Hello, I am very new to HA and my current plan is to install HAOS with proxmox for a house of devices, plus some cameras setup with frigate using a google coral USB which i have already.
I was leaning towards getting a mini pc- such as one of the countless options from beelink, but am a bit overwhelmed in the selections and what is really important. If i go this route i am not sure which models to focus on.
I also am not sure if this is the best long term option. I am located in the US - and would like to spend around 500 at most.
A few other comments on this…
-It looks like AMD mini pcs are cheaper, is there any concerns with compatibility i should be concerned on? I seem to see intel recommended more often.
-Is this a good option if i want to get this hardware now and not change it for a while? I would like to not have to replace this for a couple years.
-for video i record - would i need to use a separate device to store on, or could i just install a second drive into the mini pc? Is there any concerns with this plan?
-if a mini PC makes sense for my case above, is there specific models of beelink or other around my pricepoint that are highly recommended?
Please let me know any specific recommendations you have for me.
