This is a HUGE hangup for me and it didn’t seem to be clarified, or at least I didn’t see it directly addressed.
I do not care one bit about being cloud connected. I purchased solely based on the communication about the locally based features (mesh) which is why I referred the quote above. I was under the impression that I would not need to pay a monthly fee because all local xenons on a single mesh network would be free as the comment stated. There would be no external communication, all internal. An Argon is used to talk to a local server for data collection. This along with the promise of local based dev tool would allow me to be independent of an internet connection.
I would like some clarification on this because my needs and future product development will far exceed 30 units in the home setting. A single time exception for me isn’t what I’m looking for because this is something that will be rolled out to clients, again in a home setting. Not a business where tons of money is being saved/earned from production tweaks etc as mentioned in the reason behind the pricing change.
So if someone could please help clarify things for me about local based systems/communications that will use no external communication, I would appreciate. The sooner the better since I’ll be holding up on any further purchases since it would exceed the 30 unit limit on your $10 plan.
