The Panasonic Viera integration allows you to control a Panasonic Viera TV.
There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:
- Media Player
Adding Panasonic Viera to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:
If the above My button doesn’t work, you can also perform the following steps manually:
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 your settings (if available): Network > TV Remote App Settings
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

# Example turn_on_action configuration.yaml entry with Wake-on-LAN panasonic_viera: host: YOUR_TV_IP name: Living Room TV turn_on_action: - service: wake_on_lan.send_magic_packet data: mac: "AA:BB:CC:DD:99:1A"
play_media function can be used to open web pages and other media types (images, movies) via URLs in the TV web browser.
# Example play_media script script: front_door_camera: alias: "Show who's at the door" sequence: - service: media_player.turn_on target: entity_id: media_player.living_room_tv - service: media_player.play_media target: entity_id: media_player.living_room_tv data: media_content_type: "url" media_content_id: YOUR_URL - delay: seconds: 5 - service: media_player.media_stop target: entity_id: media_player.living_room_tv
