Binary sensor missing

Trivial noob question.

Attempting to create a binary sensor by adding the following to configuration.yaml:

  - platform: ping
    name: "My Ping Sensor"
    count: 2
    scan_interval: 30

After rebooting HA I expected to see a new device named “My Ping Sensor”

But I don’t see anything under Devices, Entities or Helpers. Am I doing something wrong or do I not understand how to interact with the new sensor?

Found it!

Developer Tools > States

Just searching for it should also bring it up.

Hmmm. Where would one go to search?

Settings > Search?

I never noticed that feature before.

When I search for my new sensor I think it appears in the results but it says “Reload” and won’t hyperlink to the correct page.

I quick reloaded HA to no avail.

Doing a full reboot now.

But either way, that’s a handy feature. Thanks for letting me know about Search. :muscle:
