The Garages Amsterdam integration uses an API provided by the municipality of Amsterdam, to measure the occupancy of Amsterdam parking garages in the Netherlands. You can track multiple garages by adding the integration multiple times.
Adding Garages Amsterdam to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:
If the above My button doesn’t work, you can also perform the following steps manually:
When you add a parking garage, 4 sensors are created in your configuration by default:
- Free space long - Number of free parking spaces for cardholders or reserved spaces
- Free space short - Number of free parking spaces for regular paid parking
- Long capacity - Total of parking spaces for cardholders or reserved spaces
- Short capacity - Total of parking spaces for regular paid parking
Some parking garages don’t have long-term parking spaces, in which case the 2 specific Long sensors will not be created.
Each parking garage also has a binary sensor, which indicates whether there are problems in the data provision from the API. When it indicates
ok everything is fine. If the state changes to
problem, the upstream data might not be up to date or reliable and will remain in this state until new data is coming in.
