New to Hubitat, but not to home automation.
At the moment, I've got the following:
- Amazon Echo
- SONOS Speakers
- LG TV
- LightwaveRF Light Switches (v1, so no feedback on state)
This setup has worked reasonably well, but I'm fed up with the LightwaveRF (LWRF) switches not providing feedback, and v2 of LWRF requires a connection back to their cloud, which I'm not happy about.
I'm also looking for something that my wife and kids can easily code states into etc should they want to, and with a wide range of platforms that it will link into, and with the option for commercial support (which HomeAssistant doesn't really have).
Hubitat seems to fit the bill nicely in all these areas, so I'm very much tempted to make the leap, however I've got a couple of questions that I can't find the answer to anywhere else:
- Are there any dimmable light-switches which don't require a neutral wire that are compatible with Hubitat?
- Is there anywhere I can track the progress of the AONE plug sockets (I'd rather not have any "wall warts" in order to control my power, they look really ugly, but I'm also struggling to find UK plug wall sockets!)
I'm deliberately avoiding Hue and other smart-bulbs because I need this to "just work" when my mother-in-law/babysitter comes over - they shouldn't need to install an app just to get the lighting to work, and I shouldn't have to write a rule in a Home Automation solution just to turn a bulb on and off!
Anyway, all help gratefully accepted, it looks like a great platform, and as we're about to rewire most of the downstairs of the house (including pulling CAT6e to all light fittings, switches, and plug sockets "just in case"), this could be a great solution for us!
