I am new to this, and I am looking to start fresh. I am looking for hardware recommendations. I am a Linux/Java guy by profession, so I was a little put off by reading that Z-Wave will not work on a 64bit implementation.
I was looking at the RPi3 but that is 64bit.
I am looking to just start with lights, but want to move to home security, video surveillance for the house, etc… Will the RPi handle that? Or should I look into a dedicated desktop for this?
I am looking for a minimum viable setup, but also one that can expand for the whole house.
