Our manufacturers are preparing the first set of Hearts and together we are working on bringing you a high quality and beautifully crafted product. The production run will be moving in small steps to ensure we reach the right quality before mass production. Only the finest deserves to be the heart of our homes.
Are you a developer? We have some interesting information for you. We have updated the language to make things more stable! After some stress testing (loading it with many hApps) of the system and frameworks (Grails), thankfully, we realised some drawbacks that weren’t acceptable for us. To provide the best possible system for you we have been working on moving away from Grails and Groovy to a Java implementation based on a stable and reliable standard, OSGI.
We are also preparing API documentations for those who would like to get into hApp developing early on.
We are building the future of smart homes together with you. Therefore, we welcome hApp ideas and use cases that you all have. So please continue posting your hApp ideas and current smart devices on our forum or send us an email – it helps us bring you what’s right!
