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.

@8none1 Still on an old version of Home Assistant for that reason.

Hopefully now the new version of Debian is out, it won't be long before the Raspbian folks catch up.
