@artfulsodger I imagine that it does, but I'm already running Raspbian on my Pi4 and I don't want to have to blow it away and start again.

@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. :)

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.
