Windows and configuration.yaml



  • Hi
    A am trying to configure Home Assistant on Windows, but it does not detect the GW. In configuration.yaml I have these lines:

    Example configuration.yaml entry

    mysensors:
    gateways:
    - port: com5
    version: '1.5'

    What have I done wrong? Has anybody a working example that they want to share?

  • Might be the formatting of your configuration.yaml file. Spacing is very important. Try opening in notepad or a more text base/programmer environment (ex, Notepad++) and do a copy/paste from the info on the HA website. Edit as necessary.



  • OK - I will check the formatting.

    But the example file are Linux based, I use Windows, and my serial port are Com 5.
    I would be nice if someone with a Windows configuration would share their working config. One thing is the formatting, but I am not sure that I have written the correct com5 statement.

  • Yes and no. They are formatted for the YAML language; which is basically a series of lines with the proper spaces (not tabs) in them.

    You can use any plain text editor, as long as you obey the spaces. A good program to start with is Notepad++ or Notepad2 (make a copy first) and copy/paste the example from the home-assistant wiki/info.

    As for the Windows entry to point to a serial port i'm afraid I can't help you there. Haven't tried this with Windows yet.

    Hi!

    If you have python and pyserial installed you can use pyserial to list the available ports.

    https://pythonhosted.org/pyserial/shortintro.html#testing-ports

    I think that COM# (COM5, for example) is correct though. The device manager in Windows is another bet.



  • Hi again
    Thanks - I tried to clean up using a YAML translator, and using Notepad2.
    I forgot to set the baudrate to 115200 in Windows, changed that, but still no luck.

    I give up, and continue with Domoticz.

    Thanks for helping.

    No problem.

    An advice on the way, would be to look at the log output and activate debug mode wherever possible when troubleshooting. A log and as much background info as possible will also give those you ask for help a better chance of helping you solve the problem.



  • I am using mysensors/home assistant on windows.....its working fine....here is my conf...

    mysensors:
    gateways:
    - port: 'COM4'
    baud_rate: 115200
    debug: true
    version: '1.5'
    optimistic: 'true'

    Hope this helps...

  • Hi,

    sorry to reply to this old topic, but I have the same problem.

    my config yaml :

    mysensors:
    gateways:

    • device: 'COM5'
      baud_rate: 115200
      debug: true
      version: '1.5'
      optimistic: 'true'

    debug lines on python repeating this :

    INFO:mysensors.mysensors:Trying to connect to COM5
    INFO:mysensors.mysensors:COM5 is open...
    INFO:mysensors.mysensors:Connected to COM5

    File "C:\Users\Fabien\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python35\lib\subprocess.py
    ", line 1275, in wait
    timeout_millis)

    Some one have an idea?

    This looks like a problem with pyserial and not with your configuration. User bazis posted a similar problem in the middle of this thread:
    https://github.com/home-assistant/home-assistant/issues/868

    It was solved by installing 32 bit version of python.

    For the record, what version of pyserial are you using?



  • @martinhjelmare Hi, with python 32bit, it's perfect. Thank you.
