The Cost of Hacking

This is a gentle warning to those who love disassembling everything, including our HestiaPi Touch. Some people have damaged their LCD’s touch functionality (the display though works fine) by misaligning the connector as shown on the picture. Our case aligns the LCD correctly but if you decide to take things apart, make sure you...

Loose rivets and broken LCD hooks

A few people who have received HestiaPi ONE from CrowdSupply/Mouser report broken parts upon arrival. Although this is indeed true for some unfortunate cases, we want to clarify a few things: All orders placed directly on HestiaPi.com are not at risk as we have been doing that for some time and we know how...

Design for Manufacturing (DFM) – The Case Chapter

HestiaPi has done great so far but we need to push even further if we want this project to be financially self-sustainable. From our latest crowd funding campaign we realised that 3D printing will be a bottleneck if we want this for mass production. As our volumes are below 10k units, injection molding is...

Soldering guide

During the past weeks we have been very busy soldering and assembling your (too many) units, so we thought about making a little video for people who will be soldering their boards themselves. Checkout in the description the extra tools we made to make (y)our life easier.

No more slow LCD [VIDEO]

While the campaign is going strong, we are working hard redesigning many parts. One of the most popular requests has always been the LCD UI. Let’s dig right into it…

HestiaPi + ESP = <3

United we stand! (aka we got funded!!!)

Lowering the Funding Goal We’ve made the decision to lower the initial minimum budget from $48k USD to only $6k and soon after we got funded! We’ve made this decision after discussing the numbers with Crowd Supply HQ, and they confirmed that a reduction in the funding goal was feasible. This is partially possible...

You don’t get to decide what is happening in your house (or do you?)

If you haven’t heard already, earlier this week Nest announced they are killing the support of external devices communicating with the API. Popular services like IFTTT, along with pretty much most existing integrations will stop talking to Nest as a result of this action! The “Works With Nest” program and the API has been...

Our documentation is now a Wiki (or never leave you Pi home alone)

Preparing for the launch of our crowdfunding campaign at CrowdSupply we are doing some housekeeping. Part of that phase is tidying up our documentation and guides with up to date info and photos to help you.
