Would it be possible to get a hardware reviews channel in the community? It would be greatly appreciated to know what devices have been tried and either succeeded or failed as well as if it takes a firmware update etc to make it useful. sub sections for light bulbs/furnaces/switches/novelty/… would help out those of us who are new to the scene and looking to know what can be readily added to openhab or may need work to make it happen.
Can we get a better breakout in the documentation of what devices a thing controls? like little badges for light’s/blinds/hvac/weather/… also if for example there is a power switch device that with default firmware either forces use of cloud or is not happily compatible but after a community firmware works well with out cloud or other tricks… make a smooth edge badge mean it works with updates and a star edge badge means it works happily no strings attached. also a badge for cloud only devices. being able to find non cloud hardware is quite important for me not just for security reasons but also due to loss of internet during the winter storms can leave cloud only devices broken for weeks at a time. dropping a link to the reviews and using badges on devices known to work well in both places would be a great help to new users. it would also be nice to know if those are us/uk/ger/… only devices.
