Tag Pilot is a free app and funding has to come from somewhere. We offer enhanced capabilities to our hardware customers. Some of these customers have paid for additional features to be added to the app to work with their hardware.
We have also heard that there has been some shenanigans with the bidding process for fire work in that region and we are staying out of it. We would love for Tag Pilot to be used in a positive manner but we also have a strong distaste for unfair practices.
If someone (or some company) really wants access to it we are pretty sure they know how to get it.
