I am new please help

Hi, my name is Chase B. I am new to home assistant and I am not great at anything yet. I am hoping yall can help.

I have a ubnt camera. I have added it to my config file and it showed up in home assistant. I got the camera into home kit and alexa. The only issue I have is that the live view feature is unavailable on my alexa shows. After some research, I read on the community that my home assistant instance has to be secured. I found a youtube video and installed duck dns. Now I can access home assistant throuth HTTPS and not HTTP. My page is still saying insecure even though I am https. I need to install an SSL certificate but cant figure out how.

Every resource is talking about doing this to remote into home assistant from outside the home. This thing is I am paying for this. I use the cloud to just make my life easier. I can remote in no issue. I just need an SSL guide. Please help me.

Hi Chase, take a look into the addon duckdns with let’s encrypt. it haves both https and a ssl certificate with auto renewall . it might be what you are looking for :wink:

I follow this guide on duck dns doucmentaion. I updated my config file and still not ssl. Am I missing something?
‘’## Configuration

Add-on configuration:

  accept_terms: true
  certfile: fullchain.pem
  keyfile: privkey.pem
token: sdfj-2131023-dslfjsd-12321
  - my-domain.duckdns.org
aliases: []
seconds: 300

Additionally, you’ll need to configure the Home Assistant Core to pick up the SSL certificates. This is done by setting the following configuration for the HTTP integration configuration in your configuration.yaml:

  ssl_certificate: /ssl/fullchain.pem
  ssl_key: /ssl/privkey.pem

You have to redirect ports in your router too.
Edit: If you are using Nabu Casa then there is no need of port redirection.

It still shows insecure. How do I get the SSL cert to work. I use the cloud. I should not need to touch my router. I just need the Ssl to work

I’m almost sure you do have a duckdns domain registered and not my-domain.duckdns.org.
also , you need to redirect the port 443 (https) for your home-assistant internal IP.
after those steps , you should set the external domain in the configuration - general :slight_smile: image
