Home Assistant & Zone Minder


I am running Home Assistant on a dedicated rack server with Nvme card…yes I know this is criminal given that HA is capable of running on a Raspberry Pi :grinning:

The same machine is also running Zoneminder and taking live feeds from several cameras in HD stream. In the past I have found that ZM was better at handing cameras so it made sense to run HA and ZM. but off lately HA has made significant strides in adding more features like motion detection and even adding plugins for TensorFlow.

Since both HA and ZM are running on same hardware, does it even make sense to have it this way or should I remove ZM and go all alone with HA?

I’ll appreciate any constructive pros and cons on the subject since I am relatively new to both HA and ZM.
