I give up, I had it for almost 2 years or so, it used to work without interruption, now every now and then, one of the integrations fail, cloud is not loading, connections fail, smart things hub need repairing every 3 days, lights not accessible anymore, broadlink connection fails, and so many of them. It became a 24h monitoring job and I just can’t/won’t do it anymore. If you run home assistant with 2 light bulbs and a ikea sensor then maybe (MAYBE) it works most of the time, but when you have a lot of devices with different services and bad implementations for them … it just won’t do it.
And no, I am not running a crappy hardware, it is an i5 with 8GB RAM, running in docker that is updated daily. I also pay for the cloud connection.
So many changes, so many wrong integrations, so many errors. In the end I believe it is best choose the least annoying of the platforms, so right now I would go for Google or SmartThings, even if you don’t have this flexibility of configuration and/or multitude of devices.
It was a nice project in the beginning, but now I don’t know what the roadmap is for it and to be honest I don’t wanna find out anymore.
I believe the best solution is to pay a little extra for good and reliable hardware (need advice here, if any) that has good implementation with traditional assistants, like Google, Samsung and maybe others.
