The trouble with any 'smart' device such as a Nest thermostat or Hue light bulb is that they require an internet connection and a company to be in business running a server that they connect to. As we have seen with Logitech a company can change it's focus at anytime.

If the product you just bought requires a cloud service to be available to function, you don't own it.

2019 is the year I am taking back control of my smart devices by bringing as much 'smarts' back inside my LAN as possible. To do this I've recently been experimenting with Home Assistant which I have running a docker container on my media server.
