What’s the latest way to set up your sonoff basic as a LIGHT and not a switch. I thought new MQTT integration and not using Setoption30 1 in the console of Tasmota.
I would appreciate some direction as getting as a Light and not switch.
What hardware do you have?
Sonoff Basic 1 and flashed with latest release of tasmota and HA on Raspberry Pi
Normal way of working would be:
- setoption19 0 - HA disable autodetect
- setoption30 1 - set as light
- setoption19 1 - redetect hardware
If however you don’t want to use that, you have to use a yaml statement/file;
--- # My bathroom mirror lights are connected using a z-wave wall switch. # This makes the device a "switch" withing Home Assistant and therefore # it shows up as a switch in HomeKit and Google Assistant as well. # # This little light switch solves that issue. # # https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/light.switch/ platform: switch name: badkamer spiegel entity_id: switch.badkamer_spiegel
this results in a entity light.badkamer_spiegel which can be used in Lovelace
I was watching digiblurDIY lasted youtube videos and he was saying something about not using setOption30 1 anymore with the MQTT integration. Little confused with this now. Thanks
