So just received my HE today and was really excited to get started. I'm like many here that I have read and switching over from Wink (their server went down 3 times in the last month and I got fed up).
After reading through for hours I:
a: discovered I am very much a novice at this.
b: feel like I bit off more than I can chew.
So wanted to get some opinions on my best way of getting started.
I currently am running about 50% of my lights via Philips Hue and the other 50% with Lutron dimmer switches. I just discovered I will now need the Bridge Pro so ordered that along with another dimmer switch to replace my Wink Relay with.
I have a couple of other ZigBee lights, but think I will replace them with Hue Bulbs (cheaper than two more Lutron dimmer switches).
Should I wait to get started until I receive the new Hub and switch and just start from scratch?
Besides that I don't have a lot, just a Schlage door lock that sounds some what of a pain to connect.
Also a few Zwave door sensors and motion sensors that once I figure out how to get them reset I imagine will pair fine.
Lastly I have some Nest cameras, a Ring doorbell, and a couple Harmony Hubs, will any of these work with the HE (or have any benefit)?
I mainly run my house off of Alexa commands, have one in almost every room, but want to make it more automated.
Sorry for the long endless rant, but if anyone can help me out, or just throw some ideas that would be awesome!
