I’ve been trying to find a Pi zero W but it’s very hard to find in stock/ buy a Pi right now with the chip shortage. I’ve looked ,but, for example, Im not spending $50 at amazon or ebay for a $15 pi. So I was wondering if I could use one of my non wifi Pi’s laying around.
I have an original Pi (with 2 usb ports instead of 4.) Can u use this one since it has similar power draw to a Zero? How can I change the relay GPIO pins for the smaller 26 Pin vs 40 pin Connector?
Lucky my thermostat is on the other side of the wall from my network closet; so running a ethernet cable would be very easy. How / what do I need to modify and edit to get Hestia Pi top use the ethernet jack vs Wifi?
And it’s not absolutely necessary, but I also have a small 5" touchscreen I was going to use for a home assistant interface. It’s HDMI and USB. Can I Use this or am I stuck having to buy the 3.5" screen? Again what would I need to modify software wise to use this option? Im guessing just not install the display driver and install the USB driver is instead?
Thank you in advance.
