Linksys Smart Wi-Fi

The linksys_smart platform offers presence detection by looking at connected devices to a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi based router.

Tested routers:

  • Linksys WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Wireless Router
  • Linksys WRT1900ACS Dual-band Wi-Fi Router
  • Linksys EA6900 AC1900 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router
  • Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream AC2200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router


For this platform to work correctly, it is necessary to disable the “Access via wireless” feature in the Local Management Access section of the router administration page. If “Access via wireless” is not disabled, a connectivity conflict arises because the Home Assistant integration is trying to pass userid and password, but the router is only expecting a password.


To use a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router in your Home Assistant installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: linksys_smart
