I’ve looked through the forum search results and other online articles and can only find some indications that imply that firebase push notifications are a “free” service with or without a nabu casa subscription.
However after the free trial ended, I noticed that notifications would only be received after turning on the screen. I’m on a selfimposed very very tight budget, so $5 a month isnt a big deal, but I’d rather keep my monthly expenses barebones for a while.
Anyway, I paid the 5$ bones and it seems I’m getting firebase notifications with the screen off. Getting reliable notifications is worth it to me, but I would like a concise answer.
Are firebase push notifications a feature of the nabu casa service or a complimentary feature of homeassistant? I do not need the proxy service, or even AI assistants.
