Our guys should start opening up a “Beta” group to identify volunteers to start testing a brand new Hardware platform (Hub) we have built with its own RTOS (Real Time Operating System). We will need to get as many users as possible testing this brand new platform (of course we will send for free the platform to every beta user).
As I mentioned before we are going with 2 different platforms
1)Our own RTOS (and our own hardware design)
2)Linux based (and a different hardware design but still ours)
There will then be different flavours of the above 2.
So the team is ready to beta test (1). Should be very exciting :)…But PLEASE find as many bugs/issues as possible during this beta phase! Our user base is well known for being “well above average” when it comes to their technical expertise and understanding in the home automation market. So we consider ourselves fortunate that we will have access to this “army of home automation technical experts” who will no doubt hunt down every bug!!!
Don’t know about PLEG, but like @amg0, I’ll make Reactor and all of my other plugins work anywhere that I have sufficient access to developer tools and support. Actually, I’m really excited to do this, as many great suggestions have been made for improving the APIs that could really help us take things to the next level.
They said (for now?) no support for third party plugins, so we as plugin developers can keep our focus on the existing platforms. No point in spending time on the Atom. Read the current specs here Beta Test Our New Ezlo Atom
We think that developers, even without the support for plugins at the moment, are the best critical eye we can get for a new product, giving their technical understanding of the underlying of a device or service.
Keep in mind that you get to keep the product and be first to test new features as they come.
Do you have plugin support ? Add me as a Beta User candidate.
I will provide Vera Alert and Program Logic capability.
These are two very popular Plugins on Vera.
If the base system has enough functionality … these may not be needed … but I will be able to decide and advise existing users based on results of the Beta evaluation.
