I want to transition to a smart home, and after some research Hubitat looks like it might be a good fit.
I have a 1940's home and we're in the process of redoing our kitchen.
We're going to update our ancient HVAC system in the next year, and once of the main things I'm interested in is having our HVAC system work with our soon-to-be-replaced ceiling fans. Our house has vents about 7' off the floor, which is a drag in the winter since all the warm air just stays up there and doesn't circulate as much as we'd like.
I think that adding some smart fans and/or plugs, and then setting up some logic where they'll run when the HVAC goes on and someone is at home would be a help.
Any guidance on this (say, a fan, or something in the fan AC wiring)? I was going to get a new ceiling fan for our main living area since our contractor will be running new wire up there anyway as part of the kitchen remodel. Then, once we get a new HVAC system installed I would install an EcoBee. Our current two wire thermostat will have to do for the meantime.
Additionally, we're installing undercabinet lighting and I'd like to schedule the lights to go on during the evenings when we're at home. Is that something to set up in the outlets and wiring, or am I better served to look at the units themselves? FWIW, we're a semi-Google home (Android, Chromebooks).
