Readme from petterhj/docker-homeassistant. Notes on running Home Assistant Core in a docker container on a Synology NAS with support for Tellcore and other integrations.


Home Assistant

Docker setup for running Home Assistant with PostgreSQL, InfluxDB, Grafana, Mosquitto and Zigbee2MQTT.

Container

$ docker-compose up

$ docker-compose ps
$ docker exec -it <container_id> bash

$ docker pull homeassistant/home-assistant:stable # Update base image
$ docker-compose up --no-deps -d homeassistant

Services

Service Port Note
homeassistant 8123
postgres 5234
influxdb 8086/8083
grafana 3000 The grafana docker container runs on user:group 472:472. The persistent volume must therefore be chmod as that user: chown -R 472:472 /<path>/.grafana.
mosquitto 1883

Harmony

      harmony_hub:
        friendly_name: "Current activity"
        value_template: '{{ state_attr("remote.harmony_hub", "current_activity") }}'

Home Control

https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/emulated_hue

Logitech Harmony remotes cannot connect to this emulator via Android and iOS mobile applications because they require the physical button on the hub to be pressed. The MyHarmony desktop software must be used with the original cable to connect it, then “Scan for Devices”.

Synology

nginx config: /etc/nginx/nginx.conf (replaced on restart) nginx template config: /usr/syno/share/nginx/

WWW_Main.mustache

location = /description.xml {
  proxy_pass http://<host>:<port>/description.xml;
}
location /api {
    proxy_pass http://<host>:<port>/api;
}
sudo synoservice --restart nginx

Pairing works through app (Android).

https://github.com/hass-emulated-hue/core

This virtual bridge runs at HTTP port 80 and HTTPS port 443 on your local network. These ports can not be changed as the HUE infrastructure requires them to be at these defaults.

Integrations

MQTT

MQTT (aka MQ Telemetry Transport) is a machine-to-machine or “Internet of Things” connectivity protocol on top of TCP/IP. It allows extremely lightweight publish/subscribe messaging transport.

Zigbee
