  1. Hello! I have a few Treatlife regular and dimmer smart switch which I would like to perform the tasmota flash so I could have them added to my Home Assistant. I'm really new to all this and I'm trying to figure the way of doing it. Should I follow the steps in this video to get them flashed? Thanks in advance.

  2. Yep, then look in my videos and there's one on setting it up with Home Assistant. https://youtu.be/_3WW4NVYHrU

  3. Hello again. I did finally convert my single switch (no dimmer) to tasmota and I was able to configure the wifi on it. Problem is that I now don't seem to be able to use it by pushing the button. I can toggle on and off using the webpage. I did search trough your videos and I failed in finding what to do. I believe it has something to do with the "Configure Module" but I'm not sure. Appreciate any assistance you could offer. Thanks again!

    1. As an update, I followed your video and found the template on the Tasmota Device Template Repository!

  4. Can you provide an update using the proxmox you link to in the new link. Thanks

  5. Hi,

    I found problem with this tool, it doesn't work with Raspbian Buster Lite version with relese date 2020-02-13.
    I rolled back to version from 2019-09-26.
    it doesn't open AP to connect to.

    1. Yes, they require the country code to be set now. The link to set it is in the video desc.
