Important notice

If you are using Home Assistant via HTTPS, you need to specify port https for Plex and have Plex available on https connection with a valid and working certificate.


  • Install Plex Meets Home Assistant from HACS.
  • Reload browser, clear cache as usual
  • Create a new Home Assistant tab, turn on panel mode
  • Add a card by clicking Add Card in your lovelace edit mode and finding "Custom: Plex Meets Home Assistant"


You can use UI to configure your card which will automatically load up your libraries and entities. If you wish, you can use card code to configure everything manually. See Detailed Configuration if you wish to see a lot more information about every property of the card.

Supported target devices are all entities from integrations Android TV, Kodi, Google Cast and any other Plex player available for casting through Plex web interface.

Regarding "all other plex players" without entities

In order for devices which do not have entities to be detected, they need to have plex app running when configuring the card or trying to play content.

If you are trying to play content on a local device from a remote Plex server or trying to play local Plex content on a remote device, you need to configure identifier and server for this device. This can only be done manually through card code configuration. See Detailed Configuration - All other plex clients. You can still use UI to edit anything else except entities while manually using plexPlayer key in entities.
