    Question Espixelstick and Home Assistant

    Hi,

    I've decided to try and get my espixestick working with MQTT and home assistant. I don;t know much about HA or using MQTT, so this is what I have tried.

    I made an Ubuntu Server VM and installed HA following these instructions. Got it running no problems.

    I then added the following to configuration.yaml :

    Code:
    mqtt:
    
    light:
      - platform: mqtt
        name: "PixelStick01"
        state_topic: "matrix/esps/light/status"
        command_topic: "matrix/esps/light/switch"
        brightness_state_topic: "matrix/esps/brightness/status"
        brightness_command_topic: "matrix/esps/brightness/set"
        rgb_state_topic: "matrix/esps/rgb/status"
        rgb_command_topic: "matrix/esps/rgb/set"
        brightness_scale: 100
        optimistic: false
    Restarted HA and now I have the light button.

    I configured the espixelstick as follows:

    However, when I try and turn on the light. nothing happens. The slider switch on the console goes on and then right back off. Any ideas? Something wrong with my config? I also don't seem to have a color picker.

    I think I just found my problem, there was an extra "/" in my topic. I corrected it as follows and now it works!

    Glad you got it working. I'm just beginning using pixel nodes and I want everything to run through Home Assistant. Thanks for your work.
