Denos HEOS support


#1

Hi,

Would be great if you could implement support for Denon HEOS speakers.
I found this PDF file describing quite good the “api” for the speakers:
http://www.eurostar-ostrava.cz/files/01.2015_HEOS---CLI_PROTOCOL_V01.pdf

I not that good in programming myself, but I have created some simple python scripts for communicating with the API from HA using shell scripts. But an component would be really good to have.

You definitely should have a go at writing the component yourself, having done little Python I’ve just done one for Russound support in < 24 hours.


#3

Did you write the Russound plugin included in 0.25?


#4

Yeah I did.


#5

really would like support for heos… this is the only thing I’m missing at the moment since I migrated from Domoticz to Hass. Unfortunately I do not have python programming skills (yet :slight_smile: )


#6

Just registering my interest in this too. It would be great to see this added. Learning python is on my to-do list, but I’m still at ‘hello world’ right now…


#7

I am interested in this too. The link in the first post in broken… can someone relink this…


#8

Would also love HEOS Support in Home-Assistant :hearts:


#9

+1 for this, would love to have HEOS support

I think it is this doc (found this via the Reddit Heos forum) -http://www2.aerne.com/Public/dok-sw.nsf/1edd1194263fab29c12573ba003a1f32/9193bea412104506c1257dbd00298c78/$FILE/HEOS_CLI_PROTOCOL_Specification_290616.pdf

Here is the official documentation from denons own site ( yes it is officially published now)

Is somebody could have a look here ?

Platform not found: media_player.aioheos

Question: How to declare the platform as it is placed in a custom_components directory in .homeassistant
I will dig in the doc , but if somebody know , it could be faster

Who can help ? is there a solution ?


#13

Great find! Will try myself this weekend
Please post your config for me to help you troubleshoot


#14

I finally got it to work. Have a look at https://github.com/easink/hass.aioheos.media_player/issues/1


#15

I’ve followed those steps, but still have some issues getting this installed. However, it’s great that this is working for you - it just means I need to persevere!


#16

Since this component seems to exist and work, what has to happen to make it “official”?


#17

Just installed it and it seemed to work, but after a hass restart it stopped working. According to hass the HEOS is off which offcourse isn’t. I don’t see any errors …Any ideas?


#18

I agree with above please contribute to make official.
This is even more importanty now with Hassio since theyonly support official components.


#19

Hey guys, this is great!! Question, looks like it’s only intended to support a single speaker though?

Hi there.

I’m just beginning to use HASS. And I too would appreciate integration with HEOS, but I understand that it’s hard to do with the available API’s/documentation “made available” by HEOS.

What I encourage EVERYONE that wants to see this working do is: Write to HEOS. Go to the website, raise a ticket and request an API for 3rd parties to integrate with other products (like Sonos does). Once Denon/HEOS has done this, making the integration with HASS should be easy.
