Custom UI designed later will replace this native one but fine for now.
External power and a wireless keyboard to type faster were needed so case couldn't close with the USB hub sticking out. You get the picture. Sorry :)
New PCBs on the way to correct the overheating issue (30'C !)
Preorders fulfilled and store is now OPEN!
Due to unprecedented Christmas demand we are officially sold out on all units! We should be getting more boards from our suppliers mid-January. Please use the back order button on the item you want to receive the first batch out. Thank you everybody for your support on our project!
Who doesn't like a preview?
So here it is half-way its prototyping phase.
What you see here is an integration of OpenHAB with the Hestia software.
A few remarks:
1. Our main concern is thermal pollution - the temp sensor gets affected by the heat produced by the CPU (SoC) due to the very compact design. The initially onboard DHT22 sensor had to be moved 3cm further to get accurate readings, hence the wires you see.
2. Various case openings were used. This is still not final. Our designers team haven't touched it yet. Oh they will hate it as it is now. Don't tell them:)
3. The relays are not connected yet. They are just placeholders for the airflow
4. Sorry for the ugly proto board and all these wires. Once the design gets finalised, PCB team steps in
- Most of HestiaPi features
- Heating and humidity
- Support for external sensors
- Statistics (plot temperature and humidity readings over time)
- Truly open design not tied to a commercial case like before as a 3D printable version of it will be release on Github
Features to consider securing before releasing:
- On-screen provisioning - no need for a laptop during installation
- Support for multiple external setpoints
Hope you like it !

...that HestiaPi Touch will actually be powered by RasPi Zero under the hood?
Here it is:
Head over the downloads section for the new image available.
In this release you will find:
1. Authentication for the web interface. Use pi/hestia for username/password.
Run the commands
cd /etc/apache2; sudo htpasswd -c ./authfile pi
in order to change password
2. Self expanding image file.
Download the smallest possible .img file (only the actual data).
On first boot data partition automatically expands to take over the full capacity of the SD card. Once expanded it reboots once and Hestia runs as normal afterwards.
Usually the whole process is completed in 2 minutes.
