This platform enables you to set manual alarms in Home Assistant.

# Example configuration.yaml entry
alarm_control_panel:
  - platform: manual

Configuration variables:

  • name (Optional): The name of the alarm. Default is “HA Alarm”.
  • code (Optional): If defined, specifies a code to enable or disable the alarm in the frontend.
  • pending_time (Optional): The time in seconds of the pending time before arming the alarm. Default is 60 seconds.
  • trigger_time (Optional): The time in seconds of the trigger time in which the alarm is firing. Default is 120 seconds.
