Benefits of using Twingate
- Fast setup, wide platform support. Setup entails deploying a Twingate Connector on a single device on your home network - a Linux server, Raspberry Pi, NAS, or a Windows computer. Connectors are offered as a VM systemd service or as a Docker image.
- Secure, configurable access. Twingate does not require an open port or port forwarding, which otherwise introduces a security risk into your home network. Grant access to friends & family members with granular permissions by network resource (e.g. family photos but not security camera footage). Access also does not require a static IP or DynamicDNS configuration.
- Access from every platform. Twingate offers desktop and mobile apps to access your home network, avoiding the hassle of fiddling with VPN settings on each device.

- Remote access to Home Assistant on Raspberry Pi
