Been playing around with home assistant for a few days, and frankly i am not getting very far… I have a few experimental devices starting out my IOT journey rather cautiously.
I bought a tuya smart plug, and a couple of shelly devices.
I attempted to bring these integrations into HA via the standard cloud based tooling. Sadly neither worked. Tuya device not showing and having a problem with auth I suspect. Shelly device shows up but some severe log messages suggest there is a problem.
So… a little disappointing. Not for the faint of heart I suspect.
I contributed issues to github on these integrations… but this stuff seems fairly basic to me… Should it not work out of the box ?
Curious as to how you use HA. Do you go straight for MQTT and ignore the more common integration pathway ?
My longer term plan is to separate from the internet, but wanted to do this in a couple of steps.
Looking for any feedback… would be appreciated.
