    Personally here with first RPi version of Homeseer 3 (Linux) moved it to Ubuntu Linux first day of use. It ran great and never went back to using the RPi for Homeseer.

    I do have a few RPi's around the house today. IE: RPi's used for NOAA satellite maps downloader, Lightning sensor, Nut servers (for UPSs) and ZNet like RPi in the attic.

    Here using a Lenova Tiny M900 / 32Gb RAM / i5 purchased refurbished (looks new to me) with new Windows 10 Pro on it for less than $100 USD plus shipping.

    Homeseer is running in Ubuntu and a Windows VB here. Home Assistant in another VB.

    I am still in the process of migration here. I have been doing this same stuff with the HS3 server.

      Likewise I gave up on RPi after trying the most powerful version (RPi4) with most RAM (8GB) . Can you please share what hardware and what particular version of OS (Linux flavor) do you use for running HS4 with reasonable speed. I don't want to reinvent the wheel. I'll appreciate it if you share your experience. I have about 2000 devices and 1000 events in HS4 plus half dozen plug-ins.
