Introduction to Home Assistant Connection

Home Assistant is a popular open-source smart home system that supports connecting smart devices through various protocols including Zigbee, Z-wave, Bluetooh, MQTT, WIFI, and more. You can connect your Home Assistant instance to SharpTools using the SharpTools Add-on to create stunning smart home dashboards and powerful automations using the SharpTools Dashboard and Rule Engine!

Container Alternative

Home Assistant OS is the most popular way of running Home Assistant, so if you're running a typical installation, you can skip this note and proceed to the install instructions.

If you're running a containerized or "Core" installation, Add-ons are not supported by Home Assistant, but we have a container image which supports these install types. You can find details in the Container Readme or send a note to if you have any questions.

Detailed step-by-step connection instructions can be found in the How to connect Home Assistant to SharpTools article.
