The home assistant issues are never ending.
A trivial matter for once. After getting an Amazon echo and enabling the wemo emulation in the tasmota software in the sonoff basics, errors errors everywhere.
I stumbled across this while searching for something else.
The next day
Today I decided to trash the database again (automation?) as the state history graphs are flatlining and remove the wemo emulation for all but one device until perhaps I use nabu casa.
Using the home assistant cloud brings me further from my desired local only system.
