The integration supports Grocy version 3.2 and above.

At least Home Assistant version 2021.12 is required for the integration from v4.3.3 and above.

You have to have the Grocy software already installed and running, this integration only communicates with an existing installation of Grocy. You can install the software with the Grocy add-on or another installation method, found at Grocy website.

Adding the integration

First steps for Grocy add-on

The configuration is slightly different for those who use the official Grocy add-on from the add-on store.

  1. If you haven't already done so, install Grocy from the add-on store.
  2. In the 'Configuration' section of the add-on config, input 9192 in the Network port field - see screenshot. Save your changes and restart the add-on.
  3. Now continue with the instructions below.

Instructions for both installation methods

  1. Install HACS, if you haven't already done so.
  2. In Home Assistant go to HACS > Integrations. Search for the "Grocy custom component" repository by clicking the "Explore & download repositories" button in the bottom right corner.
  3. In the bottom right corner click "Download the repository with HACS". Click "Download". Optional: for latest features and fixes choose "Show beta versions".
  4. Restart Home Assistant as instructed by HACS.
  5. Install the Grocy integration. Fill out the information according to this instruction.
  6. Before integration version v4.3.3, now restart Home Assistant again (with later versions you can skip this step).
  7. You will now have a new integration for Grocy. All entities are disabled from start, manually enable the entities you want to use.

Future integration updates will appear automatically within Home Assistant via HACS.


All entities are disabled from the start. You have to manually enable the entities you want to use in Home Assistant. You get a sensor each for chores, meal plan, shopping list, stock, tasks and batteries. You get a binary sensor each for overdue, expired, expiring and missing products and for overdue tasks, overdue chores and overdue batteries.

Integration configuration


The Grocy url should be in the form below (start with http:// or https://) and point to your Grocy instance. If you use a SSL certificate you should have https and also check the "Verify SSL Certificate" box. Do not enter a port in the url field. Subdomains are also supported, fill out the full url in the field.

API key

Go to your Grocy instance. Navigate via the wrench icon in the top right corner to "Manage API keys" and add a new API key. Copy and paste the generated key.


It should work with for example a Duck DNS address as well, but you still have to access it via a port, and the above instructions for the url still apply.

  • If you have configured the Grocy add-on as described, use port 9192 (without https). Either be sure the port is open in your router or use your internal Home Assistant address.
  • If you have configured an external Grocy instance and not sure, use port 80 for http or port 443 for https. Unless you have set a custom port for Grocy.
