Steam


The steam sensor platform will allow you to track the online status of public Steam accounts.

Setup

You need a free API key to use the platform.

To find an account’s 64-bit SteamID on profiles without a custom URL you can check the URL of the profile page, the long string of numbers at the end is the 64-bit SteamID. If the profile has a custom URL you will have to copy the URL into STEAMID I/O to find the 64-bit SteamID.

Configuration

To use Steam in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: steam_online
    api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
    accounts:
      - account1
      - account2
