To enable APRS tracking in Home Assistant, add the following section to
# Example configuration.yaml entry device_tracker: - platform: aprs username: FO0BAR callsigns: - 'XX0FOO*' - 'YY0BAR-1'
(string)(Required)Your callsign. This is used to connect to the host.
(string)(Optional)Your APRS password. This will verify the connection.
Default value: -1
(list)(Required)A list of callsigns you wish to track. Wildcard `*` is allowed. Any callsigns that match will be added as devices.
(string)(Optional)The APRS server to connect to.
Default value: rotate.aprs2.net
(float)(Optional)The number of seconds to wait to connect to the APRS-IS network before giving up.
Default value: 30.0
Verified connections are only required to send data to the APRS-IS network, which the
aprs platform does not yet do.
However, you are free to verify your connection if you know your APRS password.
