Production Progress and Announcing NFC Support for ESPHome

by Akshar Vastarpara

Good news is we finally got ahold of NFC IC. There were many delays in receiving the part due to components shortages. Because of this, all the production problems have been resolved, since we have everything we purchased.

After a lot of work, we’re now near completing assembly of Chhavi, and we expect to be shipping Chhavi in maximum 1 month.

NFC support for ESPHome

We have another update for Chhavi - NFC support for ESPHome (Home Assistant).

We have provided an official support for Home Assistant and ESPHome for NFC. It opens a huge door to the Home Assistant compatibility.

We also are going to provide support for a fingerprint sensor as well, within a single device.

If you’re interested, this is the repo for it:

Apologies for the delayed update. We appreciate your support of Chhavi!
