HTTPS support to the IHC Controller version 3 in Home Assistant

June 7, 2020

In an upcoming firmware update (to be released soon) for the IHC controller version 3, you will only be able to use a https connection to the soap API in the controller. This means the current version of Home Assistant will not be able to connect to the IHC controller. The current version can only use http.

Note: The https support is now included in HA version 0.112 and later, but only working with verison 3 of the controller
