Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Domoticz is a Home Automation System that lets you monitor and configure various devices like: Lights, Switches, various sensors/meters like Temperature, Rain, Wind, UV, Electra, Gas, Water and much more. Notifications/Alerts can be sent to any mobile device.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/domoticz should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Version Tags

This image provides various versions that are available via tags. latest tag usually provides the latest stable version. Others are considered under development and caution must be exercised when using them.

Tag

Description

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=domoticz \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e WEBROOT=domoticz `#optional` \
-p 8080:8080 \
-p 6144:6144 \
-p 1443:1443 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
--device <path to device>:<path to device> \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/domoticz

Passing Through USB Devices

To get full use of Domoticz, you probably have a USB device you want to pass through. To figure out which device to pass through, you have to connect the device and look in dmesg for the device node created. Issue the command 'dmesg | tail' after you connected your device and you should see something like below.

usb 1-1.2: new full-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci
ftdi_sio 1-1.2:1.0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
usb 1-1.2: Detected FT232RL
usb 1-1.2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0

As you can see above, the device node created is ttyUSB0. It does not say where, but it's almost always in /dev/. The correct tag for passing through this USB device is '--device /dev/ttyUSB0:/dev/ttyUSB0'

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

version: "2"
services:
domoticz:
image: linuxserver/domoticz
container_name: domoticz
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
- WEBROOT=domoticz #optional

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

8080

WebUI

6144

Domoticz communication port.

1443

Domoticz communication port.

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

WEBROOT=domoticz

Sets webroot to domoticz for usage with subfolder reverse proxy. Not needed unless reverse proxying.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Where Domoticz stores config files and data.

Device Mappings (--device)

Parameter

Function

<path to device>

For passing through USB devices.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

To configure Domoticz, go to the IP of your docker host on the port you configured (default 8080), and add your hardware in Setup > Hardware. The user manual is available at www.domoticz.com

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:

    • docker exec -it domoticz /bin/bash

  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:

    • docker logs -f domoticz

  • Container version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' domoticz

  • Image version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/domoticz
