Fire 7 (9th) And HASS App/Lovelace - Compatable?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f326d409ec0> #<Tag:0x00007f326d409cb8>

I recently bought a cheap Fire7 on one of the Prime days to have a play with, and use as a wall panel.

I installed play store on there with reletive ease using the following guide: https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/10/03/install-play-store-amazon-fire-tablet/

From there I installed the HASS app. When I load it up, I can see my HASS system on the network as an option to connect to. However, when I connect I get “Unable to Connect to Home Assistant” error.

I’ve also tried the inbuilt browser, and Chrome to connect using both the hostname, and IP Address.

IP Error is: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
Hostname is: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

Third party apps such as Wallpanel also do not connect.

I also installed Termux and tried a ping test to my HASS, and it was absolutely fine.

Sounds like a weird permissions issue? Is the Fire Tab blocked from full access by HASS or something?

Thanks for your help!

Guess its not compatible with Fire 7 Tab then. Strange and a bit dissapointing tbh.
