But… I’m reluctant just to turn them all off. It’s fun seeing some new devices in the area, but I too get slammed by devices like Skylink Motion Sensors. After a day, I had 30-40 “new” Skylinks appear in Home Assistant. I whack most of them but they reappear.
So my question is not so much how to I disable everything but what I want, but more “has anyone come up with an architectural approach to keep ‘everything’ enabled, but only route what I want to Home Assistant?”
I’m thinking I could easily send all of the RTL_433toMQTT packets to a second broker, catch them all there, the with some simple python, bounce the packets that I want to keep over to Home Assistant…
I’d have to turn off auto-discovery, but I’m OK with manual configuration of sensors in HA.
I’m conflicted. It’s fun to see all of the 433MHz stuff around me, I just don’t want them flowing in Home Assistant and am wondering if someone else has solved this more elegantly?
