so I got AutoStart working, and Termux to start up with sshd and homeassisant. And it works great. Thank you for your help so far.
However, there’s another quirk I noticed. As I mentioned, the whole point of this was to be able to ensure that I can ssh into my device, while not necessarily being tethered to it (like being able to sit outside with my laptop when the weather is nice, and leave it connected/powered where it is). So whenever I use ssh and login, it goes through the process of starting up everything, which then restarts homeassistant, meaning that the front end has to reload. I wanted Termux to run the scripts upon SYSTEM BOOTUP, not every time I open an ssh terminal. I used pm2 in the bashrc as suggested. Did I do something incorrectly? Or do I not understand something?
It isn’t the end of the world if I can’t address this. Unless there are potential issues with restarting homeassistant that often (as I think this seems to be doing).
