wwlln integration displays lightning strike information from the
World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN).
Entities are generated, updated and removed automatically with each update
from the feed. Each entity defines latitude and longitude and will be shown
on the default map automatically, or on a map card by defining the source
wwlln. The distance (in kilometers or miles, depending on your unit system)
is available as the state of each entity.
New data is fetched every 10 minutes. Because data from the WWLLN may vary in terms
of how real-time it is, the default
window parameter is set to 1 hour to ensure that as
many strikes are caught as possible.
To retrieve data from the WWLLN, edit your
configuration.yaml file manually or use the “Integrations” feature in the GUI, you find it under Configurations - Integrations.
To manually add the component, add the following to your
The latitude you want to monitor; defaults to the value defined in
The longitude you want to monitor; defaults to the value defined in

The amount of time before now for which strikes should be considered “active” and shown in the UI. Note that a window of less than 1 hour may cause Home Assistant to miss events.
The following state attributes are available for each entity in addition to the standard ones:
|latitude||Latitude of the lightning strike.|
|longitude||Longitude of the lightning strike.|
|external_id||The external ID used in the feed to identify the lightning strike in the feed.|
|publication_date||Date and time when this event occurred.|
