Hi... I have a new Hubitat Elevation, and have been waiting to get some devices to connect to it. Currently everything I have is generic WiFi enabled "dumb" smart stuff. Currently, our rented modem/router is a piece of crap that needs rebooting once a week or so, and I was wondering if this is something I can do with my hub. Where are my commands stored? I believe that they are 'Scenes', right?
Here is my idea:
I would get a good Hubitat compatible smart plug, and plug my router into it. Then I could create a scene that would power down that plug, wait 10 seconds, and power it back up. I know that for the time that the modem/router was offline, and the time it took to reinitialize, I would be flying blind, but I don't need the network for the Hubitat to send the commands themselves to the smart plug, right? There is nothing needed for communications between the hub and the devices, just for communicating with the hub via my phone or tablet, is that correct?
This is kind of an experiment in laziness, but would also help me truly understand the difference between the Hubitat Elevation and just using a Google Home device and WiFi enabled lightbulbs and stuff.
