Waveshare POE Hat

Hi Guys,
I’ve bought a Waveshare POE Hat Board for my raspberry 4. Is there a way to get the display and temperature control working?

On normal pi OS I have to install some libraries and edit a config file.

Thank you in advance



I put together an addon for this… https://github.com/reschix/Waveshare-PoE-HAT-B-Home-Assistant-Addon

Damn, just as I switched to a intel Nuc with proxmox :sob:

Works perfect. I use

for the I2C configuration and after that I use @reschix Addon.

One question, is there a way to flip the display? Just cosmetics, I’m fine with the results so far.

im running in to some issues with this addon. I have a Raspberry Pi 4 (8GB) with the Home Assistant OS 11.2 and the Waveshare PoE HAT (B).
I also used the Addon from “adamoutler” GitHub - adamoutler/HassOSConfigurator: A set of Add-Ons to configure HassOS For various platforms and development purposes. to configure I2C.
When i Start the Waveshare PoE HAT (B) addon i receive the following Error message;

Failed to start add-on

Can’t start addon_f0c9c8df_poe_hat: 400 Client Error for http+docker://localhost/v1.43/containers/7a4bf223380750ef9da5b117a1eb06e93a52832e48c795eef0adeebbc906261d/start: Bad Request (“failed to create task for container: failed to create shim task: OCI runtime create failed: runc create failed: unable to start container process: exec: “/bin/sh”: stat /bin/sh: no such file or directory: unknown”)

Can you please help me to solve the issue?
