Adding Integrations

Estimated reading: 2 minutes

THIS IS JUST A QUICK OVERVIEW. EVERY DRIVER FROM INNOVO HAS IT’S OWN INTEGRATION NOTE THAT SHOWS HOW TO ADD THAT INTEGRATION TO HOME ASSISTANT. REFER TO THOSE INTEGRATION NOTES FOR MORE DETAILS


Let’s start by adding your first integration
 so that you can see and change a smart home device.

From the sidebar, click on Settings > Devices & Services. At this screen you will be able to set up integrations with Home Assistant. You might notice a discovered section. This section contains integrations that were found on your network and can easily be added with a few clicks. If your integrations are not discovered, click the Add integration button in the lower right and search for your integration in that list.

In this example, we’ll add a Chromecast to Home Assistant. Chromecast uses the Google Cast integration. Although the below example has already discovered the device, let’s add it manually.

First, press the Add integration button in the lower right and search for your integration in that list.

Select Google Cast from the list. Because my Chromecast device was already discovered, it asks if I want to add the discovered one or a different one. I will choose the latter and setup another instance.

It now asks for the network IP address of the device. Describing how to identify a devices IP address is beyond the scope of this article because each network is different. However, the router is usually a good place to look. In this example, it’s 192.168.1.99.

If it was successful, it will show a message and allow you to set the area it belongs to.

When you’re done, navigate back to the web interface and voila, your devices are ready for you to control. You can always go back to add and remove integrations in the future.

If you get stuck, need more information, or want to see what the setup process is like, use the integration documentation.
