Home Assistant SNMP Switch for PoE on Cisco 3750

Using the Home Assistant SNMP Switch component with my Cisco 3750 PoE switch, it’s possible to enable or disable PoE on a switch port.

This post on a thread about saving energy via PoE got me close enough to manage the rest.

In the example below, i’m controlling PoE on port 41.

Requirements:
SNMP enabled in your switch

IP address, Read-write community string, and OID for the specific port

To find the OID, I’ll use snmpwalk, part of the snmp package

sudo apt-get install snmp

The specific command to find the OID for the port
snmpwalk -v2c -c community_name ip.add.re.ss 1.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3

Sample output:

RagingComputer@HomeAssistant:~ $ snmpwalk -v2c -c community_name ip.add.re.ss 1.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3
iso.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3.5.1 = INTEGER: 1
iso.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3.5.2 = INTEGER: 1

iso.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3.5.40 = INTEGER: 1
iso.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3.5.41 = INTEGER: 1
iso.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3.5.42 = INTEGER: 1

iso.3.6.1.2.1.105.1.1.1.3.5.48 = INTEGER: 1

in my case, .5 is GigabitEthernet, and .41 is port 41.
