The hardware is most assuredly not a major contributor to their bottom line, but the full product most definitely is (or at least will be). One thing is clear about companies that figure out how to get into to the home effectively: the data and control is wildly valuable, I’d argue one of the most valuable things there is in tech. That was the point of that line. Hope that makes more sense!
