The storm is coming or the future of NSPanel

When will the guys at Sonoff/eWeLink realise that the jokes are over? Sonoff consistently lists a bunch of sexy NSPanel Pro features on its website, such as Home Assistant integration. However, the vast majority of the things listed are still not available. Over and over again we are informed that they will appear in the next version of the software or simply - in the future.
Let’s look at the list of features available on the product page. Almost half are still not available. At what point do we call it what it really is - a beta product? Well, it’s rather late beta now, but NSPanel doesn’t offer even a trace of the advertised Home Assistant integration or third-party support. This is an absolute joke! Come on, you have deliberately released a product with unfinished software. The end of the work is not even on the horizon and you are something like proud of this product? Really?

With your feet on the air
And your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
If there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself
Where is my mind?

They have all always acted this way and nothing is likely to change.

Maybe you should think about alternative software for NSP.

Some stores even sell NSP with SUPLA installed, while others use Tasmota.

I thought about it. However, I will lose, for example, the possibility of using the panel as an eWeLink Remote hub this way. For the time being, there is no R5 or S-Mate integration with HA as it is a closed protocol. Still the control of TRVZB in NSPanel Pro with the original software is more convenient than via HA. For the time being, I am waiting for eWeLink/Sonoff developments and using the HA dashboard displayed in the panel as a webpage.
The projects associated with both NSPanel and NSPanel Pro show how much potential there is in both devices and how much of it is being wasted.
