We have built a (basic) prototype, but in order
to go forward with full scale development we
require customer engagement.
There are three main issues
1. Harmony is *excellent* in a disconnected, non
web-dependent environment. The majority of
Harmony users say that they choose it because
it's always available, you're not reliant on your
ISP for your HA to function.
2. A smartphone app that integrates with Harmony
will require ongoing maintenance & support. This
doesn't fit within the current one off purchase
model. (ie some sort of subscription fee would be
3. People interested in the App typically want
"works from anywhere" functionality
(understandably).. But that requires exposing
internal Harmony installations to the internet ;
either via end-user firewall config (not great),
or a web-intermediary (will involve cost, and
conflicts with #1).
I'd love to know what you (all) think is the
best way forward ; and if anyone has other
suggestions to fund/maintain development, please
don't be shy in contacting me.
