Honeywell TotalConnect Alarm Control Panel


The totalconnect platform provides connectivity with the Honeywell TotalConnect alarm systems used by many alarm companies.

This platform 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

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.
