Unstable? Use HA4 with NabuCasa. Need to shut down power and restart several days. Any familiar?

Hi, still new and also a bit confused. My system can be down and not reacable from remote UI (NabuCasa) from evening one day. Next day it´s reachable again (after system power off)

Use SSD drive and have powersupply with 3A and backup battery

Logfile show this regarding printscreen, issues with power or connection?: ESPHome, AdGuard and UniFi

Is it available locally?

None of those warning messages are related to your issue. I can’t quite tell from your description, but if you’re seeing issue where your Pi is becoming unresponsive, it’s usually a power or thermal issue. If the SSD is powered from the Pi, then I recommend using a dedicated power supply for it or a powered hub. You didn’t say which Pi you’re using, but 3A is usually okay on a Pi4 with no peripherals, so you’re probably overloading it if you’re also powering peripherals from the Pi.

Usually the minimum is 3.5A with an SSD

Hi Mike and thanks for info.

I´m using Kingston SSD (5V, 1A) direct on Pi4. External powersupply (Dacota) with powerbank and 3A power to Pi. Is this causing trouble? Any solution for actual powerecuipment i need?

Thanks Rob!
I´m using SSD powered directly from the Pi. I´ve also got to antennas powered directly from Pi. Where else do i connect antennas? Nothing else connected other than ethernet cable.

There are 2 power supplies connected to the pi? I use a single 3.5a power supply with an argon case. Which ssd connector are you using?


By “antennas” do you mean dongles for ZWave/Zigbee? It’s fine to have those directly connected - the point is to avoid directly connecting devices with high power requirements like SSDs.
