Standalone is the term used for a device that does not need to be integrated in order to work. A TiVo box which can record TV programs is one example. Standalone items are usually more expensive than integrated devices but they are better if you are looking to customise a home cinema for example. Some software programs can also be standalones, in that they only need the operating system of a computer to run.
