So athom is having a party with the release of 2.0. gone with the old in with the new, no more pc support the future is mobile, speech is dead and nfc is useless. And a home automationsystem that runs and is managed localy without the need of a cloud is for privacy potheads.
The answer to everyone that wants to manege there house on anything bigger then a 5 inch screen is we are looking into it (tablet) or you can Stay on 1.5 if you don’t like it. (pc)
But… to be honest with apps having an minimal version and athom putting all there effort in 2.0+ staying at 1.5 means standing still.
So i was thinking, would athom be willing to opensource there homey core 1.5 for us oldtimers who think that this new kids direction was a big mistake. So that the community van develop it further and see where it goes from there.
I love the homey hardware, i love how it has grown since i ordered my first homey on kickstarter and had to wait a year to get a doa buggy sphere , i love it as a base for home automation. But this new direction is just not working for anyone that see homey as more then a toy and is serious about home automation.
I don’t need a fancy app i need a system that is safe, is easy to configure and can controll my house.
So please if you don’t want to maintain this basic version let the community do it for you.
