BT Home Hub Presence


(DZMM) #1

Hi

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 https://home-assistant.io/components/device_tracker.bt_home_hub_5/ 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.
