I’m having an issue with Node-Red configuration with Tuya. I’m following this one here to configure a node with Node-red.
Unfortunately, it seems that these devices use a port (6666) that is already being used by HA somewhere:
This is the process which seems to be using that port (I identified it via PID):
At this point I’m stuck. Do you have any hints which can help me to identify what’s using that port in HA so I can change it?
I thought about this right after I posted this one here… It’s basically the local tuya integration conflicting with this one. I disabled the integration, rebooted HA and now the node is connected…
I wonder if it is one specific device. I have 2 tuya bulbs with the integration and not getting this error.
It might be, I’ll try other devices to see what happens.
So I made a test. I can disable 1 device at the time but the Node-Red server must run on another machine in order for the connection to work. So I basically have to create the configuration on the test server and then export it. Which is fine, but I actually don’t know how to create a simple entity in HA from Node Red
I tried the entity node in Node Red but I’m not getting all info… any good guide showing step by step how to do it? What I need is basically get an entity in HA with all information about electric usage (watt,volt, ampere and Kwh). The current Tuya integration doesn’t show the daily usage and that’s what I need which is supposed to be visible in Node-red.
In the entity node press the + sign in the attributes to add. Like you will need
device_class in the home assistant part, then add
measurement in the attributes.
You can also add values depending on their message position in the incoming message.
You’ll also need the HACS addon for enties to work.
Thanks for the reply, I’ll try it. In the meantime I managed to get the info I wanted from an existing attribute by using another integration I was not aware of
