Home Assistant is the tool for you.


It's software that requires you to run at home, but don't worry, you can do it with ~$70 worth of Raspberry Pi.

What you can do:

  • Link up pretty much every home automation service together in one app.
  • Group lights or devices together with a single switch on the app, even if they're made by different manufacturers!
  • Create rules like "if my living room is > 24 C, turn on the air conditioning"

Bonus tips:

  • Using a Broadlink device, you can affordably blast IR commands at devices that support it.
