The Starling Bank sensor platform allows you to monitor your account balance data as sensors in Home Assistant.
- Turn off the lights when money’s tight?
- Play a song when you reach a savings goal?
- Sound an alarm if you go into your overdraft?
Once you have your own Starling bank account you will need to sign up for a Starling developer account here. You won’t need to do any development but you will need to get a “Personal Access Token” that will allow the integration to access your account balance.
Once you’ve signed up:
- Head to the Personal Access Section of your developer account.
- Click “Create Token”.
- Give your token a name e.g., “Home Assistant”.
- Tick the permissions “account:read” and “balance:read”. The others you can leave un-ticked.
- Click “Create” and make a note of the newly created token, you will need this for your Home Assistant configuration.
