I understand homey works  from the cloud. How about an offline back up should the external network go down?

    Homey doesn't work through the cloud, it works locally:

    Offline Homey will still be able to manage your home, as Homey is not dependent on cloud services to operate (unlike some other systems). Functionality that remains available offline includes:

    • Controlling your home with the Homey Smartphone App while you're on the same WiFi network
    • Executing flows that don't need internet, for example sensor based ones
    • Voice output, allowing Homey to speak (for example in flows)
    • Logging of your local sensor data in the Insights module


    In short, all the capabilities that do not clearly require internet work.
