danioj Posted September 3, 2021 Share Posted September 3, 2021 Posting this here in the hope that it assists someone in the future. I host my instance of HomeAssistant in a VM on unRAID. I have recently purchased a ConBee II USB-Gateway so I can add Zigbee devices. I added the USB using the unRAID VM GUI, like I imagine most would, by just checking the tick box next to the device. This didn't work. While Home Assistant found the device, the integration would not add (there were communication errors). The trick was to add the device as a serial-usb device. AFAIK you cannot do this via the GUI. So I added the following code to my VM config: <serial type='dev'> <source path='/dev/serial/by-id/<yourusbid>'/> <target type='usb-serial' port='1'> <model name='usb-serial'/> </target> <alias name='serial1'/> <address type='usb' bus='0' port='4'/> </serial> I was then able to add the integration easily. Interestingly, it didn't auto discover, but that's just an aside. Note, <yourusbid> can be found via the command line - it contains the device serial so its not to be posted. 7 1 Quote Link to comment
