EZcontrol XS1


The EZcontrol XS1 integration for Home Assistant allows you to observe and control devices configured on the XS1 Gateway. Please have a look at the official docs for using this gateway Bedienungsanleitung v3.0.0.0.

Configuration

Add the following entry to the configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
xs1:
  host: "192.168.2.100"

The component will automatically detect the configuration of the XS1 Gateway only on initialization which currently means when Home Assistant boots. When you change the configuration of the XS1 you (currently) have to restart Home Assistant to see the effects.

Configuration Variables

host

(string)(Required)Host of the XS1 Gateway.

port

(integer)(Optional)Custom port if you are running your gateway behind some kind of proxy.

Default value: 80

ssl

(boolean)(Optional)Defines if https should be used for API requests (only possible via your own proxy).

Default value: false

username

(string)(Optional)User to access XS1 web API.

password

(string)(Optional)Password to access XS1 web API.

Supported Device Types

This component currently only covers part of the device types supported by the XS1 gateway, unsupported types are simply ignored.

Sensors

Any type of sensor is supported.

If you are using climate devices the “current temp” sensor will be automatically used by the actuator (if named correctly). To make this work have a look at the actuator description below.

Actuators

Type Supported Notes
switch Yes  
dimmer Partly Dimmers are currently handled like switches so actual dimming is not supported :(
temperature Yes  

Climate Actuator/Sensor

Home Assistant can combine temperature sensors and climate actuators into a single device. The XS1 gateway does not allow this, but a sensor and actuator can be configured separately. To make Home Assistant register them in the same climate device just prefix the sensor name with the actuator name on the XS1 gateway configuration, f.ex:

  • Actuator device name: “Bedroom_Temp”
  • Sensor device name: “Bedroom_Temp_Sensor”

Examples

In this section, you find some real-life examples of how to use this component.
