What is a home assistant

Simply put, HA, or home assistant, is a free smart home system. How is it possible that we are talking about a solution available for free? This is open source software, therefore every competent user can do something for its development. Home assistant works on various platforms and computers - primarily locally, without the need for a cloud. Hundreds and even thousands of devices integrate with HA, so you can easily develop your own smart home system by configuring a proprietary set of products, for example the Chinese company Xiaomi.

In our guides we suggest how to use this solution effectively and efficiently and what to do to maximize its potential to your needs. The popularization of knowledge on this subject is a building block for the development of the smart home idea. Many aspects related to it are still not sufficiently known in Poland.
