Local IP Address

The local_ip sensor will expose the local (LAN) IP address of your Home Assistant instance. This can be useful when your instance has a static public hostname (for example, if you use the Nabu Casa service), but have a dynamically allocated local LAN address (for example, configured via DHCP).


Adding Local IP Address to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.

  • In the sidebar click on Configuration.

  • From the configuration menu select: Integrations.

  • In the bottom right, click on the Add Integration button.

  • From the list, search and select “Local IP Address”.

  • Follow the instruction on screen to complete the set up.

After completing, the Local IP Address integration will be immediately available for use.
