[Android] pilight android 4.1+ UPDATED 5/5/15
android application shamelessly called


Used minimum sdk is api 16 so only for android 4.1+.
Some screenshots:

  • switches, dimmers, weather, relays and screens (uhh, everything I think)
  • ssdp (you don't have to enter a IP adress anymore, needs pilight 3.0 or development branch!!)
  • notifications (silent, updates when an update comes in. So, you can always monitor your home temperature in the notification centre!)
  • Tasker action support: Control you devices through Tasker actions!
  • Grid- and Listview
  • Englisch, German and Dutch localized.

Default behaviour is a running service connected to the deamon at all time. Stopped when leaving your home network, started again when coming home. You'll have a notification showing the last update of the config.
This behaviour can be disabled in the settings but I recommend to keep it on. It hardly takes any battery (try BetterBatteryStats to show this).
Hopefully, if pilight supports doorbels, this can be turned into a notification with sound Smile Bit geeky but hey, isn't this pilight?!

The app uses Gabrielle Mariotti's card library found here:
Apps sources can be found here:

Anyway, as said, android 4.1+ only (I wanted to use the notifications per se in the form it is and the used cards library is 4.0+. I didn't try to make it 2.3+ because with AndPiLi and Luminious there are alternatives already)

on the Play Store. For free obviously Smile

Meloen, thanks for the screenshots!
IcedEarth, thanks for the German translations!
Why don't you put it on github, this way more people can contribute to the app

Quote:Hopefully I can find some time during my working trip to clean up the code and add the obligatory GPL headers. The app uses the card library found here:
In time I will add the sources for my app on github too (very outdated version is available but it doesn't represent the current app at all)
Very outdated source if you are really interested, incomplete and appropriate licence headers missing:

And done, open sourced my app:

Hi Zatta,

Just installed the alpha version on my android 4.1.1 phone.
When running, it says Connecting, then it dosn't connect. I click Okay and it says service destroyed...

Too bad, I am very interested in your App.

Will try to install on my 7" tablet later..
When i manage to create screenshots I'll send them to you.

Best regards,

First, thanks for your interest and response.

Then, are you sure your version of pilight has ssdp support? And did you try to restart the pilight-daemon?

If both answers are a yes, I'll try to make a new version with full debugging enabled. I can't promise it because I'm still abroad without a reliable internet connection and I'm very occupied by my job atm.

I installed pilight with apt-get. Don't know if there is any ssdp support...

Don't know if i restarted the deamon, perhaps i should try again.

Will get the 7" now and try and make screendumps if i can connect.

Best Regards,


Hi Zatta,

Just tried again. No connection, also not after restart.
Won't install on my 7"tablet. Guess Android is too old :-(

Nice looking app! Connected automatically to my pilight development build. I also like the app icon. Attached some screenshots made on a 7" 1024*600 tablet.

@curlymo, can you tell us if the apt-get repo has ssdp support?

@Fred, you can check your android version under "instellingen-over de tablet", it really should be 4.1 or higher.

@meloen, thanks for the screenshots. Would you mind making some in portrait as well? And can I use them for the play store?
Thanks for your compliment, that icon is great hea, did you notice the subtle changes in the notification bar when you loose connection/leave your home network Smile
