ness_alarm component will allow Home Assistant users who own a Ness D8x/D16x alarm system to leverage their alarm system and its sensors to provide Home Assistant with information about their homes. Connectivity between Home Assistant and the alarm is accomplished through a IP232 module that must be connected to the alarm.
There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:
- Binary Sensor: Reports on zone statuses
- Alarm Control Panel: Reports on alarm status, and can be used to arm/disarm the system
The module communicates via the Ness D8x/D16x ASCII protocol.
