  • ESPHome Beta (HS4)

    Please find attached the first beta version of the ESPHome plugin for HS4.

    Currently it supports
    • Sensors
    • Binary sensors
    • Switches
    • Covers
    They all need zero configuration in HS (except for MQTT broker settings ofcourse).

    You need to add this to your ESPHome configuration file (make sure you remove the api section !):
    Code:
    mqtt:
      broker: <broker ip address>
      discovery: true
      username: <username>
      password: <password>
    updater_override.json still does not work on Linux ...

    Please note that layout and internal structure might still change.

    What is the updater_override.json.txt file for?

    I have never installed a PI manually so I am not sure what to do with it.

            Tried to install but got this error. The zip file is in the /usr/local/HomeSeer/Uptates4/Zips directory. Running on Ubuntu

              it needs to be in the root of your HS installation i believe.
              If that doesn't work, the backup plan is to copy the files manually :-/

                I had it in the root HS directory the fist time it failed. I moved it to Updates4/Zips and it still failed.

                    Were you planning a Linux version?

                    Here are the errors I can find when I start HomeSeer with ./go

                    03:45:35:4827:[Error]->Warning, Cannot load EXE file (possibly missing dependencies) HSPI_ESPHome.exe: Exception of type 'System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException' was thrown.

                      yes, it should work on linux ...
                      Did you put the DLL's in bin/ESPHome ?

                      What happens if you change the backward slashes in the paths with forward slashes in HSPI_ESPHome.exe.config?

                      Code:
                                  <probing privatePath="bin\ESPHome;bin\homeseer"/>

                          I am not a plugin developer (yet.)

                          Is using the correct slash for things like the path something that can or should be taken care of in the plugin?

                            Can you please clarify - what exactly does the plugin do? If I still need to install and configure MQTT broker - then I can use other (existing) MQTT plugins instead?

                              kriz83 Will I be able to use the ESPHome dashboard to create the YAML config files to configure a device such as a WIMO D1 and then have HomeSeer read those same YAML config files to create the devices in HomeSeer?
