Vanderbilt SPC

Home Assistant has support to integrate your Vanderbilt SPC alarm panel and any connected motion, door, smoke and technical sensors.

Integration with SPC is done through a third-party API gateway called SPC Web Gateway which must be installed and configured somewhere on your network.

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

Home Assistant needs to know where to find the SPC Web Gateway API endpoints, to configure this add the following section to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  api_url: API_URL
  ws_url: WS_URL

Configuration Variables

api_url string Required

URL of the SPC Web Gateway command REST API, e.g., http://<ip>:8088.

ws_url string Required

URL of the SPC Web Gateway WebSocket, e.g., ws://<ip>:8088/ws/spc.


The spc alarm control panel platform allows you to control your Vanderbilt SPC alarms.

The changed_by attribute enables one to be able to take different actions depending on who armed/disarmed the alarm in automation.

  - alias: "Alarm status changed"
      - platform: state
        entity_id: alarm_control_panel.alarm_1
      - service: notify.notify
          message: >
            Alarm changed from {{ trigger.from_state.state }}
            to {{ trigger.to_state.state }}
            by {{ trigger.to_state.attributes.changed_by }}

Binary sensor

The spc platform allows you to get data from your Vanderbilt SPC binary sensors from within Home Assistant.

Check the type/class list for a possible visualization of your zone. Currently motion, smoke, door and technical sensors are supported.

Hint: In SPC, Technical zones can be used to track (for example) the status of an output. Virtual zones are supported in SPC firmware from 3.11. You can set up a virtual zone as technical, and link it to a mapping key that is controlling an output.
