bravia2mqtt

A bridge between Sony Bravia Smart TVs and MQTT.

NPM Version GitHub license

bravia2mqtt is a Node.js application that links Sony Bravia smart TVs to an MQTT broker. It is designed to be used to integrate these devices into a home automation system.

Getting Started

bravia2mqtt is distributed through NPM:

npm install -g bravia2mqtt
 
# or, if you prefer: 
yarn global add bravia2mqtt

Running it is likewise easy:

bravia2mqtt                      # if your MQTT broker is running on localhost 
bravia2mqtt -b mqtt://<hostname> # if your broker is running elsewhere 
bravia2mqtt --help               # to see the full usage documentation 

Topics and Payloads

This app is intended to conform to the mqtt-smarthome architecture. Below is a description of the topics used.

Status updates

These topics are published as update notifications are received from the TV.

Topic Value
bravia:<id>/status/isOn The current power status as a boolean
bravia:<id>/status/volume The current volume level as an integer
bravia:<id>/status/isMuted The current audio mute status as a boolean
bravia:<id>/status/channel The current channel as a string of the form <channel>.<subchannel>
bravia:<id>/status/input The currently selected input as a string (eg. component1, hdmi3)
bravia:<id>/status/isPictureMuted The current video mute status as a boolean
bravia:<id>/status/isPipEnabled The current state of the PIP display as a boolean
