i currently install a smarthome in a house of a friend. KNX is running already.
He now wants to have a smarthome server and so i will install openhab.
He has a Synology DS218+. This is powerful to run openhab - no need for an additional raspberry.
What is the “best” way to install it on this NAS?
Packet-Install directly on Synology? I often saw threads with errors when updating openhab.
Docker-Installation - also not “standard” - maybe complicated when i will do an update
Installation in a virtual debian/ubuntu vm? Standard openhab installation, all updates will work…
This is my opinion, can anybody say something about this? Is this a good decision or would you advice me to to it another way?
(In my own house i run openhab on an esxi server with a debian vm.)
