Reuse and old Android devices as a home alarm control panel that integrates with Home Assistant or any home automation platform that supports MQTT messaging.
MQTT Alarm Control Panel is an alarm control panel for use with home automation platforms that support MQTT messaging. The application was originally built for Home Assistant'sMQTT Manual Control Panel. However, the application can be used with any home automation platform that supports the MQTT messaging protocol such as Jeedom, openHab, or Node-Red.
The alarm control panel acts as an interface for your home alarm system and allows for two way communication using MQTT. You can set the alarm state to away or home, or disarm the alarm using a code. Your home automation system controls the sensors or automation that triggers the siren or notifies users of possible intrusion.
