I’m already not using it.
After some troubleshooting it seems like there’s weird stuff going on with the docker networking between the containers (each hass.io addon is a docker container). I’ve finally resolved it and now zigbee2mqtt is fully operational. I’ve finished installing all of the window sensors on various windows that are commonly left open.
I’ve also integrated all of these into hass.io and have configured duckdns so it’s easily accessible via the internet. We can’t easily use a *.hsbne.org subdomain with SSL as the portal is already taking up port 80 & 443 which means it will be a headache to get let’s encrypt working nicely. The hass.io duckdns addon talks to duckdns and let’s encrypt via their API to do DNS based verification so that’s why it works.
The zigbee repeater doesn’t seem to be powering up anymore so I’ve bought that home and I’ll do some troubleshooting. The good news is the furthest away sensors seem to work, but I think it’s very marginal as they seem to occasionally drop out. Once the repeater is in place it should improve this.
I’m going to start work on integrating these sensors into the portal so that members can easily check them when they’re packing up. I’ve also placed an order for the temp/humidity sensors that were approved the other night.
Here’s some pics of the sensors installed. Note: the sensors are intentionally mounted off centre so they’re more sensitive to a window being open.
