“Zvidar Smart Gateway” (Model: “Z-GW-V01”) from Shenzhen Zvidar Technologies CO., LTD in China:
Not much information to find on this new single-board computer other than what is on their website, I just stumbled upon it when found their new Zigbee dongle at https://zigbee.blakadder.com/Zvidar_Z-DG-Z01.html
I already have hardware myself but if they start selling shipping in a nice box and with a power supply for cheap then might it be something to recommend to people on a tight budget? Or is it just crap?
Anyway, the note on their website says it runs “Home Assistant” so I assume they mean that this SBC was designed to run the “Home Assistant Operating System”?
