I am very new to the world of home automation so I have some very basic tinkering skills. I have recently flashed all my sonoff devices to Tasmota and wanted to give Home Assistant a go. I bought a news Raspberry Pi but on installing Hassbian - I realised that I could not really use my Pi for anything else…does Hassbian need an entire Pi? Is there any other way around this?
I wanted to use the Pi for OpenVPN and other smaller projects.
Hope you could assist me - I am sure that this has been asked before, if you could point me the right direction, I would be super grateful.
