Why do I have to pay for updates?
It's unusual for hardware companies to charge for software updates, but TinyPilot has to operate a bit differently. We're a small company with no investors. The only way we can afford continuous, long-term software improvements is if our customers continue to invest in our products financially.
Many large hardware companies provide updates for free because they put their products into maintenance mode as soon as they're released. They avoid adding new features to existing products and instead focus all of their energy on building their next shiny product.
TinyPilot wants a sustainable, long-term relationship with our customers. We're still delivering new features to customers who purchased the first generation of TinyPilot devices. To do that, we need to pay developers and technical support staff for ongoing improvements.
The best way we've found to align interests between TinyPilot and our customers is to give perpetual rights to previous versions and charge an annual fee for updates.
Do I have to renew?
No! If you're happy with the version of TinyPilot Pro that you have, you can use it forever.
