Issues with the Frigate HA Add On

See original GitHub issue


  • I updated to the latest version available
  • I cleared the cache of my browser

Release with the issue: v0.1.4

Last working release (if known): N/A

Browser and Operating System: I’m running the Frigate add on for Hassio behind a reverse proxy, and I’ve tried accessing from both Chrome and Edge running on Windows 11.

Description of problem: While the live camera view works great, I don’t think the card is successfully communicating with the Frigate HA addon. For example, when I try to bring up the clips view on a camera, the card goes grey and shows a small exclamation point icon. The developer console gives this error message: “SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0”

And when I click “view frigate UI,” it takes me to a blank screen with the home assistant wrapper. The card pulls up “https://homeassistant.[mydomain].org/ccab4aaf_frigate/cameras/doorbellCam,” but that url doesn’t go anywhere. But if I change the Frigate URL to “http://[internal IP address]:5000,” it happily appends “/cameras/doorbellCam” and takes me to the right screen.

Javascript errors shown in the web inspector (if applicable):
