I use Pi Hole for DCHP / static IP allocation, other than that you're right.



I do too. The DHCP is configurable through docker-compose. I haven't worked out the static reservations through it though. But then I only have a few.  And chances of having to configure it again are pretty low.


I'm pretty sure it'll be a config file that I could mount and define with some scripting if I needed to.


Edit: It is - in my case 04-pihole-static-dhcp.conf in /etc/pihole/dnsmasq.q. I mount that path so _could_ just set that as part of a docker-compose build section I suppose.

+one for this, I run Home Assistant OS in a VM and that includes the Supervisor add on. My first attempt at running HA was in a Docker and it was very frustrating not having the Supervisor.


You can then add Pi-Hole and Syncthing as built in integrations.



This is a much better way of articulating my point!


You can do a manual installation of Home Assistant Supervised, but the HASS OS route is much quicker / easier.


This table is quite helpful when understanding the different installation options for HASS.

Thanks @PANiCnz that's useful. It looks like if you want add-ons with a Raspberry Pi you have to use the HASS OS. I don't think I need add-ons - AirTouch and such are integrations and I can install other things directly on the Pi. So I think HASS Core installed onto the OS will do just fine, and containers will work if I decide to go that way. I'll do some container training if I get some time to see if that's what I want to do.

Yeah, I've pretty well decided on Pi OS 64 and installing core, Pi Hole, etc. Thanks all, appreciate all the help :)

I had some old SSDs - 60Gb and 120Gb - and HASS runs off that. I would recommend that over an SD card if at all possible.


The only issue is making sure your USB-SATA adapter/cable will allow you to boot from it. Some seem to take too long to be recognised by the Pi or require too much juice up front.


My HASS Pi is using an old Western Digital external 2.5 drive with the spinning disk replaced with an SSD.
