Home Assistant - Glow CAD
Hi, received my Glow Smart Meter Display & CAD last week and have been trying to set-up Home Assistant with it. I’ve followed various guides on this – robertalexa, megakid, speek-to-the-geek, etc – and no matter what I’ve done I still get the same issue that connection between the Mosquitto broker and the Hildebrand broker is closed before any data is transmitted. See today’s log:
2022-11-05 11:38:12: mosquitto version 2.0.11 starting 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Config loaded from /etc/mosquitto/mosquitto.conf. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Loading plugin: /usr/share/mosquitto/go-auth.so 2022-11-05 11:38:12: ├── Username/password checking enabled. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: ├── TLS-PSK checking enabled. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: └── Extended authentication not enabled. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Opening ipv4 listen socket on port 1883. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Opening ipv6 listen socket on port 1883. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Opening websockets listen socket on port 1884. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Connecting bridge (step 1) glowmqtt1 (glowmqtt.energyhive.com:8883) 2022-11-05 11:38:12: mosquitto version 2.0.11 running 2022-11-05 11:38:12: New connection from 127.0.0.1:43990 on port 1883. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Client <unknown> closed its connection. 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Connecting bridge (step 2) glowmqtt1 (glowmqtt.energyhive.com:8883) 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Connection Refused: not authorised 2022-11-05 11:38:12: Client local.core-mosquitto.glowmqtt1 closed its connection.
I have added a Username and Password to Users in Home Assistant’s Settings -> People. The MQTT section of the CAD is set-up with my Bright App credentials, as I don’t have any others that I could put in those fields. The password is long at 20 characters but only contains upper case, lower names and numbers – no special characters. These credentials are also listed in my glow.conf file. The IP address is Home Assistant’s.
It is probably something simple I’ve missed but I feel I’m going round and round in circles. All help and comments appreciated.
