Home assistant

Recommended Posts

I'm using Home Assistant for more than one year and if you follow the armbian installation : use a Virtualenv !!!!! or you'll be facing very painful upgrades.

 

I switched to docker images but that's the same spirit.

Hi,

I'm also using home-assistant since about 2 years I think on a tv-box with an armbian image from balbes (5.37 and legacy kernel). I used the virtualenv method and not hassio. The problem with hassio, is that I didn't manage to install it with docker on an arm64 system, but I didn't search too much.

For mqtt and mosquitto, you just have to give the url of the server that can be local. There is also a mqtt server integrated in home-assistant.

I came across this, the project allows the control of a lot of home-brew hardware as well as commercial products:

 

Thanks for sharing - they even support OpenWRT as a component...

I've put some effort to make installation script for Home Assistant using docker: https://github.com/rufik/armbian-hass
Script is self-explanatory, just installs some useful stuff, docker, images (portainer, hass, mqtt, mariadb, etc), prepares containers, etc. It's not finished yet, I'm still working on it, it has some problems (mosquito does not start properly yet), but I'm quite time limited right now. The idea is just to automate all these manuals steps required to bring up whole hass ecosystem...

You can easily fork my repo and customize srcipt to your needs :)

I'm going to develop ready-made config files yet (like hass alredy configured with mariadb, mqtt, influx; to be deployed by script) and that's all.
