Is there truly smart home where you hold the keys? It must start with open standards for how devices communicate. Only then is there a space where truly open alternatives to Big Tech smart home gadgets can exist for the average consumer outside of do-it-yourself electronics projects.

@primalmotion @purism Sure. i understand that, but such a unconditional statement that you have no choice... is the same as saying Windows and Mac are your only choices in PC. They are not. In mobile world it's harder, and I appreciate their effort with L5, but hey, don't push on emotions joining the horde of FUD-dealers.
