Whoever designed this screen was really good at UX. (this is in Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper)

FIS im bls RABe 515 027-1 gibt jetzt Auskunft über die Hardware. Die Klimaanlage darunter hat aber auch etwas warm.

There are some international ones with Z-Wave or Zigbee as protocols, which would be great. However, there are also some Swiss made ones that have open APIs but somehow still depend on the cloud (looking at you, myStrom). Lastly, there's this really interesting form factor from Max Hauri. It meshes really well with how we lay out our plugs. Sadly it depends on unencrypted cloud services that send your password MD5 encoded for set up and likely for the timer functions and energy history, too.

Once GitHub figures out how to do computers again, it should be live at freaktechnik.github.io/extensi

One day Ubisoft may understand that you really should separate language and store region.
