I am new to HA but I am familiar with linux. I have just purchased a z-wave USB stick and a few z-wave+ devices and was experimenting HA with it. I do have a spare RPI3 but I found it to be too slow, thus I am experimenting with running HA on Armbian with a Amlogic S912 tv box (8-core, 2GB RAM with 1gbit ethernet). The base linux I am using is balbes150’s armbian (https://forum.armbian.com/topic/7930-armbian-for-amlogic-s9xxx-kernel-5x/), the flavour of which is Debian Buster. After a clean-install to the SD card, I installed HA using armbian-configuration->Software->Softy, which installs HA through Docker.
It is much faster than RPI3. However, there is no z-wave sub-menu under configuration menu. I followed the advice here (https://www.home-assistant.io/docs/z-wave/control-panel/), and installed the “configurator” add-on. The configuration.yaml on both RPI3 (with z-wave submenu) and on armbian (without z-wave submenu) are identical:
# Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc) default_config: # Uncomment this if you are using SSL/TLS, running in Docker container, etc. # http: # base_url: example.duckdns.org:8123 # Text to speech tts: - platform: google_translate group: !include groups.yaml automation: !include automations.yaml script: !include scripts.yaml scene: !include scenes.yaml
My questions are:
- where in RPI3 does it store the information about USB path to the ZooZ USB stick if it is not in configuration.yaml? I do recall that, during the initial setup on RPI3, I had manually specify the USB path via web-gui,
- on armbian/S912, do I simply add the following line to configuration.yaml:
zwave: usb_path: /dev/ttyACM0 device_config: !include zwave_device_config.yaml
sorry for the trivial question; it has been a long day.
