Have you written to Father Christmas (AKA @Pavel) and told him what you’d like this year?
Have you been a good boy?

I got tired of waiting and migrated to Home Assistant with ESPhome. It really couldn’t have been easier.

I wasn’t familiar with HA till I read your note. It took me few hours to read up, install Hassio on my running rpi (manual install, did not burn a new OS on a SD) and get an ESP32 to display info on the Dashboard.

It looks good but it’s hardly for new starters; rather complex I’d say.

So, in my humble opinion, HA is not an easy replacement for Blynk.

Happy Holidays

For sure, but we are still waiting for the new platform , J-3 :rofl:

AFAIK, Blynk is for prototyping your app and finally publishing and managing server side and updates for some hardware you make… for home automation, i would advise you to try OpenHab… better interface, prob much more addons, very powerful platform, and you can add your Blynk machines via mqtt… HA looks meh…

HA is definitely more complicated than Blynk but it is also significantly more powerful. I burned Hass.io onto a
blank SD card and then used add-ons manager to install ESPEasy. It’s definitely not as easy as Blynk but it was the easiest way I found to get HA up and running.

Agreed. I tried OpenHab but struggled to wrap my head around it, HA seemed to be significantly more newb friendly.

I got a headache :rofl:
But, since we have no news from the Blynk developers, I will decide on 1st of 2020 what I will choose.
