Automation example

automation:
  - alias: "Alarm: Disarmed Daytime"
    trigger:
      platform: state
      entity_id: alarm_control_panel.total_connect
      to: 'disarmed'
    condition:
      condition: sun
      before: sunset
    action:
      service: scene.turn_on
      entity_id: scene.OnDisarmedDaytime
  - alias: "Alarm: Armed Away"
    trigger:
      platform: state
      entity_id: alarm_control_panel.total_connect
      to: 'armed_away'
    action:
      service: scene.turn_on
      entity_id: scene.OnArmedAway

If you have issues running this component, you may require libxml2-dev and libxmlsec1-dev packages. To install these on Raspbian, run the command apt install libxml2-dev libxmlsec1-dev with sudo.

Alarm Control Panel

The integration provides an Alarm Control Panel for each TotalConnect location. It uses the name of your location from TotalConnect. For example, if your location name in TotalConnect is “Home”, then you will get alarm_control_panel.home in Home Assistant.

The alarm control panel supports the following services: alarm_arm_away, alarm_arm_home, alarm_arm_night and alarm_disarm.

The triggered state also provides a state attribute called triggered_source giving more detail on what triggered the alarm:

  • Police/Medical is when sensors detected a burglar and/or a person pushed the Police or Medical button
  • Fire/Smoke is when fire or smoke is detected, or a person pushed the Fire button
  • Carbon Monoxide is when carbon monoxide is detected

Binary Sensor

The integration provides a Binary Sensor for each TotalConnect zone. To see zones in TotalConnect “fault” status, your TotalConnect account must have “Sensor Events” enabled. Your alarm monitoring company may charge an extra fee to enable this. If available, these can be found in the Total Connect 2 web portal at Notifications -> Sensor Events. Alternately, they can be found in the Total Connect iOS app at More -> Settings -> Notifications -> Sensor Events. Enable each zone you want to monitor. TotalConnect zones will display as Closed in Home Assistant unless the Sensor Event is enabled.

The TotalConnect API has limited zone type information. Home Assistant device class door is assigned to TotalConnect door, window, perimeter, motion sensor, and most alarm panel buttons. The sensor will appear as True if the door is open (either fault or triggered in TotalConnect) and False otherwise. Device class smoke is assigned to TotalConnect smoke detectors and buttons with physical alarm panel “Response Type” setting of “Fire No Verification”. The sensor will appear as True if smoke is detected. Device class gas is assigned to TotalConnect carbon monoxide detectors. The sensor will appear as True if gas is detected.
