Home Assistant integration
#1
I think it'd be a neat idea for Team Kodi to work with the developers of Home Assistant. A formal partnership which will create a tight integration between Kodi and Home Assistant.

The integration would add an (optional) Home Assistant option to the Kodi home screen menu. Through which the user can manage and control their Home Assistant.

It would be an integration that wouldn't depend upon an erratically supported 3rd party add-on, but which would instead be stable, reliable and long-term. Providing the user with an easy to manage open-source home automation via the familiarity and ease of the Kodi interface.

Happy to be schooled if this a stupid or unworkable suggestion.
