So the new integration still requires bluetooth, apparently. I’m more than willing to check out an ESPHome, but I really need this dumbed down, as it’s new for me, and a bit more advanced than I’m used to.
SO - my HA PC is in my basement. I need to control 5 blindtilts in my Living Room, and 2 in my dining room. I need to get two of THESE right?
So once I have these… What do I do with them? I assume I need to power them? How? And how do I connect them to HA? I’m guessing the ESP things have both WiFi and bluetooth, so i’m guessing they connect to HA through Wifi? And then the blindtilts are controlled by HA sending commands through WiFi, which then sends the commands to the blindtilts using bluetooth?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially if you speak slowly and use small words!
EDIT!! I have one of THESE laying around from when I was messing with WLED stuff - will this work?
SECOND Edit: I don’t think it will work - plugged it into my PC - even though it says “connected” at the ESPHome website - it just hangs on “Connect” and then fails.
