Best home automation solution

A friend of mine got me interested, I delayed cause I was using Smarthings and wanted to get more out of my investment. But after moving to Home assistant everything in my home is automated it works flawlessly the app is great excellent service.

One caveat you have to have a lot of computer skills a lot of programming understanding and quite a bit of technological competence to set it up, but if you meet that criteria there’s nothing better than a Home Assistant.

Great Home Assistant app!

I love this app. For anyone looking into home control and home automation, Home Assistant is an open source (free) platform for control and automation of all your devices. This iOS app is the mobile companion that gives you access to all the same views and features as you'd have while at home. With frequent updates and ample support, you can't go wrong. A huge thanks to the developers that put their time into this!! Great app!!

An awesome app to compliment awesome open-source home automation!

Very well made, allowing for both easy and advanced configuration for notifications, location tracking, and control. You will have to get your hands dirty setting up a Home Assistant controller in your home, but I highly recommend it. There are a lot of great things you can customize and automate if willing to learn.
