SECURITY CONTROL PANEL
Introduced in release 0.101.0
Alexa will require a 4 digit voice personal identification number (PIN) for disarming. Configure a 4 digit PIN in the Alexa app, or use an existing 4 digit PIN
code configured for the security_control_panel.
To use the exiting
code configured for the security_control_panel the
code must be 4 digits and the
code_format attribute must be
FORMAT_NUMBER. After discovery the Alexa app will offer the ability to use the existing
code, or create an additional 4 digit PIN to use with Alexa. The existing
code is never communicated to Alexa from Home Assistant. During disarming, Alexa will ask for a PIN. The PIN spoken to Alexa is relayed to Home Assistant and passed to the
alarm_control_panel.alarm_disarm service. If the
alarm_control_panel.alarm_disarm service fails for any reason, it is assumed the PIN was incorrect and reported to Alexa as an invalid PIN.
Alexa does not support arming with voice PIN at this time. Therefore if the security_control_panel requires a
code for arming or the
code_arm_required attribute is
true the entity will not be exposed during discovery. Note that
code_arm_required may default to
true even if the integration does not support it. Use the Entity Customization Tool in the Home Assistant Configuration and override
false to expose your security_control_panel during discovery.
security_control_panel state must be
disarmed before arming. Alexa does not support switching from one armed state to another without first disarming. e.g. switching from

armed_custom_bypass isn’t supported by Alexa and is treated as
