I’m guessing this is a fairly common topic but after a bit of searching I haven’t come across much that’s current.
While I can understand the use of small developers to support no-name sensors and switches (it’s a chore but it’s not impossible to write your own device handlers and set hardware up accordingly), what I don’t understand - or appreciate - is the lack of support for mainstream suppliers like Ring and the way that the new app is going. Given that it seems to be removing our ability to write and install our own handlers then surely it’s killing the whole concept behind smartthings? Not only that, but the huge delays in updating devices and the current reliance on a web connection for anything “custom” is really, really throttling my enthusiasm for what was once a fairly robust and interesting system.
Weighing up Hubitat vs going full geek and trying to get a working install of openHAB rolling. Any thoughts or opinions on current alternatives?
