I was running hass.io in a raspberry 2, but it has already bricked me 2 micro sd after running for around 3 months each. I have a Mac mini that is running Plex 24/7 so I might as well run Home Assistant in it.
What are the pros and cons of installing directly to the Mac (pip3 install homeassistant) vs installing through docker vs any other method???
Other considerations: I am using an Aeotec Z-Stick (USB) to access Z-wave device. Can the configuration be restored simply by copying the files to the config directory?
