I run Home Assistant on a NUC with Debian. Tuya-convert seems to use dnsmasq and something more (can’t remeber) which means I can’t run that on the NUC with Home Assistant running since I run add-ons that cause conflicting ports. I think it was ADGuard and …maybe Mosquitto (?) .
I also have a Pi 3+ with a second HA-instance, mostly used for testing sensors and stuff. It is installed with HassOS and I don’t want to re-install it.
So I just boot the Pi with another card with Raspbian, flash the plugs (with a ESPhome-firmware), change back card, reboot. And while the Pi boots up, my main HA’s ESPhome integration just found a new switch to configure.
So it’s really no hassle . It’s not like I flash new plugs daily
I just started this thread because thought I could flash the plugs over WiFi from ESPhome even the first time, not using tuya-convert at all.
And now I know I can’t.
