Everything you download with HACS will create a dedicated update entity for that repository.

Managed elements

HACS will check for updates to downloaded elements:

  • At startup.
  • Every 48 hours after HA startup.

Everything else

HACS will check for updates to every element:

  • At startup
  • Every 96 hours after HA startup.

Manually trigger updates

On each RepositoryView (the page with details about the element) there is a reload icon at the top-right corner, clicking that will reload it.
