Today I checked my home-assistant.log and found a 20 something warnings of these kinds:
WARNING (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.http.ban] Login attempt or request with invalid authentication from 66.249.82.x
x being 3 different digits.
Checking the IP Information it seems like these IP addresses are owned by Google.
Some day ago I enabled the new Google Home component, is this related or just a coincident?
I am on 0.88.2.
Yes, that is a similar range that makes API calls to do Google Assistant functions. Is the API key you supplied to it wrong?
Probably, disable the component for a few days to see if it goes away. If it does, you’ll know.
I haven’t supplied any API keys to set up the Google Home component, it is not specified in the documentation.
Sorry, meant Google Assistant, not Google Home.
GA exposes your HA to allow Google to send it commands.
The warnings just appeared that day, strange.
Anyway I have now removed the configuration for the Google Home in HA, wanted to use it for the Bluetooth presence detection, but it just went on populating my known_devices.yaml, so disabled it after 400+ devices found…
