TellStick


The tellstick integration integrates TellStick devices into Home Assistant. This integration allows users to add switches, lights, and sensors which are communicating with 433 MHz. There are a number of vendors (Capidi Elro, Intertechno, Nexa, Proove, Sartano, and Viking) who are selling products that work with TellStick. For more details, please check the TellStick protocol list.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Configuration

To get started, add the devices to your configuration.yaml file.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
tellstick:

For Hass.io users there is a TellStick add-on available.

# Example configuration.yaml entry for Hass.io with the TellStick add-on
tellstick:
  host: core-tellstick
  port: [50800, 50801]

Configuration Variables

signal_repetitions

(integer)(Optional)

Because the TellStick sends its actions via radio and from most receivers it’s impossible to know if the signal was received or not. Therefore you can configure the switch and light to try to send each signal repeatedly.

Default value:

1

host

(string)(Inclusive)

If you run TellStick on another server or with the Hass.io add-on.

port

(list)(Inclusive)

Needed with the host configuration variable. Must be port pair, for example [50800, 50801].

Cover

This tellstick cover platform allows you to control your TellStick covers.

To use your TellStick device, you first have to set up your Tellstick hub and then add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
cover:
  - platform: tellstick

Light

This tellstick light platform allows you to control your TellStick dimmers.

To use your TellStick device, you first have to set up your Tellstick hub and then add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
light:
  platform: tellstick

Sensor

The tellstick sensor platform allows you to get current meteorological data from a TellStick device.

To use your TellStick device, you first have to set up your Tellstick hub and then add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: tellstick

Configuration Variables

sensor

(string)(Optional)

Entry for a sensor with the ID and its name, e.g., ID: Name.

only_named

(list)(Optional)

Only add and include specified sensors. If this is not specified all sensors will be imported and the names will be based on each sensor’s ID number.

Default value:

false

id

(integer)(Required)

The ID-number of the sensor to include.

name

(string)(Required)

Specify the name of the selected sensor.

protocol

(string)(Optional)

The protocol that the sensor uses. Can be used if id isn’t unique enough.

model

(string)(Optional)

The model that the sensor uses. Can be used if id and protocol isn’t unique enough.

temperature_scale

(string)(Optional)

The scale of the temperature value.

Default value:

°C

datatype_mask

(integer)(Optional)

Mask to determine which sensor values to show based on. Please check the TellCore tellcore.constants documentation for details.

Default value:

127

Examples

In this section you find some real-life examples of how to use this sensor.
