Home Assistant is strange. You can't install it "normally" on a Pi because Python is too old (it wants 3.8, Raspbian has 3.7). You can install it via Docker but then you can't use Add-Ons. If you want full functionality you're really left with one choice - install their entire OS image on a dedicated Pi. For a collection of Python scripts.


@fedops Yeah, not a bad plan. I would prefer to stick with Raspbian (or Raspberry Pi OS as I think it now is) as I'm more familiar with Debian based distros. I could install Ubuntu even - I just dont wanna. :)

@8none1 I understand. 😄

Strange that they have missed quite a few updates...
