Sunsetting NetIO App
after a long and exciting journey of the NetIO apps, we decided to officially stop any maintenance and support activity at the end of 2021. We had a really great time seeing the project grow and getting to know all of your projects and ideas you put into practice. Thank you for all your passion and dedication!
When we started NetIO, the DIY and home automation community was very different - mobile phones were just entering the market and web technologies were evolving fast. Only with the support of you we were able to build a product that helped thousands of projects to get a remote control.
We build NetIO during our studies as a side project and followed different projects and employments in the last years - we didn't forget NetIO on this way, but we need to admit that our time is limited and we cannot donate our free time to this project anymore. From a financial perspective, the revenue was mainly invested in the infrastructure to keep the system up and running. We spend quite some time on iterating over the business model and the options to take NetIO to the next level - to bring it from a DIY community project to a real business - but we couldn't find a proper model that would fit.
Further, the core implementation is. over 10 years old and to keep up with the fast changing technologies, we would need to spend more and more time and resources to maintain the system.
We hope you enjoyed the ride as we did and wish you all the best!
