gc100


The Global Caché GC-100 can be integrated into Home Assistant. GC-100 is a TCP-controllable hardware device which has an array of relays, RS232 serial ports, and flexible ports which can be programmed to be either digital inputs or IR blaster outputs. There are a variety of submodels of the GC-100 which have different amounts of each I/O type.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Currently, only relays and ports configured to be digital inputs are supported in Home Assistant. For IR support, please use the iTach remote platform, but note that it will likely not function concurrently on the same GC100 due to limitations in the TCP socket server implementation used by Global Caché.

Configuration

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

# Example configuration.yaml entry
gc100:
  host: IP_ADDRESS

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Required)The hostname or IP address of your GC100 device.

port

(integer)(Optional)The port on which the GC100 is listening.

Default value: 4998

Binary Sensor

To enable this sensor, you first have to set up gc100, and add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
binary_sensor:
  - platform: gc100
    ports:
      - '3:1': Doorchime
      - '3:2': Garage Obstruction

Configuration Variables

ports

(list)(Required)A list of module-address to name mappings in the format 'x:y': name, where x is module #, y is address.

Switch

This allows you to control and monitor the relay state on your GC100.

To enable this switch, you first have to set up gc100, and add the following lines to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
switch:
  - platform: gc100
    ports:
      - '4:1': Siren
      - '4:2': Sprinkler

Configuration Variables

ports

(list)(Required)A list of module-address to name mappings in the format ‘x:y’: name, where x is module #, y is address.
