The Home Assistant Beginner’s Guide Part 1: Setting up Home Assistant

In the first part of the Home Assistant Beginner’s Guide guide we’ll be going over the basics: A quick explainer on what Home Assistant and Hass.io are, followed by the hardware requirements and installation of Home Assistant on top of Hass.io.

Why does Home Assistant have so many names?

There's Home Assistant, Hass.IO, HassOS, Hassbian, Hass, Home Assistant Core, and Home Assistant Supervised. That’s a lot of names for a single project. Fear not, for I have written a guide which will explain each and every one of the names mentioned.
