Add a Pi

How to add a Raspberry Pi to your fleet

This page will show you how to add a Raspberry Pi to your PiCockpit fleet.

First, you need to navigate either to the MyPis page (you can do this by clicking on "Manage My Devices" in the sidebar) or simply by clicking "Add Pi" on the sidebar.


When configuring your Raspberry Pi installation, you need to decide on the name of your Raspberry Pi and if the script will be used for one device or multiple devices.

When you click on "Add Pi", a box will appear that will prompt you to enter a name for your device.

Please note that you'll be able to change this name later on.

The box will also ask you "Do you want to allow multiple uses of the installation script/command?" If you are not sure, then we recommend leaving the box checked.

That leaves you the option of using it again if you decide to.


Once you have finished with configuration, it might prompt you for reauthentication.

This depends on whether or not you have ever logged in with a password or if you have only logged in with Facebook or Google.


It will then inform you that a secret key has been created.

Now you can decide if you would like to copy and paste our installation command to go through the installation without user input.

Otherwise, you can download the script and then follow our installation instructions here
