So I am like so many others - current house I have smart things, harmony, hue lights and some sensors.
We're moving into a new house that I want to setup correctly using Hubitat. But I don't think I am going to get my dream come true. Here is what our plans and wishes are - where am I going to go wrong.
30 or so Hue Color Light bulbs
7 light strips
Iris Contact and motion sensors
And last but not least Google Homes (5 of them).
We really like the colored bulbs and controlling them with Google home. We like the iris contact sensors when opening closet doors. We also like motion sensors in the bathroom when you walk in and have different scenes based on the time of day.
Where will hubitat fall short of being able to control my groups of lights via voice and hubitat. Will I still have to just trigger "hue" scenes via IFTTT
What I don't have are switches. The new house has many (30 or 40) recessed LED lights - not sure of brand yet but am hoping to get switches to control them.
I hear great things about Lutron Caseta is that what I want to get to replace my wall switches? I don't want to spend a fortune but is that the best bang for my buck when it comes to dimmer switches?
Also - this one I haven't been able to nail down. There are about 4 fans that you can current infinitely adjust with dimmers - not just low med high ... Is there a switch/dimmer available to control that like the current circle dimmer they have today to control the fan? Oh and one of the fan's does have a RF remote with it.
Google home - telling things to turn on/off set scenes,
Recessed Lights - luntron caseta? (or better?)
Variable speed fan - what to use .. (I assume you'll need the brand of that)
I have some knowledge but with all the information out here - sometimes its hard to pick the right path - I want to venture into cameras and more door sensors, locks, garage sensors, sprinkler control ... home alarms and on and on .... Any suggestions - things you'd wish you'd done early on?
One thing I noticed with my current stuff is you get so far into it ... making some changes and wreak havoc on the whole system - renaming things etc.. with HA so young I guess that is to be expected.
Thanks for reading and if you have any suggestions.
