Because i didn’t find a Android app that fit my needs i decided to create my own app.
What is different from the other apps:
- NFC TAG reader (read and send NFC tags and send that information to HA)
- MQTT device sensors
- lovelace configuration
- device tracker using GPS + battery information
- new Home Assistant AUTH support
- ability to search Home Assistant server while configuring
- ability to configure the app for external usage ( the app will differentiate when its running on local network
or remote and it will try to connect remotely only if this is configured)
- small memory footprint
- Firebase notifications support
- widgets support
The application is still in development so please let me know what kind of features you would like to see in it.

- Open Ariela and fallow the setup instructions
- Note that automatic server discovery will work only if your Home Assistant server is running on http mode with default 8123 server. If you are using https or running on another port you can skip this.
- If you choose to manually enter your server, the entry must be something similar with : http://192.168.1.10:8123 or https://myserver.duckdns.com:8123 (change 8123 with the port your server is running)
- After the Ariela says that the connection is successful the credentials screen will going to appear.
If running Home Assistant version lower then 0.78 leave the username blank and fill the password only. If you are running Home Assistant 0.78 or greater, put your user name and password and hit connect. As a option the weblogin is also available.

Patreon support: developing Ariela is done in the spare time. Because of that some features or bugs fixing may arrive later then i wish. If you want to help me by putting more time in Ariela development, introduce new features, fixing bugs etc you can do this by using Patreon. It is not required to use this service, but any help i will really appreciate it. Patreon link: https://www.patreon.com/arielahomeassistant
