Metallic UI Update - My new UI is based on SilvrrGit's Home Assistant Config. So beautiful. Thank you Adam!
Here's my Home Assistant configuration. I have installed HA on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with a Transcend High Endurance 32GB MicroSD Card using the HassIO option. I figured that I honestly dont need to invest too much in hardware as the RPi is powerfull enough for my needs right now. Once my CPU spikes and load starts to increase, I'll probably upgrade to an Intel NUC or similar. Specially when I automate using facial recognition etc.
I feel the icing on the cake in my config is InfluxDB and Grafana for generating deep insights into my home. From the day's energy profile, to yearly solar surplus generation, to room temperatures, and an internet speed history graph. It's amazing how light weight InfluxDB really is. And remember, it's running on a shared $35 Raspberry Pi. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants to capture any IoT sensor data over time.
I maintain my configuration files almost every other week to keep up with the latest from HA.
