The Home Assistant developers challenged themselves: what would the perfect home automation hub look like. Not just software, but also hardware and looks.
The result is this limited edition Home Assistant Blue bundle. Hardware that is affordable and fast, packed in a gorgeous case and powered by the most powerful home automation software on the planet: Home Assistant.
The Blue Vision
Home Assistant Blue is the perfect platform to run Home Assistant, with the perfect look.
Easy to use
Powered by the Home Assistant Operating System, getting started is as easy as plugging in the network and power cables and opening up the Home Assistant mobile app to get started.
Home Assistant Blue comes with 128GB of eMMC storage. That’s the same type of storage your phone uses. A sudden loss of power won’t fry it.
Home Assistant Blue looks as good as the software that runs it: eye-catching. Hahn Werke designed a beautiful aluminium case.
All software that runs on Home Assistant Blue is open source. Including all the hardware drivers. BayLibre will be used to fix bugs and get it merged upstream in the Linux kernel!
