Govee Home Products / Dreamcolor LED strip

Bought this amazing led strip with very cool music control presets for my party room. Unfortunately, it doesn´t cooperate with the flux_led/magic home component.
Stranger is the bluetooth/wifi mixed mode: You can´t do all settings over wifi, you must have an bluetooth connection established to change, for example, the music control presets.

However, for HA, it would greatly help me to turn it on and off for the beginning.

I too would like to control Govee lights, is there a generic light strip Integration I can use? I just purchased the same thing…

If you use node red install Alexa Remote 2 once you get your account setup you have can use a node to control all alexa smart home devices including the Govee LED Strip.

Anyone, any ideas how to integrate new Govee LED TV Backlights ( with HA?

I accidentally bought a Govee light strip because it was cheap on Black Friday. I solved integration by using Alexa routines and a fake binary_sensor. Bit of a hack but works, here’s how:

  1. Create a fake light:
  - platform: template 
        friendly_name: "My Govee Light"
  1. Create a binary_sensor
  - platform: template
        friendly_name: "GoveeLightSensor"
        value_template: '{{ is_state("light.govee_light","on") }}'
        device_class: 'door'
  1. Connect your Govee account to Amazon Alexa via their skill
  2. Connect HA to Amazon Alexa via Nabu Casa (make sure event publishing is enabled! It’s an option in the integration UI)
  3. In Alexa, create Routines, which read the state of the govee_light_sensor (state sent from HA), and in turn controls the Govee Light.

OK, this is a long complex solution, it’s one-way, and am not particularly happy with it, but liveable until there’s proper integration.


@butako123 thank you for posting your solution. It’s king of workaround but i hope it just should work similarly with Goole Assistant.

I would also be interested in making this work with Google Assistant. Anyone has suggestions on such? I already have Google Assistant integrated, but not sure how to read from there into HA…

I have updated my Govee integration with some node-red magic and the help of @tetienne 's pull request.

Refer to that update here

I setup a fake template light that now has color temperature and a color wheel.

With node red I setup the flow as such so the light and all of its features are fully accessible like a real light.

If you need some help trying to implement like I did, feel free to ask otherwise use my idea, as its relativity easy to setup.

Glad to see you use my PR :smiley: I don’t use Node Red, can you explain why it’s usefule to redifined your ligh in node red?

Govee does not have a public api, however their LED strip is both cheap and high quality. The led strip is able to be controlled via Alexa so node red has a plugin called Alexa remote 2 which can access the smart home api. So by using node red when the brightness, color, or color temperature chages on the template light it sends that payload to the Alexa api to change the led stripe state. This in return makes a fully addressable light in home assistant!

That’s the first time I saw such configuration. That’s really clever :bulb:

Can you share your settings on template light and on node-red?

It is very sloppy code but sure

Keep in mind you will need to replace the template with the one in the pull request since his PR is not live yet.

Thank you for sharing!

But what do you mean by this?

Ok I found it but i can’t find the from this PR and how to intergrade it to my hassio
Any help would be appreciated!

I would like more info on all this too. Where is the file from the PR? Sorry I am not that familiar with GitHub.

And can we save this as a custom_component? Sounds like its suggested we replace the default file…

I just got one of these today too and need to know the same thing.

Did you make any progress?


so far i’m only able to turn on/off LED strip using Home Assistant Relay. I’m using and there is an addon with this component.
Govee google assistant integration is very limited, there is only optoon to on/off device (in last used mode), set brightnes and set static color.
As far is i knove Govee is going to extend GA integration capabilities in future.

That’s really all I need to do. Would you mind sharing your solution?

No problem :slight_smile:

  1. Add this custom addon repository to
  2. Install Assistant Relay Addon
  3. Setup addon using web interface - there is step by step wizzard.
  4. When addon is ready you will be able to send text commnads to GA eg. “turn on table light”
  5. Create rest command inside HA
  url: http://[hassio host name or ip]:3000/assistant
  method: POST
  content_type: 'application/json'
  payload: '{"command":"{{ command }}", "user":"[google email]"}'

then you can use later in automation like this:

    - service: rest_command.assistant_relay_command
        command: "turn {{state}} tv ambient light"

“tv ambient light” is the name of device inside GA/GH.
I even created a switch for that light:

      value_template: '{{ states("input_boolean.salon_tv_ambient_light") }}'
      friendly_name: 'TV ambient light'
        - service: rest_command.assistant_relay_command
            command: "turn on tv ambient light"
        - service: input_boolean.turn_on
          entity_id: input_boolean.salon_tv_ambient_light
        - service: rest_command.assistant_relay_command
            command: "turn off tv ambient light"
        - service: input_boolean.turn_off
          entity_id: input_boolean.salon_tv_ambient_light

There is one downside of this solution. So far i’m not able to synchronize states between HA and Google. If you turn on the device via Govee app or GA the state inside HA doesn’t change.

Maybe somebody knows a soulution for that case? :slight_smile:

Thank you, that’s great. I Already have it working with GA so this should be straightforward.

I’ll be having it turn on when the TV turns on but only when it’s not daytime.

Thanks again.
