Running

Application

You can run the application from the shortcut in your start menu / applications called System Bridge.

Linux

Linux users can also run the application from the terminal. This is useful for debugging and reporting startup issues.

systembridge

Autostart

To enable autostart, open settings via the system tray icon, enable autostart and click the save icon. The application will now be added to startup.

No GUI / Headless

If you want to run the application without a GUI, you can use the following command:

systembridge --no-gui

Systemd Service

Here is an example systemd service. This runs as root, so you will need to have run the install commands as root for this to run.

[Unit]
Description=System Bridge
After=network.target

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/bin/systembridge --no-gui
Restart=on-abort
RemainAfterExit=yes

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

API Key

The api-key is essential to connect to the API/WebSocket. You can copy this using the tray menu, or reading the logs after starting the application (useful if running headless or with --no-gui).

You can also use the CLI which is provided by the systembridgecli package which you will need to install Python first before

python -m pip install --upgrade systembridgecli
python -m systembridgecli api-key

To reset your api-key, run this command:

python -m systembridgecli api-key --reset
