    • Manual install (with systemd service)
    • AIO/One-Step Installer
    • HASSbian Image
  • Ubuntu Server 16.04.1

Updating Home Assistant

The safest way to update Home Assistant in a production environment is to run:

hassctl update-hass && hassctl config && hassctl restart

This set of commands will update Home Assistant, run a configuration check, and then restart.

If the update fails, the configuration check will not run.

If the configuration check fails, Home Assistant will not be restarted.

If you would like to install a specific version of Home Assistant, run:

hassctl update-hass 0.43.1 (replace 0.43.1 with the version you wish to install)

Updating hassctl

To update hassctl to the latest stable version, run hassctl update-hassctl or hassctl update-hassctl master

To update hassctl to a custom branch on this repo, run hassctl update-hassctl branch-name

Usage

You can update Home Assistant using:

$ hassctl update-hass - Update Home Assistant to the latest version on PyPi

$ hassctl update-hass 0.47.0 - Update Home Assistant to version 0.47.0

You can control Home Assistant using:

$ hassctl start - Start the Home Assistant service

$ hassctl stop - Stop the Home Assistant service

$ hassctl restart - Restart the Home Assistance service

$ hassctl kill - Send a SIGKILL (-9) signal to the Home Assistant service

$ hassctl log - Follow the Home Assistant logs (errors are highlighted)
