Upgrade to new hardware!


#1

I’ve seen several people move to an Intel nuc, but felt the price / performance to be a little high.
i settled on a gigabyte 4105

$139
8 gb crucial ddr4 mem

$55
512 GB m.2 ssd
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M3Z3UC2
$65
Total cost $261 (at the time of my purchase)

running hass (HA not hass.io) on a vanilla debian 9 install, with node-red for automation, mysql for the db and grafana for dashboards

big upgrade from my rpi3 :slight_smile:

anyway, putting the info out there in case anyone was looking to move to a nuc… here is an alternative way to go that i can recommend.

If you wanted some additional Home Assistant scripting. you could have installed the Hassbian scripts on your Debian install.

Just another option. I tested in a VM.
