homebridge-sonybraviatv

A home bridge plugin for Sony Bravia TVs based on Android TV. Currently it supports powering on and off TVs using a preshared key.

Installation

  1. Install homebridge using: npm install -g homebridge
  2. Install this plugin using: npm install -g homebridge-sonybraviatv
  3. Update your configuration file. See below for a sample.
  4. Set "Remote start" to ON in your Android TV Settings->Network->Remote Start
  5. Change "Authentication" to "Normal and Pre-Shared Key" in your Android Settings->Network->IP Control->Authentication
  6. Enter a "Pre-Shared Key" in your Android TV Settings->Network->IP control->Pre-Shared Key

Configuration

Enter the IP address of your television in the ipaddress field. On your TV go to Settings->Network->Home network->IP Control. Change Authentication to "Normal and Pre-Shared Key". Enter something for the Pre-Shared Key. Put that same string in the presharedkey field. If your TV requires Wake-on-Lan to power-on, enter your TV MAC address in the macaddress field.

Configuration sample:

"accessories": [
   {
   "accessory": "SonyBraviaTV",
   "name": "My TV Name",
   "ipaddress": "YOUR TV IP ADDRESS HERE",
   "presharedkey": "YOUR PRESHARED KEY HERE"
 }
   ]

NOTE: Some Sony Bravia TVs require Wake-on-Lan to power on. If your TV is one of these, then you will need to add the macaddress field to your configuration as shown below.

"accessories": [
    {
    "accessory": "SonyBraviaTV",
    "name": "My TV Name",
    "macaddress": "01:02:03:04:05:06",
    "ipaddress": "YOUR TV IP ADDRESS HERE",
    "presharedkey": "YOUR PRESHARED KEY HERE"
  }
    ]

NOTE: If you wish to use the state of your TV as a trigger for automation, the plugin must regularly update it. To achieve this, polling must be enabled.

"accessories": [
    {
    "accessory": "SonyBraviaTV",
    "name": "My TV Name",
    "macaddress": "01:02:03:04:05:06",
    "ipaddress": "YOUR TV IP ADDRESS HERE",
    "presharedkey": "YOUR PRESHARED KEY HERE",
    "polling": true,
    "interval": 1
  }
    ]
