Home Assistant gets some respect from Silicon Labs.

The much-loved open-sourced home automation platform Home Assistant is finally getting a seat at the table.

Its parent company, Nabu Casa, announced it’s partnering with Silicon Labs, one of the main chip makers for smart home devices (and the only Z-Wave chip maker).

Home Assistant builds Z-Wave JS, the only open-source driver for Z-Wave. This partnership basically means it will get the kind of priority support normally reserved for companies that buy a lot of chips, which should translate into more stable smart homes for us. Yay.
