Hey everyone! 5 years ago, as I was still a student, I built Gladys: A Jarvis-like home automation software that allowed me to control my house and automate many things in my life, just thanks to a Raspberry Pi. From my lights, music, coffee machine: anything could be automated and integrated into a nice scenario. I released the software for completely free and open-source, and quickly I saw lots of interests in the project. Years after years, I improved the software with the help of my awesome community, to bring it where we are now. Today, we now have more than 35k downloads of Gladys and more than 3 000 people in the online community. Since last year I started monetizing the project so that I can work full time on it. I did 20k$ in revenue the first year, and it's still growing. I have a new product linked to Gladys that's going to be live soon for 9.99€/month, and I can't wait to release it online! Don't hesitate to reach me if you have any question :)

This is beautiful, Pierre! I have been looking for a system just like Gladys recently, so thanks for making it! Do you have a plan to monetize in the near future?
Pierre-GillesMaker@pierregillesl · Founder of @GladysProject
@joey_tawadrous Hey! Thanks for your message :) It's already monetized since 1.5 years! On the past year, I did 20k$ in revenue on the project by selling an ebook + video pack about Gladys (only in french, that's why you don't see it on the website). All the revenue is public here => But I'm now launching an international product, the Gladys Gateway, which will be available for 9.99€/month in the coming weeks. If you want to see what's the Gladys Gateway, have a look at this Tweet Thread =>

A cool project made by @pierregillesl, really exciting to see someone make a smart home assistant as accessible and affordable as simply having to buy a rasberry pi! 🎉
