Herb challenged me. Herb’s view is that DIY HA is dead. Which isn’t true. Rather it’s a complex subject and it’s not just about home automation, though that is a part of it.

A discussion with a colleague

Why can't I buy this stuff in the store?

You can but you need to have certain knowledge and a DIY mindset to build it

Rome wasn't built in a day (and not because of an energy drink)

Has anyone ever built a car from scratch?

But can you?

Has anyone ever built a smart home solution from scratch?

You can but it's easier to buy one with a cloud solution

But you can do it yourself and avoid the cloud.

Hopefully Matter will help with this, hence the Quorem, but I have my doubts.
