As such, local execution, by name (i.e. LOCAL) likely does not support the grander data monetization vision if present , so local support is likely not a strategic priority. Decisions like this usually are not due to those working hard in the trenches, but rather the non-technical folks pulling in 7 figures a year in the upper ranks.
So, looking at Hubitat, there seems to be promise, but many unanswered questions. Might jump on it too if migration and code compatibility is there or even if some of the annual fee questions and what is included long term. I know, wishful thinking.
