Its Super EASY to INSTALL SCRYPTED with Home Assistant – ONE SIMPLE ADD-ON ! The Swiss army knife to enable HomeKit Secure Video and build the ultimate high performance home video integration for your Smart Home.

Well if you didn’t know right up to May 8th 2023 – there was only an un-official scrypted add-on that was supported and updated regularly however the project is no longer maintained. 

And then thanks to this Discord announcement on May 9th 2023 – that same un-official Scrypted add-on was rolled into the official Scrypted Home Assistant Add-on.  Making this awesome platform available across the board which I Have being using since its release. Now my Smart Home will be controlled all by using a single app that is the Apple Home App and in the background will be using Home Assistant, Homebridge & Scrypted to build an affordable Smart Home. So to enable HomeKit Secure Video for my PoE Cameras – And I definitely needed Scrypted. 

And If you didn’t know – Scrypted is a high performance home video integration and automation platform. And I have done videos installing this awesome software alongside a raspberry pi running Hombridge, A Synology NAS and also a Mac computer. 

With Scrypted –  Cameras Snapshots & streams are fast, Rock solid reliability and most importantly bring HomeKit Secure Video support to cameras that don’t natively support the feature. 

Do let me know in the comments section on how your experience has been with scrypted.  

Now to run the official Add-on together with Home Assistant at a minimum you need hardware specs that meets a Raspberry pi 4 with 4 GB – anything below that – does not meet performance standard. So please take that into consideration. 

And obviously you need home assistant installed and running in your smart home. 

The best part is of this installation is that you need to paste any line of code since it’s an add-on. And together with the Home Assistant App – It gives Scrypted an app interface, update camera configuration and most important a seamless experience right from your phone or tablet. 

So without any further delay – lets setup the official Scrypted Add On.
