Install Home Assistant with Docker

  • So first we need to make sure our system is up to date sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
  • Then we need to install the pre-reqs for Home Assistant
sudo apt-get install network-manager apparmor-utils jq -y
  • Then reboot the Pi
sudo reboot
  • Once the Pi is back, then we need to get the official docker script for RPI
curl -fsSL <> -o
  • Once the script is downloaded, then we need to run it
sudo sh
  • Then we need to give the PI user docker permissions
sudo usermod -aG docker pi
sudo curl -Lo <>
  • Finally we need to run the installer
sudo dpkg -i os-agent_1.2.2_linux_armv7.deb
  • Now we install Supervisor
wget <>
  • Now once the install is complete, we can test by going to:
<http://localhost:8123> or <http://homeassistant:8123>

# Start the kiosk loop. This keystroke changes the Chromium tab

# Otherwise, the ctrl+Tab is designed to switch tabs in Chrome
