Vanderbil SPC Alarm Component

Homeassistant 0.71
Is anyone running the Vanderbilt (Siemens) SPC Alarm homeassistant component successfully?

api_url: https://get_user:[email protected]:8088/
ws_url: ws://ws_user:[email protected]:8088/

Tried both with and without the usr/pass

Log says:

anyone got this component working?

It’s been broken since 0.65 when HASS switched to a newer version of aiohttp which broke several components. It worked fine before, you can downgrade to 0.64 and it will work. Hope someone with a bit of knowledge of the component can have a look at it soon, it’s been broken for months now.

Thread necro!

Documentation on the component here at HA is wrong.

First, the ws url is wrong, it should be:

If you’re running the spc gateway on the same computer as HA, port 8089 can be used instead.

Second: If you want the motion detectors etc work, they need to be unhidden in the UI by creating a customize.yaml and add some info there. The name of your sensors will of course be different, and you can find them in :8123/developer-tools/states


  hidden: false

…and this needs to be added if you haven’t already:


  customize: !include customize.yaml

Component has now been updated to default to non-hidden devices and should no longer need the extra customization from (I guess) next release.

Hi, I have managed to get SPC Gateway to work, I can see my door sensors and status for them. I can set alarm to on or off for different areas. But I can’t get the motion sensors to work. I have tried what is written here, with or without “hidden: false” but with no success.

Is it anything on the SPC side that must be done also?

Tnx in advance
