MeteoAlarm giving update errors

Hi all,

I’ve been using the MeteoAlarm component for a while now, but since recently I keep sing errors like this:

2020-01-21 12:45:15 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.binary_sensor] meteoalarm: Error on device update!
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/src/homeassistant/homeassistant/helpers/", line 299, in _async_add_entity
    await entity.async_device_update(warning=False)
  File "/usr/src/homeassistant/homeassistant/helpers/", line 461, in async_device_update
    await self.hass.async_add_executor_job(self.update)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/concurrent/futures/", line 57, in run
    result = self.fn(*self.args, **self.kwargs)
  File "/usr/src/homeassistant/homeassistant/components/meteoalarm/", line 85, in update
    alert = self._api.get_alert()
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/meteoalertapi/", line 37, in get_alert
    if entry.get('cap:areaDesc') != self.province:
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'get'

Does any of you experience the same or know how to fix this?

My configuration is like this:

- platform: meteoalarm
  country: 'NL'
  province: 'Overijssel'
  language: 'ne'

EDIT: Also the binary_sensor device doesnt exist.

Kind regards,

Have you filed an issue at GitHub?
