Thx for your reply and my apologies as I am new to this community.
The fact I use Hassio is because it is seemingly the optimised version for the rpi4 as to youtube videos.
So my correct question should be, after having read your email. :
- Due to Hardware differences in the RPI4 and the RPI400 will the Home assistant OS install with no problems on the RPI400 ?
Insight to your question follows :
From the different Youtube videos it seams their are 3 ways of using home assistant in rpi4
- Home assistent running on some form of native os delivered with the system
- Home assistent in a Docker container ( if I understand correctly I was in the windows/mainframe world so to me this sounds like a virtual machine )
- Hassio the optimised version that you install directly on a fresh pi with no OS
As I stated in my request I am installing a KNX ( within the next 2 months ) system in my new home in construction.
Some Items like for instance My TESLA or the Unify network modules do not have KNX functionality, I therefore am looking to integrate the whole in a single visualisation.
Home assistant could be that visualisation as it has Add-ons for KNX, TESLA, UNIFY etc… whether I will need a server on the KNX side Like EIPC2 or GIRA X1 for scenes is to be seen or if a simple IP gateway could do if the Raspberry PI4 or 400 would be fast enough.
I understand that the P400 has some hardware missing and thus is not the 100% same so the kernel you install might not run hence the question to perform the correct buy for my needs.
The p400 would be ideal as no remote access required, runs cool so no overheating if left 24/24/7/365 you can leave it in the rack with immediate access.
But for your question : search for hassio as lot of video refer to and you get this
Thx and if you could answer my P400 question, will Home assistant OS install on a P400 , I would greatly appreciate and go ahead and by the correct version.
