i have been trying to follow your directions to no avail.
ted documentation i s
Due to my lack of knowledge and the limited and confusing documentation (and videos) i see:
I am getting frustrated and fed up with trying to install home assistant.
I am currently non vera home assistant and the only issue i have is that their geofencing is working incorrectly for me.
I have only a windows 10, windows 7, linux mint 20 and freenas as possible systems.
I tried to install debian on an HP elitebook 2170p which I am willing to leave always on.
For me it was very complicated to install and configure (i gave up)
The only reason is to have a better configuring geofencing app than vera who is currently limiting the geofence to 250 meters and remote access
I find the home assistant app limited in documentation and confusing in various youtube videos .
MY recommendations would be
that since Docker Virtual machine and virtual box can be common to Windows mac, linux debian, raspberry Pi and other then it would be simple to make HA fit in one or the other VM and that is it. There fore no one sill say that OS does not need an underlying OS
Then all the videos and blogs i cannot follow and is confusing.
I am willing to dedicate a nHP elitebook 2170p. I can install windows 10 or linux mint (i am getting quite versed in linux mint) not debian
I have the following requirements
Control media centre via amazon echo
HVAC controlled via sensors
geofencing controlled by presence and mobile phone
When home I would control it with echo or mobile app
Monitor power consumption base upon controller
and some simple scenes
all in z wave
I would like to know for my last effort
What home assistant solution i need ( in my opinion Supervised)
a simple pragmatic complete and effective step by step process on how to install HA
I thank you all for your understanding and patience with me
