Hello, need some help.
I connected mmWave to my WLAN, installed ESPhome add on in HA.
When i add the discovered device be clicking configure, window pops up Do you want to add the ESPHome node mmwave_kit to Home Assistant? I click Submit, then i get this message
“Please enter the encryption key for mmwave_kit. You can find it in the ESPHome Dashboard or in your device configuration.”
Where do i find that?
I am using Home Assistant Yellow hub updated with latest latest HA 2023.9.2, supervisor.
EspHome is ver 2023.8.3
Where do i find encryption key, or configure to bypass?
Hello, need some help.
Sorry can’t help, I struggle with that as well and now can’t remember where I got the key.
Bought one of the new mmwave sensors which is supposedly a 2 min setup in home assistant, and here I am 6hrs later still struggling. The video and documentation are incorrect it seems, and it runs so fast it took me several attempts to just get it to pause at the right spot to see what it was doing.
Rant over, sorry, its just I specifically purchased this mmwave kit because it said no finding required and a 2min setup, and a bit annoyed that it is in fact the opposite. All I have is an esphome device.detexted with an entity called firmware update!
Hi guys, is it possible to provide any screenshots regarding this issue? We tried to redeploy and did not encounter this issue, what process did you follow to do this?
Is it possible to reflash the firmware for mmWave Human Detection Sensor Kit SKU 110061541 and I can try and run through the install process again ?
Agree 100%, NOT a 2 minute setup. That is false. I am going on 5 hours -still not connected…
About ready to request a refund.
Today i went into the web ui for ESPhome, found a encryption key which did not work per the screen shot.
I followed the instructions per the setup .
Today i tried a 2nd mmwave_kit that was purchased at same time. Same issue as before. Something in my HA yellow or esphome?
It’s a pity seed support isn’t as fast as their instruction videos.
- Slow down your instruction videos, they are impossible to follow and must be running 6x normal speed.
- Speed up your support, between this thread and an email support I am trying to work through, I get 1 email per day asking me questions but not giving any actual response to my queries.
2 minute setup with no coding?
I am on day 3 now, and not even a glimpse of a presence sensor in ha!
Sorry we checked this issue, it may be that the wrong firmware was flashed during factory production, we repackaged the relevant firmware, please try to follow the guide to re-flash the firmware for it

I put another 4 hours into trying to get mmwave_kit working, no joy yet but closer. Here are recent steps.
I saw in the install video for this product the ESPHOME page in HA looked different then my installation. Not the same icons, also it could only be accessed in the card on the Add on page. So i uninstalled ESPHOME and reinstalled it. To do that, i went to the integration to bring it in from the store. The install went to the web UI and installed with Yaml window. Then i added the mmwave_kit and this time it said it installed with the finish window. No incription key needed, i thought Great.
Not so much, there is no card for mmwave_kit on the dash board or in devices under setup. It only shows in ESPHOME on the web UI as a device that is inactive.
Here is a log from installation.
