Error requesting ESPHome Dashboard data: Cannot connect to host ssl:default [Connect call failed ('', 63211)]

Hi, folks! Any idea how to fix this error? Anyone else having this issue with the new ESPHome version 2023.4.3?

I know it has something to do with docker and networking (obviously) but no clue why it appears. I cannot Submit a new ESPHome node because of this error. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling ESPHome.

I’m running an older version of ESPHome (2023.3.2) and see this too.

I just assumed it was because the ESPHome addon is not running and home assistant tried to communicate with it. I just tested that theory by starting the addon then restarting home assistant.

No error. So that could be it.

Is your ESPHome addon running?

Wait. You were saying you ESPHome was not actually running?

Mine is running. And it seems to be working fine. Except it reports that error I mentioned and the fact that I am not allowed to add new nodes. Here is what it is saying in the Add-on Log:

Yeah if I’m not using the addon to configure devices I turn it off.

Looks like my theory does not hold water though if yours is running.

you don’t need ESPHome add-on running to actually have access to ESPHome devices? :open_mouth:

No you don’t. That is all handled by the home assistant integration.

I see. And from this respect, do I have an issue with the add-on or the integration? What do you think?

From this it would appear to me to be either the addon or the supervisor: “Error requesting ESPHome dashboard data”

Probably the supervisor as I am on the last version of ESPHome.

I restored the previous HA backup and I don’t have the issue anymore. Using ESPHome v 2023.4.2 now.

I guess I won’t be updating anytime soon.

I suspect that is coincidence. As I said, I am on version 2023.3.2 of ESPHome and I see the error occasionally too.

The problem is I could not get rid of it.

BTW, to get things weirder I happen to have 2 versions of ESPHome as optional add-ons. It did not help that I got rid of one of them.

Now in v 2023.4.2 I still have the 2 options but no issues. I mention this that perhaps it has something to do with it.

I did get that error, too, today.

It’s a bit unfavorable that this comes up as an error. I suspect that this has purely to do with the timing of booting. So that HA expects ESPHome to be ready, but it’s not (yet).

…I have this error too. I’m on hassos, up to date version for ESPHome (2023.5.5) and HA (2023.5.4). I also agree that should be some kind of problem with ESPhome addon not being yet ready when restarting, because I have only 1 error, at time of starting and no more of this error so far (next 14 hours).
