Kodi TV Kids Police

Does anyone think this could be done? Could I time how much TV has been watched, seeing as Kodi sends playing updates to HA? Can I then send a STOP command back somehow?

You can create a history stats sensor to time how long the TV has been on today and trigger off that:

And yes all media players have a stop service.

Great that looks a good start. Does Kodi send anything about what its playing? Music/TV/Film? Genre and so on?

These are the attributes of my currently playing movie:

volume_level: 1
is_volume_muted: false
imdb: tt20859464
tmdb: '983282'

media_content_type: movie  ### <--- This what you are after?

media_position: 1849

That looks good, just a shame it doesn’t send the genre of the TV that’s being watched, otherwise it would block me watching too much TV as well haha. Need to filter for “kids” somehow. I suppose it’d be an imdb lookup then?

This seems to work, in that it gives you how many hours of TV have been watched.

  - platform: history_stats
    name: TV ON today
    entity_id: media_player.server
    state: "playing"
    type: time
    start: "{{ today_at() }}"
    end: "{{ now() }}"

Stops anyone not just the kids watching too much telly.
