Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Habridge emulates Philips Hue API to other home automation gateways such as an Amazon Echo/Dot Gen 1 (gen 2 has issues discovering ha-bridge) or other systems that support Philips Hue. The Bridge handles basic commands such as "On", "Off" and "brightness" commands of the hue protocol. This bridge can control most devices that have a distinct API.

In the cases of systems that require authorization and/or have APIs that cannot be handled in the current method, a module may need to be built. The Harmony Hub is such a module and so is the Nest module. The Bridge has helpers to build devices for the gateway for the Logitech Harmony Hub, Vera, Vera Lite or Vera Edge, Nest, Somfy Tahoma, Home Assistant, Domoticz, MQTT, HAL, Fibaro, HomeWizard, LIFX, OpenHAB, FHEM, Broadlink and the ability to proxy all of your real Hue bridges behind this bridge.

This bridge was built to help put the Internet of Things together.

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/habridge 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

Usage

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

docker

docker create \
--name=habridge \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e SEC_KEY=<Your Key To Encrypt Security Data> \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 8080:8080 \
-p 50000:50000 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/habridge

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
habridge:
image: linuxserver/habridge
container_name: habridge
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- SEC_KEY=<Your Key To Encrypt Security Data>
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- <path to data>:/config
ports:
- 8080:8080
- 50000:50000
restart: unless-stopped

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

50000

HABridge communication port.

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

SEC_KEY=<Your Key To Encrypt Security Data>

Key used to secure communication.

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Where HABridge stores config files and data.

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 set up the ha-bridge simply go to http://localhost:8080. Once you are in the webui you can add devices and configure ha-bridge to your liking.

For information on how to configure ha-bridge, go to their wiki at https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge/wiki
