A wrapper around the excellent HADotNet.Core REST api by @qJake with strongly typed Entity classes


  • .NET Standard 2.0 cross-platform library
  • DI-friendly initialization
  • Home Assistant entities represented by strongly typed C# classes
    • Strongly typed methods (TurnOn, TurnOff etc.)
    • Strongly typed attributes (climate.CurrentTemperature, mediaPlayer.IsMuted etc.)

Does NOT (yet?) include

  • Websockets or any real-time update strategy

Currently (partially) implemented HA domains

Example usage

// Initialize the HADotNet.Core clients
ClientFactory.Initialize("https://my-ha-instance.duckdns.org", "long-lived-access-token");

var entityClient = ClientFactory.GetClient<EntityClient>();
var statesClient = ClientFactory.GetClient<StatesClient>();

// Initialize an instance of the EntitiesService
var entitiesService = new EntitiesService(entityClient, statesClient);
Toggle a light
// Get all light entities
var lights = await entitiesService.GetEntities<Light>();

// Turn on all lights
await Task.WhenAll(lights.Select(light => light.TurnOn()));
Set the temperature of a climate entity
// Get a single climate entity
var climate = await entitiesService.GetEntity<Climate>("living_room"); // climate.living_room

Console.WriteLine($"Current target temperature: {climate.Temperature}");

await climate.SetTemperature(20);

Console.WriteLine($"New target temperature: {climate.Temperature}");
Explicitly sync an entity after 10 seconds
var light = await entitiesService.GetEntity<Light>("living_room"); // light.living_room


await light.Update();
