Casa Node vs Raspberry Pi


#1

Hey there folks and peeps,

lately I discovered some YT testing the Casa Node. But if you look at the description, Casa Node is also running on an Raspberry Pi 3+, which is about 35$… So did you heard of any experience where the Casa Node is better than a DIY Lightning Node?
I can build the same thing for 150$…

Casa Node is for people that don’t want to deal with the installation themselves and don’t want to wait for the node to sync (Casa pre-syncs everything). But of course, everything is cheaper to do from scratch, some people don’t want to mess around with hardware and don’t enjoy the headache of building everything from scratch while others like it :slight_smile:
