The Escea integration allows monitoring and control of local Escea fireplaces. These fireplaces are manufactured in New Zealand and sold throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Support all current Escea fireplaces with the Smart Heat feature, including the DF, DL, DS, and DX series. Though these fireplaces are supported, they can only be integrated if they were connected via Ethernet when installed (i.e., these fireplaces do not support Wi-Fi).
Adding Escea to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:
Escea can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown as Discovered. You can then set it up right away.
If it wasn’t discovered automatically, don’t worry! You can set up a manual integration entry:
Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
In the sidebar, select Settings.
From the configuration menu, select Devices & Services.
In the bottom right, select the Add Integration button.
From the list, search and select Escea.
Follow the instructions on screen to complete the setup.
The Escea system uses UDP over the local network to find and communicate with Escea devices. For this to work properly, UDP port 3300 must be available for broadcasting and messaging fireplaces, and similarly, UDP port 3300 must be available to listen for responses. The integration currently listens on
0.0.0.0 and broadcasts to all broadcast IPv4 local addresses, which is not configurable.
Fireplace on / off, fan settings, and desired temperature settings are supported. The current room temperature, as measured by the fireplace, is also supported.
If you’re trying to track down issues with the component, set up logging for it:
# Example configuration.yaml with logging for Escea logger: default: warning logs: homeassistant.components.escea: debug pescea: debug
This will help you to find network connection issues etc.
