HomePod Mini Temperature/Humidity Sensor to HA

Latest news out today was Apple is going to implement the long dormant temperature and humidity sensor in the HomePod Mini, and is available now on the 16.3 beta.

And get a chance to test this out yet, and most importantly if it can be monitored in HA? I have mine in an outdoor enclosed environment and it would be great if I can tap into it.

It’s also included in the new HomePod second generation. Would be great if we could add the sensors to HA.

I am looking forward to seeing how to get these sensors into HA as well. I have 3 HomePod Minis and they are all now reporting temperature and humidity. It would be great to see that information in HA.

I also hope to be able to integrate these sensors into HA.

16.3 got released today; my HomePod updated this evening.

Siri will now give me the temperature (in the room with the pod in).
I’m off to find if I can see anything from HA…

If something has to be added to the integration it would be nice to know, please.

Would be nice if HA detected HomePods as such. All of mine were detected as an Apple TV.

Just got the 16.3 update and shiny new temp/humid sensors are in homekit now:) Any updates on how to get it into the Home Assistant?

Nothing has been officially exposed through the HomeKit extension as an entity for temp and humidity.

Although I am not sure if it’s Apple not sending it through API or if it’s HA Core component that can’t read it yet.

pyatv seems like not really delivering a solution for getting those values yet.

But I don’t know enough about how the integrations work to add these.

IMO these devices shouldn’t be shown as Apple TV in HA, but I understand (mostly) why they are at the moment.
