Want to add z-wave but might not have USB port

I have a working Home Assistant running on a virtual machine. I’m not very sure how well USB devices work on Virtual Machines. So maybe I’m better off to find something that can bridge z-wave to Ethernet.

If it matters, the VM is Virtual Box running on a 2014 vintage Mac Mini. The Mini has an Intel i3 inside with 8GB of RAM and a small SSD. These are great platforms and sell for used for about $150.

Will a zooz USB dongle work, or do I want an Ethernet z-wave hub?

I want to add about 20 zooz switches.
