I am a real newbie on Balena and I stumbled upon it after trying to create my own lorawan gateway. That is still ongoing but in the meantime I discovered that Balena offers a lot more and as I have another project idea, I thought that Balena might be the perfect solution. I want to combine my own home automation dashboard which runs in node-red to be displayed on a dedicated raspberry pi. It will also have an audio client with a dedicated user-interface that can play internet radio and spotify sources, also running in node-red. I have the flows ready to do that. The radio is just an html audio tag, the spotify client is a webpage in node-red which uses the web-api to control a running spotify client. This all works pretty good on an android tablet, including controlling the audio volume. My idea now is to create a new balena project based on balenaDash and add the node-red block and the sound block. Then I want to develop the flows in the project itself so they will be installed when deploying the image. An alternative would be to separate the ui and the streamer to 2 different PI’s, is that better?
I know it sounds like a long shot but I hope anyone of you can point me in the right direction whether this is the way to go. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all in advance,
