Federation. Maybe even as say, I have a friend with a FreedomBox as well, and then we could replicate/backup each others data without having access to each others data.

@olimex
Also, having the services containerized, would allow for high availability with orchestration (k8s) of multiple nodes.

@olimex what about home automation? something like home assistant with easy setup for new users , try and get people away from proprietary platforms like Samsung smart things .

@olimex
For off-site sync/backup I'd consider using btrfs. It's great for RAID too.

@olimex

An on-device voice assistant like snips (snips.ai/) would be awesome. I hate the thought of having Google or Microsoft listening in my home. It wouldn't require much extra hardware and would be at strong selling point for me.

@olimex
microphones and a speaker to support something like snips would be great
