Watchdog app for AppDaemon.

This will create a new entity for each watchdog that you can use in automations. You can add the same entity to multiple watchdogs.


Download the watchdog directory from inside the apps directory here to your local apps directory, then add the configuration to enable the watchdog module.

Example App configuration

  module: watchdog
  class: Watchdog
  state_normal: All good
  state_offline: Something is wrong!
    - name: bedroom
        - entity: sensor.battery
          below: 30
        - entity: binary_sensor.heat_bedroom
        - entity: sensor.battery2
          above: 80
    - name: livingroom
        - entity: sensor.battery
          state: unknown
