Homebridge requires full access to your local network to function correctly which can be achieved using the
--net=host flag. This image will not work when using Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows due to this and this.
docker run --net=host --name=homebridge -v $(pwd)/homebridge:/homebridge oznu/homebridge:ubuntu
Using Docker Compose (recommended):
version: '2' services: homebridge: image: oznu/homebridge:ubuntu restart: always network_mode: host environment: - PGID=1000 - PUID=1000 - HOMEBRIDGE_CONFIG_UI=1 - HOMEBRIDGE_CONFIG_UI_PORT=8581 - TZ=Canberra/Australia volumes: - ./volumes/homebridge:/homebridge
The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side.
--net=host- Shares host networking with container, required
-v /homebridge- The Homebridge config and plugin location
-e PGID- for group id - see below for explanation
-e PUID- for user id - see below for explanation
-e TZ- for timezone information e.g.
-e HOMEBRIDGE_CONFIG_UI=1- Set to
0to disable the Homebridge UI.
-e HOMEBRIDGE_CONFIG_UI_PORT=8581- The port to run the Homebridge UI on. Defaults to port 8581.
Sometimes when using data 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 the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work".
In this instance
PGID=1001. To find yours use
id user as below:
$ id <dockeruser> uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)
This image comes with the Homebridge UI pre-installed and is the easiest way to manage all aspects of Homebridge.
To manage Homebridge go to
http://<ip of server>:8581 in your browser. For example,
http://192.168.1.20:8581. From here you can install, remove and update plugins, modify the Homebridge config.json and restart Homebridge.
The default username is
admin and the default password is
libfdk-aac audio support is included in this image.
Some plugins don't like Alpine Linux so this project also provides a Ubuntu based version of the image.
docker run oznu/homebridge:ubuntu
