[Addon] Home Assistant inside Home Assistant! Hassception!

Just wanted to share a little project I’ve been working on. It’s an Addon for Home Assistant OS that runs another Home Assistant Core instance. Home Assistant Inception aka “Hassception”!

Here’s the Addon repo if anyone is interested in trying it out:

My use case for this is due to the limited ability that Home Assistant has to create user specific dashboards. For example, if you have an Airbnb with some smart home devices and you would like to allow your guests to access some of the devices but not all. This Addon allows a completely separate HA instance that can be tailored specifically for those users.

The Addon uses the latest Home Assistant Core docker image so when a new update comes out all you have to do is click ”Rebuild” and it should use the current version. All of the configuration is stored in the Home Assistant OS config folder under “hassception”.

Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions or comments!
