I am a total noob to HA. I want to run it on a Pi4. To start I installed it using the image for the 32bit Pi4. That worked but didnt give me access to the OS which I want.
So, I then installed it in a Python virtual environment. This gave me what I wanted but didnt have the Supervisor option. When I started looking at installing the Supervisor I discovered that the long-term plan is to discontinue support for it. I assumed it was only a convenience tool so I thought OK I will not use Supervisor.
I managed to integrate my Hue lights, Sonos and weather station relatively easily without the need for Supervisor. So far so good. But…
I now want to integrate some IP cameras. There doesnt seem to be any ‘official’ integration available under Configuration | Integrations
So, my question is (without Supervisor) how should I go about integrating an ip camera based security system that can trigger automatons on camera events e.g. movement
Are there any guides for doing this?
I should also have mentioned that I know using a docker approach will still give me access to the OS, but ideally I’m looking for a way forward with the python venv installation
