Damn… another reason to cancel my order. This will be chaos to start migration when half of the apps is not compatible and everything needs to be migrated manually. Destined to fail (at least the first half a year and for heavy users).
True but not all developers have the time to rewrite their app before the first batch arrives. Some don’t answer to requests at all. And rewrites also means a bigger chance for problems and bugs. Anyway, each developer should be praised but I’m not willing to risk chaos in my fully automated home by being amongst the first users.
Athom needs active developers and “supporters” aka users that test and report bugs to keep the Community development train running.
I expect there will be a new Major FW release (fe v10)
Until that don’t upgrade, from that FW I expect SDK 2 isn’t working and all that Apps stop (like they did with FW v5 ? and SDK1 )
After that I expect them to enable backup from Pro < 2023 and Restore on /migration to Homey Pro 2023
I know. But as a heavy user that is also very active here I - as said above - was very excited and wanted to have it. But as it turns out that probably comes at a price I’m not willing to pay. And I see there are many more heavy users that skip the first batch because of this. In the end you do need them exactly because they are those heavy users that give the feedback you need. Anyway, we’ll see what happens. I hope for the best.
As a reference… placed two orders within 1 minute between the time as seen in the order confirmation “bestellingen” there is a 198 number difference between them… so a quick calculation would estimated 5850 orders in 30min at 399euro… is huge amount of revenue…
Also many not confirmed orders are in the systems. But i think it was a big succes for Athom
