UPnP/IGD


The upnp integration enables you to collect network statistics from your router such as bytes in/out and packets in/out, uptime, WAN IP address, and WAN connectivity status. This information is provided by the UPnP/Internet Gateway Device (IGD) Protocol if enabled on your router.

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

  • Binary Sensor - If router is connected to the WAN.
  • Sensor - Allows to get the network statistics from your router such as bytes in/out and packets in/out, uptime, status, and IP. Sensor for uptime will only be there if supported by the router.

Please note that UPnP or NAT-PMP needs to be enabled on your router for this integration to work.

Configuration

Adding UPnP/IGD to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

UPnP/IGD can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as “Discovered”, which you can select to set it up right away.
