So there is a freely pogrammable heating controller called UVR1611 by Technische Alternative. Recently I wanted to have its data displayed in Home Assistant (already accomplished that once via “UVR1611 Data Logger”). For that you need either the BLNET device or the CLI, in this case some scripts have been developed to assist integrating UVR data via a BLNET device.
For you as a home assistant user, add this folder in to your
custom_components folder (resulting in
And add these lines to your
# UVR1611 Data blnet: resource: your_blnet_address password: optional_blnet_password can_node: optional_can_bus_node
At the digital switches, is displayed if mode of digital output is set to “AUTO”, else showing [mdi:toggle-switch] / [mdi:toggle-switch-off]
If you are interested in developing that further feel free to contribute to either this component or the backend python script pyblnet.
EDIT: There was a major overhaul under the hood. Now customization is fully supported and digital outputs of the UVR1611 can be controlled. Yet from then on you have to create the groups yourself.
UPDATE: Since the integration layout in homeassistant changed a lot lately all files previously thought to be seperate are now included in one single blnet “package”. Now you only have to move one folder to your custom_components directory and you’re done! The description above was changed accordingly.
