- Go to the (lower) ‘Settings’-icon (☰) and choose ‘Preferences’.
- Choose ‘System’ then ‘Networking’ and your IP address will be shown.
You have to add the following to your configuration.yaml file:
# Minimal configuration.yaml entry climate: - platform: plugwise password: YOUR_SHORT_IP host: YOUR_SMILE_LOCAL_IP
Please note: for a legacy Anna (firmware 1.8.x) an additional line is required, see below, this line is not needed for a more recent Anna (firmware 3.1.x).
Your Smile ID (located on the bottom of the Smile, not the Anna).
The IP address of your Smile.
The name of your thermostat, i.e., “Anna”.
Should you ever need to change this, you can.
When having a custom setup, you can change the port number.
Indicate that the Anna is a legacy unit
If you want to adjust the lower boundary, the integration will not allow temperatures below the set value.
If you want to adjust the upper boundary, the integration will not allow temperatures above the set value.

Available options include
off. The meaning of
auto is that a schedule is active and the thermostat will change presets accordingly. The meaning of
off is that there is no schedule active, i.e., the active preset or manually set temperature is to be used to control the climate of your house or rooms.
The last schedule that was active is determined the same way long-tapping the top of Anna works.
# Example script change the temperature script: anna_reactive_last_schedule: sequence: - service: climate.set_hvac_mode data: hvac_mode: auto
Changing the active schedule can be done, though not easily:
- Deactivate the schedule (press the power button on the UI-card).
- Look up the available schemas in the
- Change the attribute
active_schemato the actual name of your schema as available from the above attribute or your Plugwise App.
- Activate the schedule (press the calendar button on the UI-card).
