Google Discontinues Nest Secure Alarm System

https://www.pcmag.com/news/google-disco ... arm-system

Outside of their smart assistants (google home devices) I refuse to buy or recommend these hardware/services, generally the support/service/hardware will become defunct/phased out in a few years (only a matter of time). Nest would have been best left alone, but then again here today gone tomorrow with any technology/service.

IoT sucks, the devices can be quite expensive some of the time, loose support in sometimes a year, and don't get me started on the privacy issues.

This is why I have self-hosted solutions. No point in subscribing to a home security solution that will nickel and dime you or simply become obsolete.
