What does "Works with Home Assistant" even mean?

It was encouraging to see that U-Tec signed up for the Works with Home Assistant program last October. But as far as I can tell, aside from a press release, that has yielded absolutely nothing.

There’s still no home assistant integration except for the zwave lock (to your credit, you did include this caveat in the announcement).

The zwave lock still integrates just as poorly as it did at launch. It’s been 11 months since the last engagement from anyone at U-Tec on the zwave improvements thread.

As far as I can tell, you haven’t provided any firmware updates that can be installed over zwave.

Is there any progress being made at all on a more fully-featured home automation experience? I’d love to be proven wrong here, but it really sounds like you’ve totally given up on Home Assistant after the initial announcement.
