When integrations show on desktop but not in HA on Pi4

I would like to try Ping for an automation I’d like to set up.

On my laptop if I web search ‘Home Assistant Ping’ I see there is an integration for Ping (ICMP) available, but when I search on the Pi via the HA UI I do not see Ping as an integration.

What gives?

You have to set it up through YAML.

See this link Ping (ICMP) - Home Assistant

Thanks - I did that and rebooted but still don’t see it in the Overview (which I have not modified as the standard is fine with me).

Is there somewhere else I should be looking to see the visual for this?

I do have the Binary sensor card which has my ‘Workday’ and ‘Remote UI’ indicators showing (I use Nabu Casa for remote access).

Perhaps its my YAML for this:

  - platform: workday
    country: US
    workdays: [mon, tue, wed, thu, fri]
    excludes: [sat, sun, holiday]
      - '2020-12-30'
      - '2020-12-31'
      - '2021-01-01'
      - '2021-01-18'
      - '2021-07-09'
      - '2021-09-17'
  - platform: ping
    name: "HVAC"
    count: 5
    scan_interval: 60

Try going in the developer tools tab and see if it is there, you can search for the entity under the states tab, it should be named binary_sensor.hvac :smiley:

Nothing like that in the list…

What does your logs say?

Sorry !! Sorry !!

I think I may saved the config YAML to the wrong host.

Let me sort this out…

Yep! That was it - (feeling so stupid) - I mod’ed the YAML on the host I wanted to check - not the host to do the Ping.

Sorted out - again thanks.
