Migrating from Sonoff Tasmota

Migrating from previous Sonoff Tasmota setups is very easy. You just need to have esphomeyaml create a binary for you and then upload that in the Tasmota web interface.

Getting Binary

First follow the guides for the different supported devices and create a configuration file. Then, generate and download the binary:

  • Using the HassIO add-on/dashboard: Just click the COMPILE button, wait for the compilation to end and press the DOWNLOAD BINARY button.

  • Using the command line: run esphomeyaml livingroom.yaml compile (replacing livingroom.yaml with your configuration file of course) and navigate to the <NODE_NAME>/.pioenvs/<NODE_NAME>/ folder. There you will find a firmware.bin file, this is the binary you will upload.

Uploading Binary

To upload the binary, navigate to the tasmota web interface and enter the “Firmware Upgrade” section.

In the “Upgrade by file upload” section, choose the binary you previously downloaded

If everything succeeds, you will see an “Upload Successful” message and esphomelib will connect to the configured WiFi network 🎉
