Technology ages at the same rate as major real world assets right?This stuff or any single part will rapidly (in comparison to the rest of your house) become obsolete and then you’ll have some dude on the other side of the planet hacking your house on livestream for lols.


Well done you for embracing the future with an open mind and an optimistic attitude. We need more positive thinkers like your good self in thsi world.

It's about harnessing the best of what we have, humans have done that and accomplished many excellent things in medicine and science.

Unfortunately we also did the same in awful things as well, but we have to look to the best and bring up our children with that mindset where we become the best versions of ourselves.

Come with us and enjoy the best and positive things with us!

Great power - great abuse. Morality is not a given and safeguards only come after we’ve learned the hard way. The internet of things offers a few shortcuts at the potential cost of human freedom itself.

It’s very like fire or the wheel or plumbing as mentioned by the other poster. Technology has the potential to get out of control and must be handled with care.

We think we’ve mastered the wheel and plumbing and fire (and in many ways we have) but the human cost for each of those three was actually quite high (with an ongoing cost).

We are casually rolling out unimaginably powerful surveillance systems and compromised devices with physical influence but without resilient authorization concepts.

It is inevitable that harm will be done by these systems but I never see safety discussions when it comes to IoT.
Ordered free is free and may not ever use it but hey ho

You have very valid points, I am always careful about my privacy, Edward snowden showed us exactly how our rights are trampled upon with impunity.
I never I stall stuff that can impede my privacy like Amazon and Google home devices, but the IOT stuff for turning on my lights is as much of an appetite I have .

Love this site and the smart commenters here. Sorry for being a bit cynical. Hopefully intelligence prevails and progress is made thoughtfully.

Hope anyone installing such technology does so successfully without any issues.

Peace
Why use this instead of something like home-assistant.io/ ?

Yeah I was wondering the same thing. Surely there's a lot more support for hassio with it being so widely adopted (within DIY IoT anyway)

Sllep well (although it must be difficult with that tin hat on).
Ordered, probably never use since I don't even have a Pi.... but hey ho...
Just noticed this free one has Ads built in somehow

Don't need a tin foil hat .... Just a VPN!
I read a news article fairly recently about a woman who couldnt figure out why her central heating was turning on/off out of control. After several engineer visits she realised her ex was controlling it via an app long after they split.
Most technology, even with the best intentions/planning, has the potential for abuse.

Out of curiosity (and to keep things a bit more cheerful) what kind of things would you actually use this for?

Imho lighting seems useful - cycling them on when away or checking a light hasnt been left on.
Ordered a million licenses, order went through absolutely fine

Probably never going to use it, don't even own any Pi3s, only a P1B and a few P0s
The problem with this is the same as a lot of Pi stuff...it requires you to dedicate a Pi to the one task by flashing an image to an SDCard. A Pi is nothing special, it's just a small computer running Linux.

Secondly, I wouldn't be happy running commercial/proprietary software for this stuff, who knows what is happening with the data? Though I suppose if you want home automation, you're not exactly privacy minded to begin with...

Use Home Assistant instead, it's always free - free as in gratis and free as in freedom. Also you can install it on any Linux machine (maybe even Windows with some messing around), Pi, a desktop, a server, whatever. Home Assistant have an image to flash on an SD but you don't need to use it, you can install it from any OS - Arch, Raspbian etc. You can even run it in Docker if you prefer:

home-assistant.io/doc…er/

Yeah seems crazy to use this branded version of Hass.io presumably they have plugins for their proprietary hardware or some other value add?
