Addons and/or plugins can be installed to Node Red to add functionality. In Node Red they are called palettes. To install a palette, go to the menu in the upper right corner (the hamburger, 3 little horizontal lines), select Manage palette, then Install. You can search for a palette by name, or you can install a palette by pasting the URL of the palette into the Install tab.

Add this palette to connect to Home Assistant. (Requires Home Assistant to be installed and running, and HACS to be installed in Home Assistant.) For more information, see the Home Assistant page.
