I need to “smart” my thermostats, and am coming up blank for an owner-controlled/free software solution. HestiaPi seems like the next-best thing (only next-best because it uses the backdoored Raspberry Pi SoC), but it seems production has been halted, and I don’t really want to keep waiting.
So can I pay someone to build me 3 or 4 of the US model? Bonus if you can “upgrade” it to a non-backdoored SoC, but I’ll tolerate a Pi Zero W if I have to.
P.S. Just in case someone has suggestions for a “better fit” device I could try instead, I’d ideally prefer hardware buttons, an e-ink/e-paper display, and a camera built-in. I don’t care about software so long as I can hack at it - back when I used Nest, I reverse engineered and rewrote the firmware GitHub - freeabode/freeabode: Home automation software
