With the recent V2.0 firmware release was mentioned a new Homey Pro edition.
I cant deny it, i was excited. As some of you know I am actively pushing for a better upgraded professional series on the Homey Hub.
“Only 100 euro more”, the excitement was building… clicked on “preorder now”
ummm did it take me to the pro specs page???
mustn’t have, click on Homey pro tab…nothing.
The Pro version is a dual core processor with 1 G ram. Yes you read it right. Not Quad Core 2G ram which is bare minimum in products these days and as such cost effective.
And no more inbuilt NFC reader.
So for an extra 100 euro you get hardware that is 3 years old and will be outdated (my opinion already is) in another year. And they removed the functional $10 NFC reader. value added to the Standard pro, 20 Euro hardware costs. Maybe Athom should use the Homey logic app to calculate production costs.
This is NOT PRO, this is simply version 2. I doubt you can even find the old hardware unless shifting though recycled 10 year old computers.
What a disappointment. What deceptive Name. What am I to do…
I am ordering one anyway…
