Been lurking for a while and finally purchased Hubitat which is now on sale. Relatively new to home automation. I currently have Lutron switches (no pro bridge yet), Alexa, ring doorbell, and some wifi outlets.
I want to move away from wifi items to zwave/zigbee. I've read a lot of good things about zwave plus.
I'm currently looking into outlets, locks, water sensors, door/window sensors. Zwave/zigbee has opened up many new companies/products than I was looking at before. In the devices section it looks like people are using all kinds of different products from different companies, are they all created equal? Is there a list of better/preferred companies or products? Or are they each valued on their own merit individually. I know most are likely supported, but while I want to save money I don't want cheap products that will break.
Looking for any and all recommendations, especially ahead of prime day (7/15-16).
