BT Home Hub Presence


Has anyone cracked using the BT Home Hub to provide presence detection? I would love to be able to use this to e.g. note when guest devices are in the house to suspend some routines i.e. my brother-in-law has come to stay.

Home Assistant have cracked this so it is ‘possible’.

BT are the largest ISP in the UK by far, so there’ll be lots of users interested in this.


you haven’t got a PC running anywhere else have you?

Do you mean a PC that’s always on? Yes, I have an unraid server that’s on 247 with some w10 VMs always on.

Have a read

Works great for me.
