The sabnzbd platform will allow you to monitor your downloads with SABnzbd from within Home Assistant and setup automation based on the information.

To use SABnzbd with your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  platform: sabnzbd
  api_key: YOUR_API_KEY
    - 'current_status'
    - 'speed'
    - 'queue_size'
    - 'queue_remaining'
    - 'disk_size'
    - 'disk_free'

Configuration variables:

  • host (Required): The host where your SABnzbd instance is running, eg.
  • port (Optional): The port to use whith SABnzbd instance. Defaults to 8080.
  • api_key (Required): Name that will be used in the frontend for the pin.
  • name (Optional): The name to use when displaying this SABnzbd instance.
  • ssl (Optional): Use https instead of http to connect. Defaults to False.
  • monitored_variables array (Required): List of the monitored variables.
    • current_status: current status of the SABnzbd instance
    • speed: Current speed
    • queue_size: Size of the queue
    • queue_remaining: Remaining elements in the queue
    • disk_size: Disk size of the storage location
    • disk_free: Free disk space at the sotrage location

Note that this will create sensors under the name ‘sab’ and NOT ‘sabnzbd’ as follows:

 - sensor.sab_status
 - sensor.sab_speed
 - sensor.sab_queue
 - sensor.sab_left
 - sensor.sab_disk
 - sensor.sab_disk_free

As always, you can determine the names of sensors by looking at the dev-state page < > in the web interface.
