I recently migrated my HA instance to new hardware. My existing ESP devices have been added and show up in the integrations and everything works as before. However, when I open the ESPHome Dashboard, it says “Welcome to ESPHome”, “It looks like you don’t yet have any devices”. How can I get these devices to show up in the ESPHome Dashboard once again?
Copy over your configs from the old instance.
Are there any specific configs related to this? I copied the usual yaml files, but most everything else was a fresh start. I also tried restoring ESPHome from the original HA backup.
the *.yaml files in the
You need the device specific configs, config>esphome>device_name.yaml, what I did when I migrated was to copy over the configs and re-install them to the devices.
Thanks for the guidance! I simply copied the entire esphome folder from /config, pasted to the new install location, restarted HA, and everything works again. Thanks!
That is not needed as the devices already have the firmware on them.
