To get started, open the device controls on your device. It will depend on the device manufacturer and Android version where you'll find them, some common places are: in the quick settings panel, in the notification drawer, or in the power menu. Tap on "Add Controls" and choose the Home Assistant app. All domains listed below will be available to get added to the device controls panel. Tapping on a tile will either turn it on or off. Certain domains will also allow you to increase or decrease the range by sliding your finger back and forth on the tile.

On Android 11, you can use added controls when your device is locked.
On Android 12, you cannot use added controls when your device is locked.
On Android 13, you can control the use of added controls when your device is locked. First, make sure you've enabled the option to use device controls when locked in the system settings (Settings app > Display > Lock screen). Now you can use added controls when your device is locked! If you want to change the setting for specific controls or entities, open Home Assistant and go to Settings > Companion app > Manage Device Controls.
