Manual configuration steps

Known limitations

Z-Wave, Hue and Sonos not supported

Even though most Overkiz hubs support adding Z-Wave, Hue, and Sonos devices, this isn’t supported in the Overkiz integration. All these platforms have native integrations in Home Assistant which are more stable and feature-rich.

Overkiz API limits

Server busy, please try again later. (Too many executions)

During peak hours, it could happen that the Overkiz platform is unable to execute your command. The integration will try to retry this command, however, this is not guaranteed to succeed.

Internet connectivity required

This integration communicates via the cloud-based Overkiz API, since Overkiz doesn’t expose a local API on their hubs. If you are only using Somfy IO compatible devices, you could purchase a Velux KLF200 hub and use the Velux integration which has a local API.

Local API via HomeKit Controller

If your hub (e.g. Somfy TaHoma) supports HomeKit natively, your setup code will be added as a sensor in Home Assistant. Look up your hub in Home Assistant and retrieve the value from the ‘HomeKit Setup Code’ sensor. You can now configure the HomeKit Controller integration in Home Assistant and benefit from local support.
