetzwerk”) service needs to be enabled at the settings menu of the Horizon receiver. Once you have set up the Media Library (“Medienbibliothek”), we can determine whether the device is turned on or off. Without this, the integration will fail to start.
