2 issues with Grocy , any advice to fix this is appreciated or alternative works too

Hello -

I have recently started with HA and installed HACS and then Grocy.

Use case - I want to track chores around the home and update them using a telegram notification response and/or NFC tag. This means If I scan the NFS tag the chore should be considered done, same with the telegram bot’s actionable notification. I have come so far with half of it only but ended with the below issues.

My system info -

Version 	core-2022.4.7
Installation Type 	Home Assistant OS
Development 	false
Supervisor 	true
Docker 	true
User 	root
Virtual Environment 	false
Python Version 	3.9.9
Operating System Family 	Linux
Operating System Version 	5.15.32

Issue1 :

After the restart of HA , I immediately started seeing these logs. gone through the documentation and I see no info on how to use this add-on now.

How should I proceed and what are my options?

Issue2:

I went ahead and proceed to create sensors to test, surprisingly after every restart sensors are behaving weird, for a while I see all the created sensors, and then after a restart one of the sensors shows unavailable.

Here is my sensor config (somehow the formatting isn’t looking good , but this is valid configuration, which I tested with “check configuration” )

and also I see few logs like this , I believe there are just warning and can ignore for now.

so, bottom line it seems either there is some issue with Grocy app with the latest version of OS or I am overlooking something here.

can someone help me on this issue and/or is there an easy alternate solution to achieve to track chores.

The first two lines of your error messages are common and no problem.

The rest does not seem to relate to grocy or hacs.

As far as your sensors are concerned, I am not sure what you are doing with rest. There are sensors created by the integration, although they were disabled when I first set it up. I have enabled these two, and I suspect the overdue tasks is “unknown” because I have no overdue tasks.

Thanks, I gonna check that what you mentioned.

Do you see the same errors as I get (ignoring first two lines?) reason is I have tested twice that I see them coming right after adding grocy.

Also is your use case just to display? Or do you action them like task complete?

Yes I see it and it does seem to relate to grocy. The authors need to tidy some syntax up by the look deprecated code warning in HA 2022.3.8 · Issue #197 · custom-components/grocy · GitHub

I am not really using it for anything at the moment. I installed it this morning so I could hopefully help a new user.

I am using Grocy to display the next due chore, and then clicking it to call grocy.execute_chore to action it as completed. I’m not using REST though, just the entities created by the integration.

I don’t see that I’m getting those warnings either (I’m on 2022.4.5). I assume you’re seeing them under the “load full home assistant log”.

Thank you, Somehow all my entities are disabled and unable to enable them. Would you mind sharing some info about how I can achieve the same?

That’s correct. Safe to ignore you think?

Grocy entities that have no data show up as unknown, but I don’t have any as disabled and I didn’t do anything special. Maybe it’s related to the errors you’re getting.

I have most things turned off in the config for Grocy in Supervisor as I only use chores and battery reminders. Maybe try the same?
