NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED!
Let's build our own smarthome thermostat the way we want it!
HestiaPi is an open project running successfully for a few years now in several homes around the world allowing people to access and control heating and hot water locally or remotely. It is based on Raspberry Pi and interfaces with the world via a web GUI and/or an LCD with 4 buttons for the more traditional people.
We think it's time to move on and start HestiaPi 2.
A smaller, cheaper project with a 3.5" touchscreen running OpenHAB platform at its core expanding connectivity with unlimited sensors and hackability with RasPi Zero(!)

-What is HestiaPi?
-How does it work?
