Hi all out there.
I have a few considerations which I like to sort out. I started to do some home automation with Sonoff stuff. I was/am quite happy with what these guys have been cooking. Cheap an reliable but in term of interfacing rather limited. So somehow I got onto HA. At first sleepless nights for a few temperature graphs but by now 6 months later I am comfortable with the HA environment. I feel super nerdy actually but by now I have made an alarm system, I monitor the performance of the solar heating of my pool, I have my floor heating online, I am saving money on electricity (quite considerable), I monitor and control my irrigation system ( btw I try to link a Sonoff th10 with a capacitive moisture sensor, newest project) and I control my network and performance of my raspberry PI4 with 64gb card. Here some screenshot for the feel:
Overall I am quite happy but it’s all stacking up which raised the question if it would make sense to upgrade my platform to a HA Blue. But before I do so I have a few questions on which I am gathering some insights:
1). Would a HA Blue be better and faster then a Raspberry PI4? Would it be worth the change?
2)How do you actually move all the software from the Raspberry to the HA Blue?
3) Is 64GB enough or would it make sense to go beyond and move to 128 or even 256Gb
All in all what would be ideal or optimal platform to run HA on?
Thanks guys, really looking forward to your ideas and guides on this.
