Aqualisa Wi-Fi enabled Shower

I have just had an Aqualisa shower installed in our bathroom. It has an app and I can start the shower remotely, at the correct temperature for each user so it has warmed up by the time I get in. No cold arms as you turn it on! It claims to work with Alexa via a skill which suggests some API ability. Unfortunately I don’t have the programming skill to backward engineer into Home Assistant. I was wondering does anyone else have this set-up and is anyone working on an integration please?

Did you ever get anywhere with this? Currently weighing up whether to invest in the Aqualisa Q range.

I can talk you through conducting some nmap scans to start off understanding what it makes available when connected to your network, but like you I’m not skilled in integrating to home assistant.

Ideally I’d like to have mine control velux windows and blinds for ventilation/privacy when the shower is on/off, obviously it’s an ideal presence measure if read only too.

I’m also in the same boat looking at purchasing one of these.
Not many options for 220v wifi showers

I have the shower - but initial traffic captures suggested it wasn’t possible to link. I’m not a coder but it is frustratingly the only piece of shiny tech I have that no-one has integrated! I even did a focus group for AquaLisa and it was one of my requests that they embrace this forum as it would likely result in more sales to a target market!


AquaLisa and home assistant should work together. If you have captured the packets, what kind of traffic can you see? Is it sent via encrypted protocols?

Im considering one of these aqualisa showers and baths, so came looking to see if there was an integration already out there. A bit of googling showed me nothing yet for Aqualisa, and Im new to homeassistant, but I did come across an existing homebridge integration, might be useful to others looking at aqualisa and homeassistant.

I am currently having an AquaLisa shower installed in my ensuite which supports wireless remote and I believe the general SmartValve automation. Should hopefully have it installed towards the end of next week though I still need to paint the ceiling after the builders finish installation before I can do much testing in the room. I’m happy to have a fiddle at reverse engineering the connection and integrating with Home Assistant when I get a moment.


Hey all - another one here getting the Aqualisa Q setup next week. I’d love to get this integrated into HomeKit. I have no idea where to start, is there anyway I can work with someone to get this into Home Assistance? Happy to donate for the cause!

I’ve found mine hit and miss from the App. Maybe 80% success rate. I’m not wildly impressed. I’d also be happy to test if anyone can do the complicated bit?

Apologies to all, I ended up waiting on choosing an alternative shower screen / enclosure, the shower itself is installed but not yet in use. The automation side is still on my todo list.

Sorry to revise this thread again. Did anyone get any luck with this brand of shower integrated into Home Assistant?

I worked out today it can be done with MQTT and a bit of DNS skullduggery. You need to set up an MQTT broker that accepts connections on port 8883 and has a SSL certificate (self-signed, the shower doesn’t care). Then in whatever controls DNS on your local network, point the name ‘’ at the IP address of your MQTT broker and reboot your shower by switching off the power supply to it. It will then reconnect to your broker and you can read its data and poke commands into it as you want.
This will break the mobile app, but that isn’t a great loss. Full details in this github conversation MQTT · Issue #10 · cr3ative/homebridge-aqualisa · GitHub

For a quick rundown of a way to do this:

  1. set up your shower through the normal process (add to wifi, configure with app, etc)
  2. install an MQTT broker - note the included HA Mosquitto broker will not work here as the shower will be using an anonymous connection which is disabled in the one which ships with Home Assistant. I installed Mosquitto in a docker container.
  3. Install the dnsmasq add-on in Home Assistant and add a line which points at your local MQTT broker.
  4. Create a self-signed SSL certificate and configure your MQTT broker to use it
  5. Configure your wifi to use your Home Assistant box as a DNS server (so dnsmasq can redirect the shower)
  6. Power-cycle the shower (ie: switch off and on the main power to the base unit)
  7. Check your MQTT logs to see if you’ve now got a bunch of data from a 10-digit numeric topic. I used MQTT Explorer to help with this.
  8. Test it’s working by taking that 10 digit topic and publishing to <topic>/request/onoffstate with a JSON packet of {"state": true}

If your shower turns on, you’ve got local control.
