Konnected Cloud/ST for upcoming install? Home Assistant?

So I read the blog post and honestly don't understand what the benefit coming up is... I am moving into my home in May or so, and am planning to use Konnected to replace the hard wired sensors and make a smarter alarm system. 

Now this blog post about the Konnected Cloud and how I won't need the existing ST integration, I don't quite understand. Do I need something in Home Assistant? Is there a preference between the two? I appreciate any thoughts or ideas.
