I have the modbus integration working over TCP.
The “sensor” defined in the configuration.yaml file does expose a useable “entity”.
The data is properly being queried and its history stored/displayed properly.
However, where would one define the association of this working “entity” with a parent “device” ? Is not that what the yaml property of - name supposed to define?
When looking for “Devices”, I do not see a device name ESP32-1.
modbus: - name: ESP32-1 type: tcp host: 192.168.1.14 port: 502 sensors: - name: AC-Voltage input_type: holding unit_of_measurement: Volts data_type: uint16 slave: 1 address: 0 unique_id: AC_Voltage_ESP32-1 scale: .01 offset: 0
The “Developer Tools/YAML configuration reloading” sub-feature does NOT appear to work for any changes I make to the “modbus:” section of the configuration.yaml file.
I have to do a “full” RESTART of the Home Assistant platform for any modbus-section changes to be recognized.
Thanks for the help.
