Minecraft Server

Minecraft servers allow players to play the sandbox video game Minecraft by Mojang AB online or via a local area network with other players. The Minecraft Server integration lets you retrieve information from a Minecraft server (Java edition) within Home Assistant.

The server must be version 1.7 or higher, since older versions don't expose any information.


Adding Minecraft Server 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 “Minecraft Server”.

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

After completing, the Minecraft Server integration will be immediately available for use.
