I wanted to reset my Home Assistent due to the fact, that icloud was moved from the device_tracker to its own domain. See https://www.home-assistant.io/blog/2019/12/11/release-103/ and https://github.com/home-assistant/home-assistant/pull/29144
This gave me new identities for some apple devices, typically padded with _n
Combined with the facts that I have had 3 Apple and 1 Google Mobiel device that last 1,5 year.
I remember that switching from openHab 2 to Home Assistant was due to few/no releases; - well in HA theres a lot, and a lot of breaking changes....
Doing the stuff below has though we a valueable lesson or 2 regarding keeping and eye on entities and renaming them to suitable names that provides info on person, type and integration.
So I deleted
icloud and icloud3 config from Yaml files
icloud3 from custom components
Was partly a new Setup:
Create Admin User
What did I lose:
I lost Lovelace config
Lost Cloud config(Nabu Casa)
Lost IKEA Trådfri (Just needed to re-enter Security Code)
Lost Plex (just relink needed) and plex-clients
Lost Certificate Expiry
First iOSapp setup
This was Anettes iPhone - notice this is impossible to see here.
Notice "sensor.steps_2" - for the first iOS App - well thats because "sensor.steps" are taken:
That is utterly somewhat stupid, that naming are so simple and does not include something more - like "sensor.fitbit.steps", "sensor.fitbit1.steps", "sensor.fitbit_steps"
Adding an iOS App
This was on Normanns iPhone:
Naming sucks...the Mobile App should have some unique ID that could be seen.
Renamed most of it:
Of cause - by renaming entities etc - You need to update all You yaml files
I added the normal iCloud Integration
