Hello everyone, so my parents built a new house full of technology - Nest, Paradox Alarm, Smart Garage Door, Sonos, Smart Pool, etc. and they have no idea how to control everything. I want to make them easier and have it in the Homekit application that runs on the two wall-mounted iPads. I looked at HOOBS, but it's quite expensive and from what I've read, it's based on the old Pi3. There is a Windows computer running permanently for BlueIris video surveillance. This would be perfect for running homekit, but I seem to find the wrong information about it being reliable on Windows. Can I install HOOBS on Windows to take advantage of the default packages? If you suggest the Pi route, I'm based in New York and my parents are in Australia. I need to be able to configure Pi remotely somehow - can I do this remotely? Today I use RDP and VPN to get to the surveillance computer. Thanks!
