I went through a lot of documents on how to install home assistant and where to install it.
Right now it’s running as a VM on hyper-v , I was thinking to move it to wither a raspberry pi 4 (I have one for that) or to an old computer with an i7 processor. The reason I want to move it is because I want to be able to use usb dongles for zigbee and zwave, and as you may know hyper-v doesn’t support that.
My question is it worth it to install it on the old i7 computer? Or raspberry pi 4 is enough? I don’t want to struggle with performance, but I don’t want to have something overkill either.
From what I’ve read, if you install it on your own on a computer, you will have to deal yourself with all packages install and update, while on a raspberry pi it’s all handled by the image.
Any insight or help is appreciated.
