CasaOS Snapshot

Why do we need Home Cloud?

Think about it seriously. Is control of our data, smart devices and digital assets now only in the hands of some big company?

  • Is your photo album saved in their cloud service?
  • Do your thermostats, monitors, lamps need to be used through their cloud services?
  • Do your personal documents, memos, contacts, passwords, etc. reside in their cloud storage services?
  • Are you just going to have to accept their decisions when they decide to change prices, review content or even discontinue services?

It sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? We are losing control of our own data!

Our ideal home cloud is one where you can manage all your data, devices and data assets very easily. In your own home, you have absolute control.

If you think what we are doing is valuable. Please give us a star and fork it 🤞!

The word Casa comes from the Spanish word for "home". Project CasaOS originated as a pre-installed system for crowdfunded product ZimaBoard on Kickstarter.

After looking at many systems and software on the market, the team found no server system designed for home scenarios, sadly true.

So, we set out to build this open source project to develop CasaOS with our own hands, everyone in the community, and you.

We believes that through community-driven collaborative innovation and open communication with global developers, we can reshape the digital home experience like never before.

A warm welcome for you to get help or share great ideas in the Discord!
