I ran into this error on Home Assistant Container, on Docker.
Failed to start Bluetooth: [org.bluez.Error.NotReady] Resource Not Ready
To resolve this, I opened a terminal into my Home Assistant Container, using Portainer and ran the following command
bluetoothctl power on
Unfortunately, each time I restarted my Home Assistant container, the problem came back, so I had to find a way to make it persistent. The solution I came up with was to run this command automatically in my Docker Compose yaml file when the container restarted.
You can do this with the command… command. Take a look at this sample of my Docker Compose file.
homeassistant: container_name: home-assistant image: homeassistant/home-assistant:stable volumes: - /opt/hass/config:/config - /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro - /run/dbus:/run/dbus:ro privileged: true command: /bin/bash -c "bluetoothctl power on && hass -c /config/" environment: - TZ=Europe/London restart: always network_mode: host
This will run the bluetoothctl power on command, and then start Home Assistant with the hass -c /config/ command.
