RPi 2

  • Any reason why I shouldn’t repurpose a RPi 2 that I have laying around do run openLuup? I know a lot of people seem to be using v3.


  • I don't see why not. Note that there are two revs of the rPi2. The old one is much slower (about equivalent to the eZLO plus) than the newer one but openLuup should run just fine on either.

  • Yes, speed is not an issue, or anything else, really. I had openLuup running quite happily on a much-loved Arduino Yun board (Arduino + SOC running OpenWRT.) Ran all my stuff perfectly for many months. If you've seen any of the graphs of CPU / memory, you'll see it's a very small load. A basic openLuup system uses less resources than a single plugin on Vera.

  • Thanks guys I’ll give it a shot.

  • Do, please, let us know how you get on!
