My server died, at a cross road

Cupertino, July 27, 2023

Good morning,


Sad day, I woke up to a power surge and my HOOBS and Scrypted install are gone... 2011 iMac is fried... 58 devices offline :/


While I will reinstall HOOBS and Scrypted for some crap I can't replace yet, I'm wondering if I shouldn't leverage Prime Day for new native homekit/matters dimmers.


I need 19 dimmers, 2 fan control switch, 5 switches and 3 smart plugs. All of these are Leviton and by luck I have 3 others that are more recent and run homekit. I'm wondering if I should keep going with Leviton? What would be your choice?

Edit: I don’t need to be told I should invest in UPS, backup server, etc…. If I did not it’s because I did not had the money to spend on that - i actually went server less until I switched to HomeKit and recycled an old PC.
