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.

Home Assistant is an opensource home automation system which can integrate with a lot of different kind of systems, but it has no IHC support yet. You can integrate IHC with Home assistant using mqtt and the ihc mqtt gateway. But it is nice to have a more “native” integration where lights, sensors e.t.c are found automatically. This is what this post is about.

Yet another ihc soap client – this time for python. This is work in progress as I am trying to get this integrated into Home Assistant.

This is a library to make soap requests to the IHC controller from an esp8266. I am using this library in my DingSwitch project. It implements a limited set of the soap requests: authentication, get and set runtime values and notification.
