Re: iot landfill

The answer is simple, support.

If you use an intermediary server then you do not need to worry about opening ports on routers.

Imagine trying to provide support to every type of router, it would be a nightmare and push the price up significantly.

Almost every smart devices does this, TV, Radio, Games Consoles, Smart Phones etc.
