Owntrack setup with cloudmqtt and zones

I’m just getting started with Home Assistant and have set up a few simple components. I set up owntracks with cloudmqtt and zones per the Bruh video. Cell phone works fine si I updated the configuration.yaml file. Home assistant loads with no errors but I don’t see any evidence that owntracks is working. What should I expect to see: a map with my location an icon with my location state? Any help on where to look would be very much appreciated.



just add debug message into config…yaml

default: warning
homeassistant.components.mqtt: debug

and you will see mqtt message at home-assistant.log


Thank you for that, It sure provided a lot of information. The errors I received are:

2017-05-21 21:19:38 ERROR (Thread-12) [homeassistant.components.mqtt] Unable to connect to the MQTT broker: Connection Refused: not authorised.
2017-05-21 21:19:40 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.loader] Unable to find component homeassistant.components.mqtt
2017-05-21 21:19:40 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.setup] Setup failed for homeassistant.components.mqtt: Component not found.

My configuration.yaml entries are:

broker: m13.cloudmqtt.com
port: 12871
client_id: home-assistant-1
keepalive: 60
username: ha

Any help would be very much appreciated.


Could be username or password problem?
