I am new to your community and have decided to give a shot in setting up picroft on a budget (the past year hasn’t been very profitable ) . I am not a computer engineer nor do I have a lot of Linux experience other than what a basic user level. I have managed so successfully set up home assistant to some extent so this gives me some confidence
I am ordering the parts from the build and was wondering if I should go with pi3b+ or pi4 2gb ram? They cost the same so I was wondering if there is an advantage of using one over the other for this? I am aiming for ease of build and maximum compatibility since I would have problems troubleshooting some advanced issues…
also I have ordered the ps3 camera microphone, but as understand the respeaker is a good budget friendly alternative (seems to be sold out everywhere at the moment)? Anything else you could recommend for a beginner?
Or should I attempt to run in on the same device as home assistant is running (pi4)? I have read through a blog by j1nx from 2018, but it seems unfinished. Though the instructions up to that seem clear.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
