Now I didn't say home automation due to the fact that EG is not limited to just a house.
I don't like it.
Isn't all Automation pretty much automatic?
And that makes it sound so simple. Easy. Like it takes no work.
But it does take work. To set up and learn. It is hard for some people.
Maybe impossible for many (they need not apply).
Girder is HARD! (very hard for me)
Girder costs money.
Eventghost is powerful. And sort of easy once you figure it out.
It is often updated. Many many people working on it.
Plugins out the wazoo. Can do damn near anything.
Works great around the home. It is free.
It is opensource. Blahblahblah
It can be auto.
But so is AUTOmation.
Auto is great. But for me it's about using buttons on one remote/panel to skip commercials, feed my dog and water the plants etc etc.
I think slogens or intros are OK.
List features. Show what it can do.
Let the program speak for it's self.
The shit is so good we don't need to "sell" it.
I wonder how popular EG is compared to other similar softwares.
How many people use it daily? How many times has it been downloaded?
Ya' know.... I think BitMonster could have made millions off this program (or at least 1).
Instead he shared it. Cool fucking dude that guy.
keep it simple (to start)
