Isn’t it obvious? Home Assistant is the good soul that is assisting you in your home. It’s common to refer to Home Assistant simply as HA or
hass (not to be confused with the German word “Hass”, it’s more like the abbreviation of Home Assistant Server Service).
hass is also the name of the command-line part.
The website https://www.home-assistant.io was launched on December 18, 2014 and contains documentation about the setup process, the platforms and integrations, and for the developers.
