I’m trying out Home Assistant for the first time, so a complete newbie, and can’t get my sensors to provide data.The overview page shows the Energy Meter sensor but the entities are in a red circle with “unavailable”, or in the case of the Temperature sensors, a “-” sign.
The more important one at the moment is the Energy Meter.
I’ve added to the configuration.yaml file:
Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)
Text to speech
- platform: google_translate
group: !include groups.yaml
automation: !include automations.yaml
script: !include scripts.yaml
scene: !include scenes.yaml
Iammeter Energy Meter entry
- platform: iammeter
name: Energy Meter
temp/humidity sensor entry
- platform: mitemp_bt
name: Temp Humidity Sensor 1
And tried both the IP address and the mac address for the iammeter host, but both give the same “unavailable” state, see here for the States snapshot:
Am I doing (or not doing) something really obvious?
