Setting up

Step 1

  • Plug in your Ethernet cable and make sure it is locked into place.
  • The other end of the Ethernet cable will need to be connected to your Router or Switch and connected to the internet.
    • Note: Internet is required because the newly installed Home Assistant OS does not contain all Home Assistant components yet. It downloads the latest version of Home Assistant Core on first start.

Step 2

Power it up!
  • Connect the power to the wall and then to the Home Assistant Yellow.
