Home Assistant / home-assistant.io
Awaken your home
Open source home automation that puts local control and privacy first. Powered by a worldwide community of tinkerers and DIY enthusiasts. Perfect to run on a Raspberry Pi or a local server.
Pretty awesome application and community. Today I was able to set it up on my Pi3, connected a zigbee usb controller, set up a few light bulbs, and already created scripted automations all within an hour or so. Strikingly straightforward to set up.
I think it would be great if we were able to manage an instance in Cloudron, maybe even on a Pi. I think this would be a great use case for the multi-cloudron feature coming in 7.0.
Home assistant has a Docker-based deployment option; though it also has a bunch of device / hw integrations (zigbee usb controller, for example) which could delay a fully-featured implementation.
I think I have looked into this ages ago but from what I remember it uses extensive use of plugins (like node-red). Is that still the case? If so, it's always a challenge to make a platform as an app on Cloudron.
@girish That's only if you use HomeAssistantOS. It's also available as a docker-container app. Their docs are a bit confusing about this.

Yes, Home Assistant relies heavily on plugins. The problem could be that you not only have to maintain the application, but also each plugin yourself, since they are all (independent) Docker based.
@subven Again, that's only if you use HomeAssistantOS. If you use the standalone docker container, you cannot install these plugins. It's far from "relying heavily" on them.
I've been using HomeAssistant as a standalone container for months now, and to be honest I never really needed any of these plugins.
I installed my HomeAssistant on a new Raspi4b with 8GB RAM.
HA OS would be a bad idea for that.
I found https://github.com/SensorsIot/IOTstack and there is an installer for https://github.com/home-assistant/supervised-installer in the advanced options.
It is broken, but with a littlte bit of debuging, I got it.
So, this is the option to get the full functionally HA in a Docker container.
@sirfichi Why not just use https://hub.docker.com/r/homeassistant/raspberrypi4-64-homeassistant ?
@mehdi I think thats the version without the supervisor.
And I actually have my old Raspi running with HAOS and supervisor and I would miss some features....
Holy crap, I would buy separate subscriptions for each box I have these on.
I made one for myself here. Feel free to adapt it to your needs: https://git.atrilahiji.dev/atrilahiji/cloudron-homeassistant-app
It is VERY janky rn.
Also I allowed signup for my personal gitea so if you want to report issues you can also do it via issues there. Also if you want to just contribute on there let me know once you make an account and I will change your repo limit from 0.
