Installing Hass.io


Hass.io images are available for all available Raspberry Pi and Intel NUC platforms.

The recently released Raspberry Pi 3 model B+ is not yet supported.

There is an issue in the Etcher flashing process on Mac OS High Sierra. There is an easy workaround, just uncompress the image first.
bash bunzip2 -c resinos-hassio-1.1-raspberrypi3.img.bz2 > image.img

  • Optional - Setup the WiFi or static IP: On the SD-card, edit the system-connections/resin-sample file and follow the ResinOS howto.
  • Insert SD card to Raspberry Pi and turn it on. On first boot, it downloads the latest version of Home Assistant which takes ~20 minutes (slower/faster depending on the platform).

If your router doesn’t support mDNS then you’ll have to use the IP address of your Pi, instead of hassio.local, for example http://192.168.0.9:8123. You should be able to find the IP address of your Pi from the admin interface of your router.

Please remember to ensure you’re using an appropriate power supply with your Pi. Mobile chargers may not be suitable since some are designed to only provide the full power with that manufacturer’s handsets.

If you copy over your existing Home Assistant configuration, make sure to enable the Hass.io panel by adding either discovery: or hassio: to your configuration.

Alternative: install on generic Linux server

For advanced users, it is also possible to try Hass.io on your Linux server or inside a virtual machine. To do so, run the following command as root:

curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/hassio-build/master/install/hassio_install | bash -s

When you use this installation method, some add-ons will not be available, and the documentation might not work for your installation.

A detailed guide about running Hass.io as a virtual machine is available in the blog.
