Recovery Mode

The recovery_mode integration is an internally used integration by the Home Assistant Core.

You don’t have to configure it in any way since it is automatically always available when Home Assistant needs it.

If, during startup, Home Assistant has problems reading your configuration, it will still continue to start using bits and pieces from the configuration of the last time it did start.

When this happens, Home Assistant will start in “Recovery mode” using this integration. In this mode, nothing is loaded, but it does give you access to the Home Assistant frontend, settings and add-ons.

This gives you the possibility to correct the issue and restart Home Assistant to re-try.
