nx584 platform provides integration with GE, Caddx, Interlogix (and other brands) alarm panels that support the NX584 interface module (or have it built in). Supported panels include NX4/6/8/8E. Actual integration is done through pynx584 which is required for this to work.
Enabling this sensor platform exposes all of your zones as binary sensors, which provides visibility through the UI as well as the ability to trigger automation actions instantly when something happens like a door opening, or a motion sensor trigger.
To enable this feature, add the following lines to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry binary_sensor: platform: nx584
(string)(Optional)This is the host where the nx584 server process is running. If unset, it is assumed to be
localhost, which will work if the server process is running on the same system as Home Assistant.
Default value: localhost
(integer)(Optional)The port where the server process is running.
Default value: 5007
(list | integer)(Optional)This is a list of zone numbers that should be excluded. Use this to avoid exposing a zone that is of no interest, unconnected, etc.
(map)(Optional)This is a list of zone numbers mapped to zone types. Use this to designate zones as doors, motion sensors, smoke detectors, etc. See the list of available zone types relevant to alarm zones below.
An extended configuration entry could look like this:
# Full example configuration.yaml entry binary_sensor: platform: nx584 host: 192.168.1.10 port: 5007 exclude_zones: - 3 - 5 zone_types: 1: opening 2: opening 4: motion 6: moisture
