I have HASSOS installed directly on a Dell Wyse thin client. I have SSH access using a CONFIG labeled USB and authorized keys.
I have an APC UPS directly connected to the HASS OS machine via USB and the UPS is recognised under Settings > System > Hardware, and through lsusb.
I want to view sensor statistics for the connected UPS in home assistant and set automations and notifications on run time and power outages.
All the guides I have found use nut-server running on a different machine (e.g. Synology). I already have the UPS directly connected to HASSOS so how can I run nut-server directly so then I can configure the NUT integration?
The commands apt install nut nut-client nut-server (including apt-get) do not work.
How do I go about installing nut-server?
Thank you in advance.
You are running HA OS. You can’t install other software on the system. That is what add-ons are for.
Install and configure the NUT addon. https://github.com/hassio-addons/addon-nut
Then install and configure the NUT integration. https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/nut/
Thank you. I kept getting Addon not found when I clicked to add the NUT addon in the past (but I had other HACS addons installed and running). Somehow the required repository went missing.
I am now successful in integrating with NUT and getting sensor data.
Finally, I found this thread with the proper sequence of installing the add-on first followed by the integration. I now have NUT up and running for my old APC-1000XL with the network 9606 card.
How do I mark this as the solution, so others can find it and help them save lots of time and frustration?!
