One option is to use PowerShell to just call a WebHook, but I wanted better integration and was planning on adding ZWave + Zigbee so I wanted to get USB PT working.
I switched over to VMWare Workstation as Hyper-V has no USB Passthrough and USBIP wouldn't load for me w/ azure kernel and I didn't want to rebuild kernel.
Interestingly, I was able to just "use bluetooth" without doing anything! (I love VMWare). Both my host and guest are able to see BT devices without having to disable one.
Getting BT to work in HA/Docker was another story, and I'm not 100% sure what I did, here are my notes, I'll refine next time I have to re-setup my container and can test, but I'm done testing for now!
Added to Docker-Compose:
Installed via apt:
Note: CLI into your HA installation and run the following
Note: If I paired device, it always showed as there?, so never pair device, or completely remove if you do
what got added to known_devices:
HA is not for the faint of heart! After all that, I figured adding to my automation would be easy! Well, I was using "away" but the state should be "not_home" to "home".
