Docker install

This document provides the necessary steps for installation of TeslaMate on a any system that runs Docker. For a walkthrough that provides the necessary steps for manual installation see Manual Install.

This setup is recommended only if you are running TeslaMate on your home network, as otherwise your Tesla API tokens might be at risk. If you intend to expose TeslaMate directly to the internet check out the advanced guides.

Requirements

  • Docker (if you are new to Docker, see Installing Docker and Docker Compose)
  • A Machine that's always on, so TeslaMate can continually fetch data
  • At least 1 GB of RAM on the machine for the installation to succeed.
  • External internet access, to talk to tesla.com

Instructions

  1. Create a file called docker-compose.yml with the following content:

    docker-compose.yml
    version: "3"

    services:
    teslamate:
    image: teslamate/teslamate:latest
    restart: always
    environment:
    - ENCRYPTION_KEY= #insert a secure key to encrypt your Tesla API tokens
    - DATABASE_USER=teslamate
    - DATABASE_PASS= #insert your secure database password!
    - DATABASE_NAME=teslamate
    - DATABASE_HOST=database
    - MQTT_HOST=mosquitto
    ports:
    - 4000:4000
    volumes:
    - ./import:/opt/app/import
    cap_drop:
    - all

    database:
    image: postgres:14
    restart: always
    environment:
    - POSTGRES_USER=teslamate
    - POSTGRES_PASSWORD= #insert your secure database password!
    - POSTGRES_DB=teslamate
    volumes:
    - teslamate-db:/var/lib/postgresql/data

    grafana:
    image: teslamate/grafana:latest
    restart: always
    environment:
    - DATABASE_USER=teslamate
    - DATABASE_PASS= #insert your secure database password!
    - DATABASE_NAME=teslamate
    - DATABASE_HOST=database
    ports:
    - 3000:3000
    volumes:
    - teslamate-grafana-data:/var/lib/grafana

    mosquitto:
    image: eclipse-mosquitto:2
    restart: always
    command: mosquitto -c /mosquitto-no-auth.conf
    # ports:
    # - 1883:1883
    volumes:
    - mosquitto-conf:/mosquitto/config
    - mosquitto-data:/mosquitto/data

    volumes:
    teslamate-db:
    teslamate-grafana-data:
    mosquitto-conf:
    mosquitto-data:
  2. Choose a secure encryption key that will be used to encrypt your Tesla API tokens (insert as ENCRYPTION_KEY).

  3. Choose your secure database password and insert it at every occurence of DATABASE_PASS and POSTGRES_PASSWORD

  4. Start the docker containers with docker-compose up. To run the containers in the background add the -d flag:

    docker-compose up -d

Usage

  1. Open the web interface http://your-ip-address:4000
  2. Sign in with your Tesla account
  3. The Grafana dashboards are available at http://your-ip-address:3000. Log in with the default user admin (inital password admin) and enter a secure password.

Update

To update the running TeslaMate configuration to the latest version, run the following commands:

docker-compose pull
docker-compose up -d
