Offline ESPHOME Devices

Since last HomeAssistant update, ESPHOME shows all devices as offline, however, they are active and properly working. Any idea?

Any logs? :page_with_curl:

That’s very unlikely as a HA update shouldn’t at all interfere with the ESPHOME Dashboard (which is updated separately). Feel free to tell us what exact versions you are running. :white_check_mark:

And don’t be scared to give this thread here a read :point_down:

and did you search??
someone asked the same question abt 3 hrs ago…

Thanks for the quick reply!

Ok, I will provide as much info as possible.

  1. I am using HA version 2023.3.1
  2. I am using ESPHome v2023.2.4 (I believe is the latest)
  3. I looked at the other thread opened but the issue is different. In my case, ESPHOME shows the devices offline, but I can see the logs wirelessly, and I can even change the configuration of the devices (upload a modification via wireless).


  1. If I re-upload the configuration wirelessly, the device appears online for like 1 minute and then becomes offline again.


  2. ESP log is below

So it is the same as the other thread (you have a mDNS issue)…
Nothing serious though, as you stated, HA communicates fine with it :wink:

Indeed.

@mmatus1112 did you by chance change anything in your network infrastructure?

Quick fix would be to change the detection of online nodes in the dashboard from the default (mDNS) to ICMP pings. The “proper” fix would be to get mDNS working correctly again in your network :bulb:

I do have the same problem but realy don’t understand this mDNS, ICMP ping orAvahi?
The strange part is that it is already working for years and now suddenly this happens??
What is changed? (I didn’t change anythinh except updating ESPHome and HA)

I realy don’t understand the easy sounding solution:

Just follow the next steps:

1. Enable Avahi on both subnets.
2. Enable UDP traffic from ESPHome node’s subnet to 224.0.0.251/32 on port 5353.

What subnets??? I do not have subnets as far as i Know

Is it possible to explane this to simple people like me?

I feel you as I am experiencing the same thing. I have two Home Assistant Blue devices. I updated one of them while the other one was not updated. The updated one shows the issue while the one that is NOT updated DOES NOT show the issue. I have NOT changed anything from my network at all. I went into my router (xfinity), and saw nothing related to mDNS nor ICMP.

In my troubleshooting issues I have found that if I restart my router, all devices become online but eventually will go offline anyways (but they still work on HA). I will just wait for an ESPhome update to come out and see if the issue is resolved as I believe is not a router configuration issue.
