Domoticz and Raspbian?

Tue Dec 29, 2015 8:47 pm

Hi,

I have installed Domoticz on my PI, but I also want to use my PI for other purposes. Is it also possible to install Raspbian on the same PI?

Not precisely what you are asking for, but you can install Domoticz on Raspbian. There are good instructions at https://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Installin ... ble_Binary

Thanks! Instead of using my pi just for Domoticz I also want to use it for more than just this. So instead of using Domoticz as a primary system, I want to use is as a application in for example Noobs. So I can use both Noobs and Domoticz.

Is that possible?

NOOBS is an installer / chooser it is not an Operating System ;)


In NOOBS installer / chooser it is feasible to add a custom Operating System, read the manual here:

The Domoticz download is here:

@fruitoftheloom, you are right. I want to use Raspbian as my primary operating system, with the GUI, and install Domoticz on it.
@jbudd, is there some instruction about installing Domoticz with the GUI of Raspbian? I am sorry, but I am not really comfortable with the command line. ;)

..as I stated you make a Custom NOOBS so can have a choice of either Raspbian Jessie or Domoticz


If you install Raspbian Wheezy without using NOOBS

.........then you can install Domoticz as all the information is on the Developrs Website:

But the dollar prompt is the most comforting user interface there is! You might just get to like it.

As far as I know you have to use the command line to run the installation commands, but I don't see any reason not to use a terminal window from the GUI.

Once it is installed you can use Domoticz' web interface.
