UPC Connect Box


The upc_connect platform offers presence detection by looking at connected devices to a Connect Box from Liberty Global (also known as UPC Cablecom in Switzerland) which is an Internet provider in Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands (under Ziggo).

This integration works by logging into the router with a password. The router can only have one active session at any time, so if you want to access your router settings then stop Home Assistant first.

To use a Connect Box in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
device_tracker:
  - platform: upc_connect
    password: PASSWORD

Configuration Variables

password stringRequired

The password of your router.

host string(Optional, default: 192.168.0.1)

The IP address of your router.

See the device tracker integration page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked.
