Home Assistant runs locally and doesn’t rely on an internet connection or 3rd-party cloud. As an open-source download, Home Assistant runs on your chosen hub, meaning your smart home controller is yours. Of course, an internet connection is needed for remote access and outbound notifications. Home Assistant’s parent company offers an optional paid cloud service adding remote access capabilities and integration with Google & Alexa.
If you’re willing to do some legwork to build a smart home yourself, Home Assistant is made for you. Tinkers all around the world appreciate this free & open-source platform for its powerful capabilities and thousands of integrations. It also runs on your local network, not in a cloud.
Home Assistant doesn’t provide technical support because its users are encouraged to solve the problems themselves or discuss them with the passionate community of fellow DIYers. For some, it might sound like a con, but Home Assistant is simply THE home automation app for those who love advanced scripting and freedom.
