Esphomelib - A comprehensive solution for using ESPs with Home Assistant


Thank’s, I’m gonna try my luck at discord. I’m not any good with coding, I’m only good with copying the code :grin:.
I hope someown is gonna figure it out sooner or later :wink:


That’s funny I came to this thread looking for an example of a fire/candle effect for FastLED as well… will have to see if I can find some code that can be adapted. Thanks for the examples @lmamakos

I didn’t see this posted yet but I have been printing these amazing modular cases for my esphomeyaml devices:

The creator was nice enough to include the source file so it is easy to adapt to other sensors. I am working on a new base to fit a Wemos D1 Mini.


I have the same issue: any idea how to solve this?


I don’t know why it initially happens but to solve it you need to go to your integrations section and delete one copy of the integrated entities for ESPHome you’ll find there. Then restart. They should all come back up OK after that with no more errors.


confirmed this solved the issue


Cool case. Thanks for that.


I’ve just tried to install the add-on (Home Assistant 0.91.1 / Intel CPU )

But the after adding the URL the add-on is not visible. The following error is in the system log:

Has anyone seen this issue before ? I tried to google it but couldn’t find anything usefull.
Internet connection is working. Just updated a few other components so that is working also.

It seems the main problem is the missing “repository.json” file.

-edit 2-

Seems like I’ve been using the wrong link (see log). Correct link : https://github.com/esphome/hassio


Does anyone know if the latest version of ESPHome works with the HC-SR04 Ultrasonic sensor? I heard that they didn’t work on v1.12.1.

I want to verify they now work on v1.12.2.


Not sure about that model but I have 2 of these:

and they work fine with v1.12.2


I can’t quite tell if this is in 1.12.2, but there is an option to use the fix-ultrasonic branch, see https://github.com/esphome/esphome-core/pull/562 and https://github.com/esphome/issues/issues/147

I have one I have been meaning to try, but this weekend is looking busy with real life.


Yes solved in 1.12.2



Thanks for the info, guys (/gals? :wink:)
