HA poll from another forum

True but whomever is doing it isn't really comparing anything, other than user's choices of HA system.

 

Looks like a popularity contest.

 

The reason I posted it here is, in that forum, things are very biased with so many participants selling and promoting their own products. The participants always get a biased view of the real world and ISY loses before the book cover can be opened.

The ISY is currently a respectable second as a primary controller and ahead of homeseer. Good to see, though its hard to tell how random the sampling really is. I believe that there are more actual HS users vs ISY.

 

Given how crazy this market has become, it would be good to see a true randomized sampling of HA users of each of this modified version of the poll by household:

  • Primary Controller (same list + Aduino, Pi, Beaglebone,.., echo,...) 
  • Secondary Controllers & Hubs used 
  • PLC Primary - I have xxx% (Insteon, Zwave, Zigbee, Lutron, X10,..)
  • PLC Secondary - I have xx% (Insteon, Zwave, Zigbee, Lutron, X10,..)
  • Non PLC protocols used (wifi, BT, IR, ....)
  • All HA cloud protocols (HomeKit, AllJoyn...)
  • All Cloud Integration mashups (IFTTT, Stringify,...)

The poll highly depends upon the visibility of said poll.

 

Given Larry published this information in the UDI forum it would make sense the ISY would be seeing decent numbers. If the same poll was placed in the Vera forum well guess what Charlie Brown?

 

In the ideal world a survey monkey of the very same would be pushed to all HA enthusiasts that would offer a true insight as to the world populations. I do however find it odd and funny at the same time that not one single vendor ever goes out of their way to indicate the total population of their wares.

 

Keeping in mind you simply can't say its based on units sold because if a warehouse has XXX thousands, millions, on a shelf that's not the same as being in the end users hands.
