NX584


The nx584 platform provides integration with GE, Caddx, Interlogix (and other brands) alarm panels that support the NX584 interface module (or have it built in). Supported panels include NX4/6/8/8E. Actual integration is done through pynx584 which is required for this to work.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

Alarm Control Panel

To enable this, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
alarm_control_panel:
  - platform: nx584

Configuration Variables

hoststring(Optional, default: localhost)

The host where the nx584 server process is running.

namestring(Optional, default: NX584)

This parameter allows you to override the name.

portinteger(Optional, default: 5007)

The port where the Alarm panel is listening.

Binary Sensor

Enabling this binary sensor platform exposes all of your zones as binary sensors, which provides visibility through the UI as well as the ability to trigger automation actions instantly when something happens like a door opening, or a motion sensor trigger.

To enable this feature, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
binary_sensor:
  platform: nx584

Configuration Variables

hoststring(Optional, default: localhost)

This is the host where the nx584 server process is running. If unset, it is assumed to be localhost, which will work if the server process is running on the same system as Home Assistant.

portinteger(Optional, default: 5007)

The port where the server process is running.

exclude_zoneslist | integer(Optional)

This is a list of zone numbers that should be excluded. Use this to avoid exposing a zone that is of no interest, unconnected, etc.

zone_typeslist(Optional)

This is a list of zone numbers mapped to zone types. Use this to designate zones as doors, motion sensors, smoke detectors, etc. See the list of available zone types relevant to alarm zones below.

motion
