iHost and iobroker

I have iobroker installed as a Docker. It works well so far. There is a workaround for restoring backups, which is important if people want to reliably use more complex configurations.
iobroker works well, I can integrate a lot of systems. One issue, though: I cannot access the device directly linked with the iHost itself. Does anyone have any idea? I read in another thread, that mqtt might be opened sometime in the future. But I’d be interested in a short term workaround.

Personally I’m not familiar with iobroker, and we have no plans on integrate with it for now.
can you privide some details on ‘access the device directly linked with the iHost itself’ ? maybe other users on this forum can help.

Hi @Teki - Thanks. In Germany the “market” (if you can call it that at this time) is pretty much split between Home Assistant and iobroker. Line Home Assistant, iobroker can also run in a docker on iHost. Bothe systems have some problems though:

Home Assistant: In docker there is no restore function for backups. Also there are no add ons. Other than that it works pretty well.

iobroker: Has full functionality, except for one thing: The system cannot access the devices connected to the iHost via Zigbee. There is no connection between the iHost hub and iobroker in the container.

In theory the iHost is a great device. But these limitations pose a problem for power users (and therefore the potential influencers for this device).
