First time post here so I'm not sure that my pictures will upload, but I will update as soon as possible!
We just bought a new home and are dabbling with home automation. My biggest dilemma right now is a solution for outdated can lights. There are over 60 can lights on the main floor alone and we are struggling to find the best option.
Color change warm to cool, and full color change without having to manually switch an analog switch to change colors.
Must screw into existing cans. (6'')
zigbee/zeewave (although we have awesome internet, we are doing a lot of smart technology in the house and think that 60 individual devices just for can lights alone is excessive.) I don't really care to change each individual light color, but the kitchen may be cool light vs the den being warm light, kids room being colored etc.
We want ability to mount iPads with magnetic chargers, and use them as control panels in several rooms, also using habitat app to control remotely.
The two solutions I think are best are the following:
Philips Hue - see link below. The only downfall I see is they are $50 minimum each, and that doesn't include any smart switches.
- Sumaote - Very budget friendly, I just don't think they work with Habitat yet.
The lighting is our priority right now, but I would really be open to paying for qualified consultation for the full picture of what we are trying to do. Thank you for your help.
