For such a long time, I have been hunting for a GOOD local, offline voice assistant that works well with Home Assistant. Due to recent updates in Home Assistant, this has made it possible & much more accessible to make your own, privacy focused voice assistant. Rhasspy is an opensource, local & fully offline voice assistant that is focussed on privacy. There are two different versions of Rhasspy & in this video, I show you how to do both from start to finish.
