Anyone aware of this initiative? Looks like someone wants to make a profit on Homeassistant…
Not techically a profit because they’re selling hardware with pre-installed software…
But I agree the instructions should be easier, like
- Get a Raspberry Pi for $40, a SD card for $10, a SD card USB adapter for $11, an ethernet cable for $7, and a power supply for $15.
- Download the image and the image writer. Launch balenaEtcher, plug the SD card in to your computer, and write the image.
- Plug the SD card into your Raspberry Pi. Plug the ethernet cable into your router and the Raspberry Pi. Plug the power supply into your outlet and the Raspberry Pi.
- Wait for ~20 minutes while it sets up Home Assistant for the first boot, and then go to http://homeassistant.local:8123/ to start setup!
