In development: LG SmartThinQ component



After reboot I had that error, what can I do?

Error while setting up platform smartthinq_hvac

Because korean smartthinq application has been updated can’t change device name for english.
HA can’t understand korean, so i updated my component that have to use name config.
If you add name config under the platform config, it will work.
You can see readme. I updated it


@wkd8176 Tks ! Resolved that issue but now I had others :expressionless:

No had errors in DEV-INFO but no have any options . See image


Your ac has different swing option with mine.
You have to change and for your model.
mine is made for only korean medel(because i don’t have global model)


What country are you from?


@subzero79 Portugal


I am in Australia. What model number they sell there ? I can send you my adapter wideq, I disabled swing because my model has vertical and horizontal so it would be to much work to implement that. The climate component doesn’t have an option for secondary swing. I’ve added power consumption as an attribute to the ac also.



I have 3 Units:

2 x PM09SP
1 x PM12SP

When I run appear that information:
xxxx: AC_1 (AC RAC_056905_PT)
xxxx: AC_2 (AC RAC_056905_PT)
xxxx: AC_3 (AC RAC_056905_PT)

If possible share your files , with @samps file all options appear,
Power consumption its a nice idea!



I still don’t have it in production yet coz my AC died, i am claiming warranty and needs a new board apparently



Without any sucess.

by the way the attribute instant power_state are the power consumption? Only reported zero consumption “instant_power_state: 0”


This is gonna be difficult to implement officially in ha, the ac unit looks similar but options change a lot apparently. Did you edit the country code ?

I forgot that line it was for catching the outgoing post.

The instant power option might also be different. I added this by setting mitm proxy and adding a profile in my phone so I could see all the requests made from the app in plain.


so which fork is the best to use for the LG air conditioner? There are so many that I’m confused about which to use, i’m still on the original one, is there any feature or stability advantage of moving?


I haven’t been able to follow every detail, but I am still using my (original) code and it’s working great for me. If anyone has fixes or updates to the original AC functionality, I would love to merge them back into the main repo.


thanks for the component, for the most part it works great however I saw some screenshots above that have more functionality.

I still think HA has a way to go handling AC units as opposed to the thermostat like controls it has, i’d be keen to see how you all are managing this on the frontend, i’m using the climate card however it doesn’t work very well, it seems that the HA devs dont understand there is an on/off state to air conditioning units


Hi @sharkpunch,
Did you have any luck getting the LG SmartThinQ component to work?
I’m from Aus too - I did the COUNTRY and LANGUAGE update as specified by @Aephir, but when I go to the URL and then log in, the next page I get says “Page not found error”



Check the link, you are redirected to. The link should contain both tokens needded.

For me - the script found the washer, but still Hassio shows unknown on all sensors :frowning:

 2019-01-17 17:40:17 WARNING (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.sensor] Platform smartthinq_washer not ready yet. Retrying in 90 seconds.

Are there any plans on this becoming an official component? Seems like the API is available upon registration. I wrote a request for this component few days ago and now just stumbled upon this page. Is this currently a working component, even with fridges? I’m planning on buying more LG related SmartThinkQ products to the home. Would love to see it work seamlessly with

LG Smart ThinQ - Component

Which repo would you guys recommend to use for a US washer and dryer?


Can this work when using HomeAssistant in a Docker ?
