Avi-on Bluetooth bridge, alternative to lack of ST native BT

Does anyone know if the AVI-ON remote access bridge will have an open API or any type of http command that we can utilize together with ST?

I have been seeing a lot of those GE Bluetooth smart switches, dinners and outdoor modules at a couple local liquidators for the past 8-9 months. I always pass on them as there’s no way to integrate with ST.
But they are (at least at liquidators) a cheap alternative to the GE Zwave switches I already use.

I’d love if ST would open up the BT antenna even if they support nothing, but allow the community to use it. But that doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen, hence now seeing this bridge that should be available in the next week, I wonder if there’s any hope.

Or if anyone has a clue if setting up a RPI could work in similar vein as the project that allows Lutron caseta switches to work via the RPI bridge to ST.
