I have a Yeelight Lamp and 2 Yeelight Globes and they are showing in my web front end as “Unavailable” as shown in this screenshot.
My code for them in Configuration.yaml is as follows:
####GROUPS Master_Bedroom: name: Master Bedroom entities: - light.yeelight_bedside_7811dc9201bd - light.yeelight_color2_7c49eb155d7e Sienna_Bedroom: name: Sienna's Bedroom entities: - light.yeelight_color2_7c49eb156032
Earlier in the Configuration file I have the following:
# Customization file customize: light.yeelight_bedside_7811dc9201bd: friendly_name: Max's Bedside Lamp entity_picture: /local/Yeelight.png light.yeelight_color2_7c49eb155d7e: friendly_name: Lesley's Bedside Lamp entity_picture: /local/yeelight_globe.jpg light.yeelight_color2_7c49eb156032: friendly_name: Sienna's Bedside Lamp entity_picture: /local/yeelight_globe.jpg
Although it shows as unavailable, it doesn’t stop me from turning the lights on/off or changing colours etc using voice commands via Google Home Minis.
Does the “unavailability” relate to the message that my “Home Assistant Cloud subscription has expired”? What exactly am I missing out on doing if I don’t renew my subscription? I followed the links to find out more information and it seems to be “With Home Assistant Cloud, you can connect your Home Assistant instance in a few simple clicks to both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.” Since I can control these lamps via GH now, I’m not sure what else it can add.
Thanks in advance.
