We're getting a new LG washer and dryer and they are advertising their HA capability called SmartThinQ. It looks like yet another WiFi cloud based setup. It supposedly works with Google Home too. I figure the answer is no, but it doesn't hurt to ask considering how popular these appliances are.
Is there any way to get these to integrate into HE? Is anyone working on something like this?
I ESPECIALLY hate when you have to get data from/about your device from a company API/Cloud. Not from the device, inside your network, directly. Let me keep everything "internal" that does not need to be outside.
A close second for the hate would be the ones that have an internal page or such that would work, but the entire data feature requires an internet connection to enable... So you still have to allow it to tell the company everything, and if you disable that portion it also disables that data page you were using.
