Request: Allow admin to disable door-lock "unlock" action


#1

For the more paranoid among us (or maybe just me), I would like to have the option to disable “unlock” of any lock from the interface if I wish. I still want the ability to lock a lock from the interface or through a script but I would like to have the option to disable unlocking from Home Assistant. As it stands, I don’t like the idea that if someone can access my home automation software by using a compromised account, to have the ability to unlock my front door.

I realize that there are numerous ways for my network to be hacked and so on but this seems like a relatively easy feature to have built into the lock component.

Think of it like child safety locks on a car - but in reverse. If I forget to lock my door, I can still have the automation system lock it remotely or through automation but I’d really like to remove or disable the unlock option. Maybe a config line in the configuration.yaml or config of the lock - something that isn’t directly editable in the web interface.


#2

As far as I know there are currently no user permission levels in HA, just authentication. (username / password).
There may be some added rights for the first “owner” user. Otherwise, everybody with a login has complete access, currently.


#3

That is true but the next release looks like it will start to incorporate user groups.

Aside from that, what I’m requesting isn’t really an access request but a configuration option request.
