geonetnz_quakes integration lets you use a GeoJSON feed provided by
New Zealand’s GeoNet with information
about quakes in the New Zealand region that happened within the last 7 days.
It retrieves incidents from a feed and
shows information of those incidents filtered by distance to Home Assistant’s
Entities are generated, updated and removed automatically with each update
from the feed. Each entity defines latitude and longitude and will be shown
on the default map automatically, or on a map card by defining the source
geonetnz_quakes. The distance is available as the state of each entity, and
converted to the unit (kilometers or miles) configured in Home Assistant.
The data is updated every 5 minutes.

To integrate the GeoNet New Zealand Quakes feed use the “Integrations” feature
in the GUI, you find it under Configurations - Integrations, or add the
following line to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry geonetnz_quakes:
Request quakes that may have caused shaking greater than or equal to the MMI value. Allowable values are -1..8 inclusive. Value -1 is used for quakes that are too small to calculate a stable MMI value for.
The minimum magnitude of an earthquake to be included.
The radius around your location to monitor; defaults to 50 km or mi (depending on the unit system defined in your
Latitude of the coordinates around which quakes are considered.
Latitude defined in your configuration.
Longitude of the coordinates around which quakes are considered.
Longitude defined in your configuration.
The following state attributes are available for each entity in addition to the standard ones:
|latitude||Latitude of the quake.|
|longitude||Longitude of the quake.|
|external_id||The external ID used in the feed to identify the quake in the feed.|
|title||Title of this entry.|
|mmi||The calculated MMI shaking at the closest locality in the New Zealand region.|
|magnitude||The summary magnitude for the quake.|
|depth||The depth of the quake in km.|
|time||The origin date and time of the quake.|
|locality||Distance and direction to the nearest locality.|
|quality||The quality of this information: best, good, caution, deleted.|
Please note that the reported MMI may be lower than the minimum requested MMI. This integration is passing the requested MMI value to the feed source and displays all entries retrieved without further filtering by MMI.
