Run your personal server with a Bitcoin and Lightning node in your home, self-host open source apps like Nextcloud and Matrix to break away from big tech, and take full control of your data. For free.
All our interactions on the internet today are mediated by a few companies who offer “free” services in exchange for storing our data on their servers to spy on us.
Running a personal server fundamentally changes that. You and your family’s photos, videos, files, notes, passwords — everything, have nothing to do with someone else’s computer. They’re a part of your private life, and now they can all be stored by you, in your home, on your Umbrel.
The Bitcoin network is made up of thousands of nodes that verify every single transaction in the blockchain.
Some of them mine Bitcoin too, but unlike a mining node, running a non-mining node doesn’t require expensive hardware.
Achieve unparalleled privacy by connecting your wallet directly to the Bitcoin node on your Umbrel. This ensures that your wallet company can’t spy on your transactions, or even worse — lie to you.
Or connect any other wallet that supports Bitcoin Core P2P, Bitcoin Core RPC, the Electrum protocol, or lndconnect.
Independently store and validate every single Bitcoin transaction with your Bitcoin node. Plus, transacting with your own node also helps keep the entire Bitcoin network decentralized; win-win!
The Lightning Network offers ultra cheap and almost instant Bitcoin transactions. Umbrel runs a Lightning node out of the box so you can start leveraging the power of Lightning today.
An entirely self-hosted Google Drive replacement — store your documents, calendar, contacts, photos and videos on your Umbrel with Nextcloud instead of Google’s servers.
Yes, the entire network — not just browsers. No more having ads track you and your family members everywhere on the internet.
Privately host, browse, organize, and share your photo and video collection with PhotoPrism, and say goodbye to uploading your visual memories to the “cloud”.
Open source home automation that puts local control and privacy first. Home Assistant integrates with over a thousand different devices and services to make your home work for you.
