2Air Quality in Home Assistant

I recently wrote about how to show bin col­lec­tion inform­a­tion in Home Assist­ant, and my next pro­ject was to pull some air qual­ity inform­a­tion. For­tu­nately I have a ‘Tado’ account which meant I could pull this inform­a­tion from their API using the fol­low­ing code

Updated 20-Dec-2021

This was updated to tweak an issue where home assist­ant con­verts the text value “none” into “unknown”.

Much of the inform­a­tion for this was taken from a thread on the home assist­ant for­ums, but I was able to add pol­lu­tion as well as pol­len inform­a­tion, and I also had to tweak the code to resolve an issue with “none” being treated as “unknown” rather than as a string of text. Lots of cred­it to Drillbit on the for­ums though.

Tado account details

  • You will need some inform­a­tion for your Tado account
  • Vis­it https://my.tado.com/api/v2/me?username=you@emailaddress.tld&password=yourpassword
  • Near the top of the out­put you need the numer­ic ID that is lis­ted under homes: 0: id:
  • Next, go to https://www.latlong.net/ and loc­ate your home and make a note of the lat­it­ude and longitude
  • Next vis­it https://acme.tado.com/v1/homes/your-home-ID/airComfort?latitude=12.34&longitude=12.34&username=your@email&password=your-pass­word to make sure it loads

Code for home assistant

  • Add the fol­low­ing code to your configuration.yaml

stavo seguendo la tua guida. Ti risulta che la stringa di tado fun­zioni ancora? per­chè mi restituisce errore {“message”:“User is not author­ized to access this resource with an expli­cit deny”} oppure ins­er­en­dola in ver­sione codice yaml mi restituisce {“message”:“Token di autenticazione man­cante”} . Grazie

Hi Fla­vio

Yes, this is still work­ing for me.
My URL is https://acme.tado.com/v1/homes/123456/airComfort?latitude=11.11&longitude=11.11&username=me@myemail.com&password=mypassword

Obvi­ously I’ve removed the home ID, lat­it­ude, lon­git­ude, email address, and pass­word I use. But if you get those right then it should load fine

Have you double checked your email address and pass­word? Have you checked your home ID at https://my.tado.com/api/v2/me?username=you@emailaddress.tld&password=yourpassword

I don’t know if the Tado sys­tem is dif­fer­ent out­side of the UK — maybe they don’t have data for lat­it­ude and lon­git­ude where you are? Do you get air qual­ity data in your Tado app when you’re logged into your account?
