Docker template for Home Assistant - Python 3 home automation

Hi,

 

I have two questions regarding this docker:

 

1) Where can I store custom components? On an RPi Installation I can create a folder "custom_components" in the home directory of home-assistant

 

2) If I need pip3 packages: do I need to install them on the base unraid system or within the docker?

 

Br,

Johannes

 

Ok, It seems I was able to figure it out by try-and-error:

 

1) custom_components: placed them in the appdata-folder of the app

2) pip3 packages installed as user root

I've created a template for creating Home Assistant containers in DockerMan. Add the following url to your template repositories at the bottom of the Docker tab in your Unraid configuration: https://g

Would like to see this, I have hass.io running on a raspberry pi but a docker would be sweet. 

Copy the files from the instructions into your home-assistant appdata folder e.g. appdata/home-assistant/www and then add the config elemenets to your config file.    If you're stuck I'd ask

Ok, still struggeling with one component (BLNET for Home Assistant).

 

If I start home assistant I am getting the following error:

@balloob: Do you have an idea in my issue?

 

I think I may need to install the PyBLNET within the docker, but I do not know how to do.

 

If I run pip3 install PyBLNET within the Docker, then I am getting the following error:

Thanks to this thread and container I'm hooked on HomeAssistant.  I've been adding quite a few containers to my war chest of containers.  After testing several for a while and getting the hang of making my own templates I've decided to share the work back to make is easy on the folks using things.  I'll be adding the MQTT Smartthings one soon as I myself were looking for this one in the thread.  I do have the TasmoAdmin and HA-Dockermon templates going up soon if not already.

My first stab at this - installed docker ok brings up main screen but then when i follow the next step guide

 

!Hass.io main panel! is completly missing form the docker - anyone any ideas as that seems to be how one adds addons.

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

I need to move my Z-Wave stick away from my unRaid server more centrally (with an Raspberry Pi). This should be possible with ser2net (on PI) and socat (on the HA Server).

 

Unfortunatly I have not seen any solution for Socat on Unraid, but I saw that there are dockers available with HomeAssistant + Socat:

 

https://github.com/vladbabii/homeassistant-socat

 

Any chance to get such a thing to the unRaid Docker?

 

Br,

Johannes

Why not run everything on the Raspberry pi then? Or just buy an Z-wave Extender if it's the signal strength that is your issue.

I want to run as less as possible on the RPi, therefore I have the unraid server ?

 

With the range extenders I had no good experience, for me the wall plugs are working better in terms of signal repeating, but also for them I would need additional 4 to 5 devices to setup a proper coverage.

But if you already run the rpi, then why not also HA? Cheaper than buying many wallplug. 

You have a really big house or concrete walls?

My HA container started acting weird after one of the recent updates.  I have it so I can access it through nginix and letsencrypt as detailed by SpaceInvaderOne.  For some reason the Port Mapping and port config went missing:

The other containers in the "proxynet" network, NodeRed & Bitwarden, are working as intended.  

 

I've tried uninstalling, removing, re-installing the HA container multiple times.  Any ideas?

Hello,

 

I have Home-Assistant running on my unraid server.

Working fine! I do have a question. To be honnest, i'm not sure this is related to this docker or home-assistant.

I try to include some custome node.js files in my lovelace config. It does not seem to work...

Do I have to modify something in the docker config?

 

See my lovelace config below...

Any idea?

Just FYI what I discovered as I switched from HASS in a VM to just the main container using a fixed IP in bridge mode:

1) HASS removed the docker port mapping, so Unraid will not show ports, and the web UI link will not work. I could not find a way to make Unraid do explicit port mappings or how to make the web ui link work, e.g. like I would manually do using docker compose when adding ports.

2) HASS runs as root, workaround is to use this solution, such that appdata permissions work as expected. Copy the run script to appdata folder and add execute permissions (or git clone and copy run file to correct folder). Edit docker config in advanced mode and add "--user 99:100" in extra parameters section. Add env UMASK and set value to 007. Make sure all config files in appdata are deleted, other than run, start container, and permissions will be correct.

Hope this help somebody.

You won't.  As soon as an app is on its own separate IP address, all port mappings are meaningless as the container will utilize whatever ports that it chooses (ie: the default ones)

how to make the web ui link work,

IIRC there is an issue with the webUI entry when using an app on it's own IP.  Either bookmark the appropriate URL in your browser, or try enabling authoring mode in settings - docker (you have to stop the service first), and explicitly specify the appropriate URL in the webUI entry (advanced view)

Yep, I understand the meaninglessness of mapping ports in bridge mode, but without it the web UI link does not work.

Of all my containers running in bridge mode, home assistant is the only container where the launch web ui link does not appear.

Most other other containers do list port mappings such that they work correctly in host or bridge mode.

Would be great if the web ui link always works, maybe use port mapping, or use IP address assigned in bridge setup.

I'm looking to start dabbling into home automation and I'm probably going to need a bit of hand holding, @balloob are you still maintaining things here? It seems there have been quite a few questions and people helping each other out, but that you've gone a bit silent. I'm not blaming you - taking on the support role is a huge commitment, I'm just wondering if you're still around.

I have Home Assistant docker installed.

I noticed that when I go to the webgui, it now shows it's deprecated.

image.png.9569768d74d097670217ab3432f1d7c0.png

when I click on the button, i get

image.png.8d6838c60724df6809479624e6b01d94.png

 

I read something about lovelace being the new ui.  

https://www.home-assistant.io/blog/2019/01/23/lovelace-released/

 

When I search in unraid Apps for home assistant, I get the following

image.thumb.png.528e8ef10522e11943fbf70a406d0dc7.png

 

So is this docker going to be updated, or should I remove the docker I have installed and install the above Control Panel or Core dockers?

 

Just trying to figure out how to get the on latest docker for Home Assistant.  I don't like the Deprecated flag, as that means this version should be replced.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

I have Home Assistant Core running in a docker container in Unraid. I'm trying to install a custom component by creating a "custom_components" folder in the main directory of the container (...appdata\Home-Assistant-Core\) and then copying the appropriate files here.

My problem is that I don't know how to manipulate the file system of the docker container. I can view it in the Unraid web interface but I'm not sure the best way to create a folder or copy a file over from my desktop. I'm sure this is simple but I'm somewhat new to Unraid. Could somebody please recommend an approach that I can look into further?

Thanks!
