I live in a small house of 25 square meters, my mission is to transform this space into the smartest student studio what is possible. On this page you can find what I use in terms of integration, add-ons and hardware. Also check out Github because you will find all of my code there.

For running Home Assistant, I would recommend to use an Intel NUC for better scalability and future-proofing, despite the initial cost of around €300. Alternatively, if budget is a concern, you can consider the Home Assistant Yellow or Odroid-M1. Many beginners start with a Raspberry Pi, but upgrading to a more powerful hardware like Intel NUC is advisable for long-term usage. Below you will find the hardware I use for Home Assistant:
For the most accurate list check out my Github repository. Note that due to the ADR-0010 decision, there will be a transition from YAML to UI config and this will make integrations disappear from my Github list.
Home Assistant is a large open source project, which means that every integration was once offered as Pull Requrest on Github to merge as native integration into Home Assistant. If an integration exists but it is not already native to Home Assistant, we speak of a custom integration, which you must load sideways into a separate folder.
