Freenas is a free and open-source network-attached storage (NAS) software based on FreeBSD and the OpenZFS file system. It is licensed under the terms of the BSD License and runs on commodity x86-64 hardware.
This has been tested on the FreeNAS 9.10. These instructions assume you already have a running and accessible jail. For more information on creating a jail follow the official FreeNAS 9.10.x documentation HERE. Once you have the jail follow the steps below.
Install the necessary Python Packages.
# pkg update # pkg upgrade # pkg install python35 # pkg install py35-sqlite3 # python3.5 -m ensurepip
Install Home Assistant itself.
# pip3 install homeassistant
Finally start Home Assistant.
# hass --open-ui
Some suggestions on using a tmux to keep it running can be found in the FreeNAS forums HERE
