As cool as it sounds, I'm not willing to invest 1000s in a company who is here today and gone tomorrow only to start the process over and repeat. Until the market matures and standards are created, this guy is not going to be a dollar feeder to bleeding edge unreliable tech whose sole purpose is to bleed out my wallet.
Or if you want a home automation system that does not require an upfront software purchase, you can try one of the open-source platforms that Aeotec recommends on their Z-Stick product page.
Cloud-dependent products / platforms might get you out of the gate quicker with an easier setup process, but then the fate of your HA system is in the hands of a 3rd party who has no obligation to keep their service running.
