U mean home assistant. Probably the most powerful and capable but very difficult to work withI’ve been slowly integrating my smart home devices. It’s hard to find products that integrate with HomeKit natively. From what I have read the encryption is a bastard to work with. That’s a plus for me. There is a raspberry pi setup you can build, can’t recall the name, basically it will bridge not HomeKit devices with HomeKit. It does all the heavy lifting. I am still considering it. I have other projects right now I’m trying to finish before the next semester starts. So it needs to wait.
home kit stuff has to pass apple’s bullshit. But as a result of that bullshit, the experience setting up is simplified as hell.
get a home pod mini. This way u can use apple’s Thread.
