    Peter Cook

    North Shields, United Kingdom

    Not only am I impressed with HA, the simplicity of this unit makes setup much easier than something like Pi. Everything is built in and it seems very reliable during the months I’ve used it. Would highly recommend.

    E Green

    United Kingdom

    An excellent "out of the box" solution that has upgraded the system seamlessly, providing a future-proof platform.
    Many legacy devices have transferred and monitoring of each has vastly improved as multiple dashboards can easily be created using the pre-installed Home Assistant software.

    Brian Day

    United Kingdom

    A truly great product. This is my first use of Home Assistant, and having an 'all in one' hub made sense for simplicity. In summary, a great effort and well worth buying if you're considering switching to Home Assistant.
