HACS and Emporia VUE integration- problem with installation

I am new to HA and I would like to install an integration with the Emporia VUE energy monitor. (GitHub - magico13/ha-emporia-vue: Home Assistant Integration for Emporia Vue Energy Monitor)
Apparently this requires installation of HACS so I followed the install instructions (https://hacs.xyz/docs/faq/installation) which is supposed to install the HACS integration. This seemed to run alright (created HACS directory, unpacked HACS). I restarted HA afterwards per the instructions but I don’t see a new integration. Can anyone tell me how I can get the Emporia integration installed?

HACS is another integration but it has special powers to install / uninstall other customer integrations, which are not bundled into home assistant yet.

  • first install hacs
  • check integrations page if HACS is installed and active
  • when you have succeeded with hacs, you will receive a new item un hamburger menu as HACS
  • from this new page, you can install your custom integration. I don’t want to go details how to use HACS on this page, i am sure your custom integration covers it.

Thanks but after doing the HACS install (running the shell script) there is no new integration for HACS.

OK, I managed to get HACS installed as an integration. I think I am now in the “rate limited stage”. We’ll see if that clears and I am able to add the Emporia integration.

So far log looks like this:

10:52:51 AM – (ERROR) System Health (custom integration)

Not looking good…this error just came up:

Now, you are receiving errors from custom integration you are trying to install, you should create an issue with repository owner and share these details.

My bad, this looks like one of default components as NWS, not a custom one, but this is definitely not related to HACS. This issues might happen anytime.

The error went away after I restarted HA again. Emporia VUE integration is now working.

Github seems dead, is still a thing? I just got an Emporia V2 with 16 clamps, was going to monitor my miners via Hassio to find out my actual earnings - electricity…
