Hi everyone!

Today, I'm happy to release Gladys Assistant 4.12 with a lots of new features.

What's new in Gladys Assistant 4.12?

HomeKit support

Gladys is now officialy compatible with HomeKit, meaning that you can control all your Gladys devices on your Apple devices, and use Siri.

HomeKit integration Gladys Assistant

For now we only supports 3 types of devices:

  • Light bulb (On/Off, color, temperature et brightness)
  • Switch (On/Off)
  • Temperature sensor

Additionnal compatibilities will be added on request on the forum.

To connect your Gladys devices to HomeKit, follow our documentation!

A new type of device is now available in the MQTT integration: Thermostat 🚀

Thermostat control in Gladys

You can now easily control the temperature in your house, and also automate this in scenes.

French users: Watch your electricity consumption with Zigbee Lixee TIC

For users in France, we now supports the Lixee TIC sensor, a device that can be plugged into the Linky smart electric meter to watch in live how much power is your house using.

The device is simply plugged into your Linky electric meter:

It connects to Gladys using the Zigbee2mqtt integration, and allows you to see the real-time power consumption of your house.

How to upgrade?

If you installed Gladys with the official Raspberry Pi OS image, your instance will update automatically in the coming hours. It can take up to 24 hours, don't panic.

If you installed Gladys with Docker, make sure you are using Watchtower. See the documentation.

With Watchtower, Gladys will update automatically.
