Running MM simultaneously with Home Assistant and Pihole on one Pi



  • Hey guys,

    I would like to set up MM on a Pi which simultaneously runs Pihole (DNS via WiFi, so LAN-Cable is not an issue) and Home Assistant with a ConBee II stick. Eventually I would like to get a CLU-Stick at some point to run additional automation and make my blinds smart.

    As I currently do only have a borrowed pi from a friend which runs HomeBridge and Pihole, I will need to get a new Pi regardless. So the questions in charge are:

    • Does it make sense to run all on one or could the mirror glass block the ConBee and CLU sticks from properly sending?
    • If it makes sense, what Pi do you recommend?
    • If it does not make sense and I will only run MM on the Pi, which one should I get in this case?

    Thanks and regards,
    Feedy88



  • any luck with any progress?

    euh… it’s just a Pi not an PC …configuration needed a lot of Ram … so min a RPI4 4Gb is needed
    personnaly, I execute Pihole in separate pi (RPI3B+) and Mirror with RPI4 2Gb
    But never I will use it in the same RPI
