Hey everyone, I am curious to find out what hardware everyone is running . Been debating on moving my setup over to a Pi and been looking at https://www.crowdsupply.com/nabu-casa/home-assistant-yellow#products for a base to work with.
Take control of your home as never before.

I want to get the PoE version but also having a hard time finding Raspberry Pi 4s

I went ahead and pre-ordered the Yellow with PoE. I finally was able to find a Computer Pi 4.
If you have a lot of radios (zigbee, zwave, Bluetooth, etc) it gets them off of the built in ports on the RPI.
For me, I prefer a powered hub like this one - https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Charging-Individual-Switches-Extension/dp/B07G8CMR18/r where I can inject power, and the current draw doesn’t have to come from my PRI
I like how many ports it has.
Plus the individually addressable power switches.
Do you use this one?
the only reason i chose it was it also came with a USBC cable which i can plug into my my mac
