Backend Services


Container based services I am currently using:


InfluxDB - Time series database

Current: Long term storage for relevant Home Assistant data, ex. weather, power, etc.


MQTT - Eclipse Mosquitto - IoT Messaaging

Current: transports windows device data to Home Assistant using IoTLink. Plan to use this with RTL-SDR and other devices in due time.


pgAdmin - GUI/Tools for PostgreSQL


Portainer - Container management

Current: My preferred container management tool, though typically SSH after making edits to docker compose files.


PostgreSQL - Database

Current: using as DB for Home Assistant, Nextcloud, Kanboard…and wallabag when it is running


Traefik - Reverse proxy
