I’m just starting my first Home Assistant installation. It has been a challenge as a newbie, but I have HASS OS up and running on my dedicated Intel hardware. I have also installed added a couple integrations (Mosquitto and OpenWeatherMap) and they appear on my Integrations page, along with Supervisor and a couple others (Sun, RadioBrowser).
With the HA infrastructure in place, I wanted to start adding devices that can be controlled. I have a Shelly 1 with the temperature Add-on that I have used successfully to monitor freezer temperature using the Shelly Cloud. To move it to local HA control, I reset the Shelly and got it into AP mode. I can see the device when I look for available networks on my phone.
When I go look at my Integrations page, the Shelly does not show up as a discovered device, so I go down to “Add Integration” and select Shelly. A pop-up box appears commenting that I need to wake up any battery powered devices. Since my Shelly 1 is mains powered, I ignore that comment. Below that is a required field labelled “Host*” that needs to be filled in.
I tried putting in my HA IP address as listed in my router … get error message “failed to connect”.
Tried putting in “http://homeassistant.local:8123” … same error message. None of the help documentation describes what is needed in the host field. My google searches haven’t come up with anything either.
Can someone help me here? Thanks for all inputs.
