Can a non-profit foundation get Home Assistant to the point of Home Depot boxes?


Where does this leave existing Home Assistant enthusiasts, who are probably familiar with the feeling of a tech brand pivoting away from them? It’s hard to imagine Home Assistant dropping its advanced automation tools and YAML-editing offerings entirely. But Schoutsen suggested he could imagine a split between regular and “advanced” users down the line. But Home Assistant’s open nature, and now its foundation, should ensure that people will always be able to remix, reconfigure, or re-release the version of smart home choice they prefer.

More power to them! I’d love an open solution to be an easy choice.

Google Home was nice for a while, but slowly, everything is breaking.
