To get started you will need the following: - A Raspberry Pi, model 2, 3+, or 0W. We recommend the model 3+ for the best experience. - A power source capable of running the Pi and devices, we highly recommend at least a 2.0A AC adapter. - A MicroSD card to store operating system and software on it. - A method of setting up the Raspberry Pi, like SSH, or directly with a keyboard. - A few devices you want to control. - About 30 minutes of time for initial setup.
