Home Assisstant Core (python virtualenv)

Construction of this site (using these github pages) is temporarily on hold

In these last months, I have made no progress toward advancing this quick start for Home Assistant Core on FreeNAS. In an effort to remove some distractions – because I can’t just turn on and leave alone – that come with using github pages, I am putting this site on hold.

I am hoping that temporarily moving this quick start to the project wiki will allow me to focus on expanding these docs in a more timely manner. When the wiki is more complete with content, I will again attempt for better presentaion using these github pages.


This is a FreeNAS Community Plugin

Using USB Z-Wave and Zigbee controllers

To directly access devices like the Aeotec Gen-5 USB Stick, Nortek HUSZB-1 or similar USB controllers inside an iocage-jail, you will need to use a custom devfs_ruleset. Before a jail can use the custom ruleset, it must first be created on the FreeNAS host.

The current release is intended for FreeNAS 11.3 but should work with FreeNAS 11.2-U7 or later
