Forums : Best Hardware or controller for DIY?
This page last changed on Jun 22, 2015 by mikedpitt420.
I've read the WIKI page and scanned some forums here, and I don't seem to be coming up with it. I have an unRAID NAS, and there is a gorgeous docker plugin that's available that I can run OpenRemote with. I saw the WIKI page had the Alix board, which would be a great choice, if it weren't for the system specs. Is there another small footprint integrated board now recommended or in high use that you all would recommend? Or if I could just run OpenRemote on my unRAID NAS with some type of USB controller that would be fantastic! Sorry for being such a n00b in this field, but I'd love to dive in and am just looking for a bit of direction. I like the idea of housing this in it's own box, and backing it up both the data, and with a large UPS (especially if it's going to control things like door locks and security lights or possibly a security camera system). What are all of you currently using? Can I just basically take an old recycled dell optiplex or something similar with a few GB of RAM and a dual or quad core processor with a zwave interface or something in it? I'm looking to have an actual server for my automation, but save as much money in the process that I can.
Thanks for any help in advance!
