Setting up Home Assistant to run as a background service is simple; macOS will start Home Assistant after the system has booted, the user has logged in, and make sure it’s always running.

To get Home Assistant installed as a background service, run:

$ hass --script macos install

Home Assistant has been installed.         Open it here: http://localhost:8123

Home Assistant will log to ~/Library/Logs/homeassistant.log

Configuration is kept in ~/.homeassistant

To uninstall the service, run:

$ hass --script macos uninstall

Home Assistant has been uninstalled.

automake is required for hass to start. If you are missing this on your system, you can install this by running:

brew install autoconf
