Salt Fiber Box

The salt platform offers presence detection by looking at connected devices to a Salt Fiber Box router from Salt, which is an internet provider in Switzerland.

The router only allows one user session at a time. If you log into the router's web interface, the platform will stop updating until you log out.


To use a Salt Fiber Box router in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: salt
    username: admin
    password: YOUR_PASSWORD
