Hive Integration

Tried to use Alexa through node red to control it but that doesnt seem to be working either. I guess their skill has broken too.

Actually it does look like its still working just takes a few minutes to update, might be able to use that as a work around.

So hopefully just a matter of figuring out the auth method…

Hi, I’m no expert but I have been boosting my hive heating via sh script for a while now and when I noticed that hive integration no longer worked this morning I realised my boost script did still work. I then have just tweaked the url I’m posting to turn on my hive light and it worked. I’ll post as much as I can and answer any questions. Hope it helps…

Interesting, @bradderz… you are using cognito and the pyhiveapi currently uses global
I’ve just changed my version of pyhiveapi to see if it works …

@bradderz @rendili
Fix to get this working is to change the following in pyhiveapi:

 HIVE_API.urls.global_login = ""

Change the above to:

 HIVE_API.urls.global_login = ""

I can confirm this gets the HA Hive integration going again, so we just need this change made in pyhiveapi

Nice one guys, I will test on my system later tonight then release a new pyhiveapi version with the change. Will need to then create a PR with the updated version, this could take a while.

I’ve changed the url to incognito in my version of in my custom_components folder and also installed pyhiveapi via pip3 and changed the url in that file in site-packages but still don’t get my hive devices. Any advice what I might be doing wrong please?

@bradderz As a hack on mine … i have edited the file within custom_components/hive

“”“from pyhiveapi import Pyhiveapi”"" ---- Original line
from .pyhiveapi import Pyhiveapi

I have a copy of the pyhiveapi file in the custom_components/hive directory
The copy of the pyhiveapi file has the changes i mentioned in previous post for the url with cognito in.

Once you have made the changes remember to restart hass to reload the integrations… lovelace now showing the climate devices

Hi. I did exactly the same thing but whenever I restart HA I get a text from Hive with a verification code and still nothing works. Suggests some sort of 2FA in play?

hmm, possibly i haven’t got any 2fa on my account (didn’t know you could). Not sure what to suggest :no_mouth:

I tried to enable Hive 2FA a while back and it broke HA integration so I needed to disable it again. I’ve now got Hive and HA working again - I just had to rename the folder to pyhiveapi rather than pyhive in custom_component folder.

Yep, I had 2FA enabled on my account. Disabled through the Hive app, restarted HA and all works! Thanks all. Now just need to wait for the “official” fix.

Thanks @bradderz and @MagicalTrev89 that custom component hack has got me back online for now :grin: :clap: :clap: :+1:

Fix is up. Thanks a lot guys, everything is back online now.

Hi All,

I have made the URL change and updated the custom component to use the new version. This should be available in HACs as version 2020.0

Will look at doing a PR to add this into home assistant core code



Any advice for running HA in a docker instance? I’ve editted /usr/local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/pyhiveapi/ and changed URL to “cognito” but no dice…

@splendid Home assistant does use the standard site-packages installed within python its uses its own which are store in the home assistant config folder. the pyhiveapi library will need changing there

Thanks @Khole, but I’m struggling to find where you mean?

Im not familiar with the docker stuff and where HA stores it packages I know on standalone build it is in the home assistant configuration folder.
