Custom_components not working. Platform not found

Hi, i’m trying to add a custom component to my home assistant, but when checking configuration, I am getting the below error message.

Component not found: climate.heatmiserWIFI.

Home assistant log file shows the below error:

2018-04-08 20:20:01 ERROR (SyncWorker_14) [homeassistant.loader] Unable to find component climate.heatmiserWIFI

Anybody able to help me understand whats causing this?

The custom component is this one.

and I have followed the instructions and copied it to the /config/custom_components/climate folder and added the configuration as per the readme. Not much else to do.

I am running home assistant in docker on synology.

any suggestions?


I’m having the same problem with a custom light component, anyone found a soultion for this?

The custom_components folder must be in the HA configuration directory (where all the yaml files reside) if I’m not mistaken.
