[LEDDEVICE|First LED Hardware instance] (ERROR) Device disabled, device 'wled' signals error: 'Retrieving device properties failed with error: 'Network request timeout error''

  • Good evening. I would like to ask you for help. At the moment, I have changed the ESP board to a new one and am trying to set up Hyperion. In the LED settings, the LEDs are identified, they respond.

    I see an error in the log:

    [LEDDEVICE|First LED Hardware instance] (ERROR) Device disabled, device 'wled' signals error: 'Retrieving device properties failed with error: 'Network request timeout error''
    [LEDDEVICE|First LED Hardware instance] (ERROR) Previous line repeats 13 times
    [LEDDEVICE|First LED Hardware instance] (ERROR) Device disabled. Maximum number of 12 attempts enabling the device reached. Tried for 195 seconds.


    All attempts at settings do not give results. I use Led equipment - WLED controller type. All WLED settings in the web interface are set exactly the same as on the previously used ESP board. I don't understand what the problem might be. If you need details with information about my settings to find a problem, I will be happy to share it.

  • Yup, saw this problem for a long time as well on my INTEL NUCs. Tried tons of solutions, but none of them really worked for me.

    My work around is a (long) sleep when starting the hyperion service. This was the only way to get it working.


    Pls find my service file below.

    All attempts at settings do not give results.

    What Hyperion version are you running?

    How do you run/start Hyperion? On what Hardware/OS?

    The error is because WLEDs did not respond in a given timeframe via the Network.

    Have you checked that the new ESP has a good WiFi connection and is up and running g?
