I’m using Jeedom for several years now. Using it with official box, Raspberry, Synology… I wanted to write down some notes, especially things I’ve done in order to find them if one day I needed them.

Here are additional stuffs I’m using:

  • A GSM USB key (Huawei E3372)
  • An Elero USB key (Elero Transmitter Stick)
  • A Z-Wave key (Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5)


After Jeedom install, here are the Debian packages I needed:

apt-get update
apt-get install usbutils certbot python3-certbot-dns-cloudflare etckeeper usb-modeswitch libusb-dev

TLS with Let’s encrypt

I’m using Let’s encrypt to get a valid TLS. I’m using Cloudflare for a DNS challenge, so we need to enable ssl on Apache:

a2enmod ssl
a2ensite default-ssl

Add your cloudflare config in /etc/letsencrypt.cloudflare:

dns_cloudflare_email = xxx
dns_cloudflare_api_key = xxx

Generate the certificate:

certbot certonly --dns-cloudflare --dns-cloudflare-credentials /etc/letsencrypt.cloudflare -d

Then edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl.conf and update those lines to target your let’s encyrpt certs:

SSLCertificateFile	/etc/letsencrypt/live/<>/fullchain.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/<>/privkey.pem

Reload apache2 config:

systemctl reload apache2

Add this as a crontab to auo-renew cert:

*/6 * * * * /usr/bin/certbot renew --quiet --post-hook "systemctl restart apache2" > /dev/null 2>&1


Here is my key:

$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 12d1:155e Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

I had to create this file /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/12d1:1f01 with this content:


Then to get my GSM tty in /etc/udev/rules.d/99-usb-serial.rules:

SUBSYSTEM=="tty", ATTRS{idVendor}=="12d1", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1f01", SYMLINK+="ttyGSM"


That’s it :)
