You would like to receive competent advice on your Home Assistant installation and are looking for programmers with many years of experience in the field of home automation?
Is the Raspberry Pi the right decision, or should you directly choose a "stronger" server with more power that lasts for many years?
We also provide detailed advice on other topics, such as which hardware should be used. First the question, what should the Home Assistant run on? Raspberry Pi or rather a somewhat stronger server, which can also be used as storage for collected media such as photos, videos and other files. In addition, it can also be used as an automatic backup server for MacBook, laptop and PC as well as for smartphone and tablet.
Zigbee, Z-Wave, EnOcean or something else? There are now countless smart home standards, which is the right one for your project?
Besides expensive and cheap, there are also a few other features that should be considered. For example, the range, the setting options, the energy consumption, the design, the sustainability and the availability. But before that, of course, there is the question of whether a wired system shouldn't be used because of the reliability. Or should I perhaps go for several standards and thus get the best of all worlds?
Home Assistant works locally and completely without a cloud. But how can you then access it securely "from outside", i.e. outside your network?
Again, we have a variety of different methods available. Some require you to open a port on your router, which is usually a bigger security risk. Because no one should know your IP address from your network at home. DDoS and other common attacks from the Internet can now be implemented with just a few clicks and could one day make your life miserable.
Make your network as secure as possible. We will show you how.
Home Assistant represents a foundation and can be expanded with add-ons that fit your personal needs.
Would you like a little more? Do you want to add a password manager, multimedia control, backup system and media server? No problem - coming right away! Or, if you wish, a byte later.
Independent of manufacturer
Many manufacturers, even more brands and all have one goal: Smart Home
We help you find the right manufacturer for your individual project. Sustainability, durability and functionality are now more in the foreground than the "cheap is cool mentality".
With Home Assistant, you are already on target. You can combine every standard with each other and get the most out of it. The stability of a wired KNX system, the flexibility of a wireless standard like Z-Wave and Zigbee and the fun China Christmas lights for seasonal reasons. Let me mention here again all cloud free also the super affordable products from the far east.
HomeKit, Alexa, Cortana, Bixby or would you prefer open source?
One prefers Apple, the other Android and again the next one relies completely on open source without cloud connection. Fortunately, we cover all areas and can thus offer you customized solutions!
Various providers one App
The market is full of solutions - We bring them all together in one place
Do you still keep track of the various smart home providers? When you can already buy "smart" to go in the biggest furniture store, home improvement store and well-known discounters? Probably not. But selling all smart devices now and relying on the new Matter standard, which simplifies everything, doesn't make sense either. We can accommodate everything this way, too! (Market launch still unknown and postponed several times).
Eye pleasing Dashboards
With Home Assistant, you can create really great interfaces. Depending on the user, this can be used to design custom dashboards and gain acceptance from all other family members, from young to old.
Google Nest Hub Dashboard
In this example, you can see a Google Nest Hub with an interface for use in a room. All important controls on a 7 inch (17.78 cm) display. When the doorbell rings, an additional window automatically opens with the current live image and the possibility to interact with the visitor.
Here is a nice article about the project on Grafana.com
Smart home for seniors and relatives
A smart home must be obliging and, for example, switch on the light automatically in the event of darkness and movement. The exact requirements are as individual as the elderly residents. Fortunately, our deployed systems are flexible enough to overcome even the biggest hurdle.

Which standard - Z-Wave, Zigbee, KNX, MatterThere are now countless wireless standards for home automation. We can help you find the right one for your needs. In some cases, you may well get the most out of a mix of standards. Both in terms of price and performance. We rely on open international standards such as Z-Wave, Zigbee, EnOcean, W-LAN, and Bluetooth in the wireless or nighttime range, and KNX, Modbus, TCP/IP, and 1-Wire for wired solutions. Proprietary and closed systems (as great as they may be at the moment, they cannot meet our standards of longevity and sustainability and are therefore not recommended by us).Of course, the Internet is full of instructions on how to implement certain functions yourself. But at the same time not everyone has the time and especially the patience to deal with the matter and that's exactly what we are here for. Because not everyone repairs and maintains their car and changes the tires themselves, some leave it to the professionals.RequirementsIt is not necessary to open a port on your router and other services like DynDNS, DuckDNS, etc. are not needed either.
