Version Text Sensor

The version text sensor platform exposes the ESPHome version the firmware was compiled against as a text sensor.

# Example configuration entry
text_sensor:
  - platform: version
    name: "ESPHome Version"

Configuration variables:

  • name (Required, string): The name of the text sensor.

  • hide_timestamp (Optional, boolean): Allows you to hide the compilation timestamp from the version string. Defaults to False.

  • id (Optional, ID): Manually specify the ID used for code generation.

  • All other options from Text Sensor.

Disabling the compilation timestamp:

# Example configuration entry
text_sensor:
  - platform: version
    name: "ESPHome Version"
    hide_timestamp: True

This will, for example, change the output of the senser from:

1.15.0-dev (Jun 8 2020, 18:53:16) to 1.15.0-dev
