    Will my HS4 Pro License work if I want to build a HS4 Pi?

    I haven't looked into running homeseer on the pi much at all, but I'm thinking about it for a really remote part of my property. I've got 2 HS4 Pro licenses and am using 1. Can I activate the Pi HS4 with the same license or does it need a different one? Does anyone know?

    No, you can't use a "full" HS4 Pro license on an RPI unless you load a full Linux install on that RPi. The HST HS4Pi image requires a RPi license.

      I've been running HS4 Pro on a RPi for years. Install HS4 pro and enter your license and it should be fine.

        I will add that HS4 (pro version) is very happy on a Pi4 2GB. I moved my config to one and it ran nearly as fast as on my Windows 10 Xeon server. I was impressed. Unfortunately, several plug-ins I count on will not work under Linux.

          I think it will depend. I tried to move my HomeSeer instance to a RPI 4B 8GB and it turned out that there was no sufficient CPU power.

              Interesting. I didn’t see a problem, but I only ran it a day or so. If Ultra’s 3 plug-ins would run under Linux I would have run it longer. CPU is definitely more impacted than memory by HS. I’ve tried to run my configuration on an Intel Atom and a VM, both being painfully slow on the Event management page. The Pi4 was almost as snappy as my i7 equivalent Xeon server.

                I think the issue is that I have hundreds of devices that are updated every 10 seconds.
