I purchased my Hubitat last year but never got around to setting it up due to the mess of current smart devices we have scattered everywhere. We have about (18) Sengled Element smart bulbs, (14) Gosund smart outlets, (3) Woods WION outdoor outlets, and (2) Emerson thermostats running on a Wink hub and (5) Amazon Echo's scattered throughout the house. Like I said, it's a mess of devices that I went with based on pricing when first getting home automation going. I purchased the Hubitat after having some issues with the Wink hub but then after realizing the daunting task of switching all the devices over, plus the questionable ability to have the Gosund devices work, caused me to keep the Hubitat on the side until now.
While everything works now, I'd like to add the ability for some smart buttons to better control scenes and possibly help trigger my recently added (4) Arlo Pro 2 security cameras instead of needing to use the app all the time to arm and disarm. The ideal situation would be to have a button by our back garage door entry that we could tap when we come and go to arm and disarm, as well turn on/off groups of lights in the house. Likewise, a remote by the bed to trigger scenes would be a plus as well. I've been reading on here and it seems that the Lutron Caseta hub and Pico remotes might be able to manage all of this as well as work with the Hubitat hub, is this correct? Will the Arlo cameras be able to be triggered off and on this way as well?
I'm not tied to the current group of smart bulbs and smart outlets and the idea of having the ability to use a wall switch to control groups of lights is appealing as well, especially since Alexa does not always respond to my wife as needed sometimes. What would be the best option to replace the indoor smart outlets though to manage the table lamps and tv's that they control?
Sorry for so many questions but just need some guidance on the best path forward. I'd rather spend the money now to create the right environment then try to use what's in place now if it will provide the control I'm looking for.
Thanks in advance!
