I have a moderate sized home with:
- ~100 IRIS compatible devices of all kinds, including sensors, water softener, water heater, garage opener, smart buttons, cameras, lights, leak detectors, and water shutoff valves.
- Trane Zwave/Nexia Thermostat -- unable to switch to anything else due to how trane implements most of its own HVAC features/intelligence within the thermostat.
- ~12 Nest Protects
- Pentair Screenlogic Pool Automation
- ~12 Alexa Devices of various forms
- Replacing the existing Clothes Washer/Dryer and Refrigerator will be the top of the line Samsung appliances which might be designed to connected to smart things
- Going forward will also be replacing all the locks and putting more cameras in (unsure which vendor I will use..was leaning towards ring for cameras and schlage for locks...but very open minded at moment).
- I also want to put into place more monitoring of solar panels/electrical panel/electric vehicle chargers
- I may also want to eventually migrate out of aerogarden hydroponics towards something more home made and flexible.
I hate having to deal with a dozen different vendor solutions each with their own website and cloud infrastructure.
What should I watch out for in planning out a long term migration/consolidation and would Hubitat or Smart Things be best?
