Well, I have to say that I'm somewhat disappointed that Hubitat didn't even rate a mention in the article. Although I don't considcer myself a "Hubitat fanboy", I thought at least that it deserves a mention. Like anything, HE has it's better things and it's not better things.
It appears from the article, and from many other sources, that the UI of HE and most particularly the dashboard part of the app need a refresh. It's not that the dashboard is such a critical piece of the overall HA picture, but it does appear that the dashboard (and/or the app) is the most visible piece of the HA puzzle.
Of course, the HE approach - which is to maximize the automation and therefore to minimize the importance of the dashboard means that the dashboard/app are not that important in the HE scheme of things. That may well be true. However, the market doesn't think so. That most visible part of HA deserves a lot of "spit and polish" so that HE will be more highly considered.
A very flashy, sexy, easy to use functional app will do wonders for the product, in my humble opinion. What's your opinion?
