I haven't even used IFTT after trying NodeRed. I simply love it. Well, part of the reason was privacy/security and not wanting to be pulled in any of the home automation ecosystems. So I flashed all my devices with Tasmota firmware and moved to Homeassistant self hosted solution. I had an Unraid server already so it was a perfect place to run those on, as Docker containers.
Out of all those tools and software, NodeRed most impresses me. There is no limit in what you can do with it, it's free and easily hosted localy or remotely using a docker container.
