This platform allows you to detect presence by looking at connected devices to a Netgear device.
A recent updates of Orbi APs introduced a bug which takes several hours to detects presence on your local network. The current workaround is to force this component to use the Orbi’s API v2 by adding the
accesspoints: node to your configuration.
To use this device tracker in your installation, add the following to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry device_tracker: - platform: netgear password: YOUR_ADMIN_PASSWORD
