Panasonic Viera


The panasonic_viera platform allows you to control a Panasonic Viera TV.

Configuration

To configure your Panasonic Viera TV, head to the Configuration > Integrations page. Click on the plus (+) button to add a new integration.

Once the integration is loaded, with your TV turned on and connected to your local network, enter the IP address of your TV and a name of your choice.

If your TV needs to be paired, you will be prompted to type the PIN code that will be displayed on it.

To allow your TV to be turned on or controlled while off, enable Powered On By Apps in the TV Settings: Network > TV Remote App Settings

Manual configuration

If you prefer to use YAML to set up your Panasonic Viera TV, you can still do it. It also allows for some extra settings.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
panasonic_viera:
  host: YOUR_TV_IP
