at the moment I am useing HomeKit with Homebridge for my home automatisation. Furthermore I am using the ConBee2 USB Stick for my Zigbee Devices (Hue and Aquara), Shellys and Zwave (aeotec z stick gen5 via Domoticz). Everything is installed on a Raspberry pi 4 4GB.
Now I want to change everything to HomeAssistant and therefore I want to use HassOS. But I have a few questions:
1.) I want to Install everything on an USB SSD Stick ( SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB Solid State USB-Flash-Laufwerk USB 3.1). Is that a problem for HassOS? Do I only have to burn the image to the USB Stick instead of the SD-Card?
2.) Which HassOS version should I use? 5.5 or 4.17? And 32 or 64 bit? I have read, that with 64bit the GPIO Pins are not working at the moment.
3.) How much effort is it to update from a HassOS version to a newer one (eg. from 4.17 to a upcoming stable version of v5)? Are all settings from the addons saved?
Thank you in advance!
