Telegram broadcast

Telegram implementation to support sending messages only. Your Home Assistant instance does not have to be exposed to the Internet and there is no polling to receive messages sent to the bot.


To integrate this into Home Assistant, add the following section to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: broadcast
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
      - 12345
      - 67890
