MQTT Alarm Control Panel


The mqtt alarm panel platform enables the possibility to control MQTT capable alarm panels. The Alarm icon will change state after receiving a new state from state_topic. If these messages are published with RETAIN flag, the MQTT alarm panel will receive an instant state update after subscription and will start with the correct state. Otherwise, the initial state will be unknown.

The component will accept the following states from your Alarm Panel (in lower case):

  • disarmed
  • armed_home
  • armed_away
  • ‘armed_night’
  • pending
  • triggered

The component can control your Alarm Panel by publishing to the command_topic when a user interacts with the Home Assistant frontend.

Configuration

To enable this platform, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml:

# Example configuration.yaml entry

    command_topic: "home/alarm/set"
