    I am looking to Setup either OpenHab or Home Assistant on RPi4 and was wondering which one is better.
    Can I run the whole system on one unit?
    I am mainly looking for something that will run on Android and iPhone mobile devices.

    Thanks in advance

    I have tried a lot of different software over the past 15 years and Home Assistant wins easily.
    The HA dev team has made huge changes over 2 years making it easier to work with, without having to learn YAML. It will run on a Pi4, but I would recommend that you get an NVMe drive and a USB adapter for it, as HA constantly writes logs (unless disabled) so SD cards don't last long.

    Have a look at Homebridge too. Similar to HA but seems to have a lot more active opensource contributors that are contributing regularly.
