Hi there fellow Homey enthusiasts.
I bought the Homey based on the marketing material and the research I had done prior to my purchase.
On paper Homey looks like the perfect home-automation hub, with alle the capabilitites and supported devices.
I bought the Homey V2 thinking it would be better (since it’s newer), but alas I see they removed functionality instead of adding and improving functionality.
After 2 weeks with the Homey I must admit I am terribly disappointed, since most of the plugs and services don’t work.
Hardware that doesn’t work:
6* Sonoff Basic (apparently I need to flash other firmware in order to make that work. Not exactly the easiest thing for a non-programmer)
5 * Belkin Wemo swithces. Keeps getting error messages, so app must be restarted constantly, which defeats the purpose.
1 * Nanoleaf Canvas. Canvas isn’t supported, only Nanoleaf Aurora, so I can’t control those
4 * Chromecast. Keeps getting error messages
Google Home Mini. I cannot get GH to talk to Homey
Amazon Alexa . I cannot geth Alexa to talk to Homey
Hardware that works
Hardware not tested yet
Am I unjust in feeling mislead or is there something that I have overseen, that can jusitfy the Homey as a better alternative to eg. Google home?
Any advice is welcome. Thank you for your time
