Netatmo webhook based event cookbook

To make it easier for everyone I want this thread to become a collection of automations based on the webhook based Netatmo event. Feel free to contribute your automation snippets for others to use. I also try to collect links across the forum and other resources on this topic.

For a more recent implementation see this post by @gerard33.

Original post

Create some input_boolean entities:

# Netatmo motion detection
netatmo_motion_human:
 name: Netatmo detected a person
 initial: off
 icon: mdi:motion-sensor
netatmo_motion_vehicle:
 name: Netatmo detected a car
 initial: off
 icon: mdi:car
netatmo_motion_animal:
 name: Netatmo detected an animal
 initial: off
 icon: mdi:dog

Add binary_sensor templates which use the state of the input_boolean entities:

# Netatmo camera presence detection
- platform: template
  sensors:
    netatmo_motion_human:
      friendly_name: "Netatmo beweging persoon"
      device_class: motion
      value_template: >-
        {{ is_state('input_boolean.netatmo_motion_human', 'on') }}
    netatmo_motion_vehicle:
      friendly_name: "Netatmo beweging auto"
      device_class: motion
      value_template: >-
        {{ is_state('input_boolean.netatmo_motion_vehicle', 'on') }}
    netatmo_motion_animal:
      friendly_name: "Netatmo beweging dier"
      device_class: motion
      value_template: >-
        {{ is_state('input_boolean.netatmo_motion_animal', 'on') }}

Use automations to use the new triggers to switch the input_booleans on and turn them off after 2 minutes (you can of course change this delay):

- alias: input_boolean to on if Netatmo camera detects a person
  trigger:
    - platform: event
      event_type: netatmo_event
      event_data:
        type: human
  action:
    - service: input_boolean.turn_on
      entity_id: input_boolean.netatmo_motion_human
    - delay: '00:02:00'
    - service: input_boolean.turn_off
      entity_id: input_boolean.netatmo_motion_human
- alias: input_boolean to on if Netatmo camera detects a vehicle
  trigger:
    - platform: event
      event_type: netatmo_event
      event_data:
        type: vehicle
  action:
    - service: input_boolean.turn_on
      entity_id: input_boolean.netatmo_motion_vehicle
    - delay: '00:02:00'
    - service: input_boolean.turn_off
      entity_id: input_boolean.netatmo_motion_vehicle
- alias: input_boolean to on if Netatmo camera detects an animal
  trigger:
    - platform: event
      event_type: netatmo_event
      event_data:
        type: animal
  action:
    - service: input_boolean.turn_on
      entity_id: input_boolean.netatmo_motion_animal
    - delay: '00:02:00'
    - service: input_boolean.turn_off
      entity_id: input_boolean.netatmo_motion_animal

This is reserved for later use.

On request I’ll share here how I use the Netatmo Welcome as a presence detection device.
First, I created a virtual device tracker in the known_devices.yaml file. This I then linked to a person in HA.

The following Node Red flow marks the virtual device “home” if that person is seen by the camera.

[{"id":"df805c17.53f41","type":"server-events","z":"19282270.eeccbe","name":"Netatmo event","server":"90595526.d9ab18","event_type":"netatmo_event","exposeToHomeAssistant":false,"haConfig":[{"property":"name","value":""},{"property":"icon","value":""}],"x":120,"y":1120,"wires":[["28cc6d97.440d62"]],"icon":"font-awesome/fa-video-camera"},{"id":"28cc6d97.440d62","type":"switch","z":"19282270.eeccbe","name":"Persoon check","property":"payload.event.data.name","propertyType":"msg","rules":[{"t":"eq","v":"Jasper","vt":"str"},{"t":"eq","v":"Selina","vt":"str"}],"checkall":"true","repair":false,"outputs":2,"x":330,"y":1100,"wires":[["2b60d8b7.34bed8","5034ea97.60bf14"],["6a5bc39e.d0041c","dad64881.d992b8"]]},{"id":"2b60d8b7.34bed8","type":"api-call-service","z":"19282270.eeccbe","name":"Markeer virtual_jasper thuis","server":"90595526.d9ab18","version":1,"debugenabled":false,"service_domain":"device_tracker","service":"see","entityId":"","data":"{\"dev_id\":\"virtual_jasper\",\"location_name\":\"home\"}","dataType":"json","mergecontext":"","output_location":"","output_location_type":"none","mustacheAltTags":false,"x":620,"y":1080,"wires":[[]]},{"id":"90595526.d9ab18","type":"server","z":"","name":"Home Assistant","addon":true}]

Then I also use an automation to mark the virtual device away when my phone changes to “not home”.

Hope this could be inspiring for anybody.

@repjas

Could you share all your config regarding netatmo :
Automations if any
The configuration for the virtual device
Etc?

I also use node red and want to do the same.
Thanks in advance

I have added this in my known_devices.yaml:

virtual_jasper:
  name: Netatmo Jasper
  track: true

Then add in the UI the virtual Netatmo device as a tracker to a person.

Then when Netatmo sees Jasper (using the Node Red flow I shared above), the virtual_jasper device will be marked home. This then marks the Person Jasper home.

Finally you will need to make a simple automation (I used Node Red) that will mark the virtual_jasper device away when your phone (or other device tracker) leaves the area. You can use the service device_tracker.see for this.

Hello, someone could help me to translate the node red flow into an automation.yaml??
Tks a lot,
Matteo

Hello, thanks cgtobi for the helpful summary. I have a technical question about netatmo_event. Does this event function on its own, for example as a trigger (after addition) to automation? Or is it necessary to first “activate” netatmo_event by calling “netatmo register webhook” in the developer tools?

As long as the webhook is not banned for your account on the Netatmo dev portal the integration should register the webhook automatically as long as the requirements are fulfilled. So ideally once the integration is set up you should be able to use the event right away.

Hmm. I started with the webhook ok tag on the dev.netatmo app tab, after which I searched for what it was and found a mention of the possibility of using netatmo_event (which is a good added value for the already good netatmo camera in HA). When nothing happened after two days, I run “register netatmo webhook” in the developer tools, after which the automation containing netatmo_event trigger started working for me.

Hi, I want to create an automation so when I am in home the Netatmo Camara sets me up as in Home. I though the easiest way will be when I am wifi connected but I do not know how to call the service “set_persons_home”. Can someone assist me with this automatitation. I think it is also useful for the Netatmo community. Thank you!

  alias: Antonio en Casa Wifi
  description: ''
  trigger:
  - platform: state
    entity_id: sensor.kb2003_conexion_wifi
    to: WIFI_xxx
  condition: []
  action:
  - service: set_persons_home
    device_id: xxxxxxxx
    domain: netatmo
    entity_id: camera.netatmo_xxx
    value_template: '{{ trigger.event.data[''data''][''name''] == ''Antonio'' }}'
  mode: single

This will evaluate to trueand netatmo.set_persons_home is expecting a list of names. If you want to check if the the trigger contains “Antonio” you have to put that into the condition and the pass the name to the netatmo.set_persons_home service.

All of the code from this post can be changed since HA 2021.5 with the code below.
Less code and all in one file.

@gerard33 : Thanks you very much!

Do you think there is a solution to get a secondary info into this sensor which camera has detected the motion?

Okay, a vehicle in the backyard should be very rare.

In the event data there is a camera_id / device_id present which is the MAC address of the camera, so you can use that in the trigger part to distinguish the cameras.
Then you can make sure there is actually no car in your backyard :wink:

Thank you!! Is it possible to create an snapshot when an event is triggered (person, movement…) and send the thrumbail through a notification to my phone? The service “camera.snapshot” is not working and I do not know how to send the native snapshot took by my netatmo inhome camera.

Your help will be highly appreciated!
