I have been reading the forums waiting for my hub to arrive. I am a little confused. one recent topic about if you started over, what would you do seemed to be a lot of systems that have their own hubs. what is the main use/reason for the hubitat hub then?
seems to be a lot of options that I hadn't thought of, if I can figure out how to do them. at first, these are the things that I would like to accomplish. how do if I figure out what devices to buy to accomplish this.
- know if my garage door is open and be able to close it from anywhere with an app.
- know when someone enters my backdoor and turn the laundry room lights on. I guess turn them off again too.
- know when someone(but not the cat) is starting downstairs and turns some floor lights on and the same coming up the stairs. the complications I see is that one side is a wall and the other is open to a room where lot of action happens and to main den downstairs. I don't want that movement to trigger anything.
if I can figure out how to do these and whet my teeth then I will be happy!
