Hello, Im very new to all of this and Im following a tutorial that shows you how to make scales to go under beer kegs so you know how much beer you have left in the keg. The scales use load cells connected to a HX711 amplifier board which then sends the signal to an esp8266 board.
Ive installed home assistant on a raspberry Pi 2 (I found a Pi 2 install file) Ive also added esphome and configured and installed a YAML file onto my ESP32. (Well I think I have anyway).
When I go into esphome within HA I see the attached image.
The next step of the project the guy says to do this…
Once Home Assistant is installed, install ESPHome from Settings→Add-ons to add your scale to Home Assistant. Plug the scale into the computer running Home Assistant. In ESPHome, choose to install a new device. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.
What does he mean by plug the scale into the computer? Does he mean the esp32 with the scales connected? And if so what computer do I plug the esp32 into? My Rpi as thats what’s running home assistant? Im very confused and would appreciate some help.
