I don’t think you’re the only one – I actually have liked and chosen OpenSprinkler for the possibility of being able to control the device if the “rayshobby” website were to ever go down.
I understand the benefits of the cloud hosting and auto updates – but I have a fear that 5 or 10 years down the line the “cloud” part of the little gadget is gone.
I’d rather have the ability to host some of the content internal to my network (unlike NEST) so that my hardware doesn’t just lose configuration ability one day out of the blue.
