The Tailscale integration integrates the Tailscale API with Home Assistant; giving you the possibility to monitor and automate on the state of the devices in your Tailscale VPN network (Tailnet).

Please, note that this integration integrates with data from the Tailscale API, it is not a Tailscale client itself, and thus add Home Assistant to your Tailscale VPN network.
