We live in a town with just 2 builders.

You can only buy a house from one of them (Builder G and Builder A).

If you buy a house from Builder A, you won't be able to install any appliances or make any changes unless approved by A.

To get into A's approved list of products/applianced, you need to pay them a 30% commission...

This would never be accepted in the real world, but we go for it on the App stores.

Not the perfect analogy, but explains what happens with Apple and Google.

Actually, people here were describing their experiences with home automation providers... and what you wrote is not only a metaphor 😂
