I recently purchased 20, Sonoff Mini that I will be using throughout my house for light automation needs, I have watched the tutorial on how to do the Tasmota firmware updates and adding them to HomeAssistant. I will be starting soon on those
I will be needing help along the way I am sure of it, but that’s all in the future right now I would like to know what would be a good starting ground for the hardware on which I can install HassIO on? I don’t really like the Raspberry Pi its costlier here in India and I have purchased an HP 600 G2 as the same rate as the Pi which has a Pentium G series Quad core CPU, it has 2 drives on it, a 120GB NVMe SSD and another is a 2Tb 2.5inch HDD.
I am thinking about following the Debian install guide from here: Installing Home Assistant Supervised on Debian 10 and installing HassIO
I also have 1 Security Camera that I would like to add to my network, I only need 1 that will be at the main entrance, I don’t want to purchase a separate NVR for this and use the same 600G2 for recording to its HDD. It wouldn’t be continuous recording only when activity is detected possibly with tensor flow if I can get it to work. The camera I have is Hikvision 4MP Dome IP Camera.
Also I would be adding AdGuard to this system as well for network wide ad blocking.
Would all of the above be too much for the PC and should I be looking to upgrade to an i5 or something? Or its probably safe and enough to put this much load on the tiny PC
