I currently have a Wink hub which appears to be essentially shutting down. I mainly use Z Wave switches by GE which won't be a problem to move over. I use some of the Lutron Connected Bulb Remotes which I understand won't transfer over. I have ordered a Lutron Bridge Pro and some of the Pico remotes which if I understand things correctly will allow me to replicate the triggers from the LCBRs. We also have Echo setup and connected with Wink for some simple voice control and a Logitech Harmony Elite Remote with the Hub Extender which allows the remote to control some lights.
I understand that Hubitat doesn't really have an app and since I am starting from basically the ground up I am trying to decide how best to connect everything up and am hoping for some feedback from those with experience and knowledge.
Should I connect everything to the Hubitat and then allow Echo to control those devices and then that control can flow down to the Logitech?
Should I connect everything to Echo and then use Hubitat's more advanced features control those devices through the automation routines and the Pico remotes linked through the Lutron Bridge?
We have Apple phones and tablets, should I get an Apple hub and have that be the primary Z Wave connecting point so we can use their app to control stuff?
It just occurred to me that for local control I might need to have the Hubitat be the primary controller of all the devices, is that correct or could I still use local control should Echo or Apple be unavailable if I went that route?
Any suggestions are appreciated, the sudden shutdown of Wink has left us in a bit of a pickle and while I want to get everything back up and running quickly I don't want to lose some of the more custom features. Along those lines is there anything similar to the Wink Relay (basically a wall mounted smartphone) that works well with Hubitat?
