UPC ConnectBox


The upc_connect platform offers presence detection by looking at connected devices to a Connect Box from Liberty Global (also known as UPC Cablecom in Switzerland) which is a Internet provider in Switzerland and Austria.

To use a Connect Box in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
device_tracker:
  - platform: upc_connect
    password: YOUR_PASSWORD

Configuration variables:

  • password (Required): The password for your Connect Box.
  • host (Optional): The IP address of your router. Set it if you are not using 192.168.0.1.

See the device tracker component page for instructions how to configure the people to be tracked.
