I’m about to build my first home assistant and am fairly new to the game. I just discovered balena and notice they have their own os and documentation on how to run home assistant. The question is;
I don’t wan’t to run a system thats dependend on a cloud service and i can’t find out if the balenaCloud is purely for the deployment of your code etc, or if it’s also vital for the home assistant to communicate with other devices. My go to option was going to be using Zigbee. Could someone please clarify this for me as balena is fairly new and there isn’t a lot of documentation.
