  • Internet of Things, like home automation, will not take off until the following is done:

    1) A free & open standard for the protocol between the devices and controller. Must be hobbyist & open source friendly for both the controller and things.

    2) IPv6 & local controller. No, my thing is not punching a hole in my firewall to a website. My thing must be fully functional independent of an Internet connection and support from the seller/manufacturer.

    3) Easy, fast, plug & play provisioning.

    4) Must use a mesh network that can allow a device to last a year on battery power (see https://pinocc.io/ )

  • Can my Particle things be be directly addressable on the Internet (via IPv6) or must I be blocked via IPv4 NAT hell and its various workaround hacks?

No public wish lists :(
