Repeated question, but maybe with a different spin. Please be patient.
I’m looking for confirmation that my plan will work, or tell me where I’m going wrong before I start ordering hardware.
I am trying to set up a system to:
a- operate z-wave stuff in my house and in the barn (lights, outlet, door lock, maybe myQ garage door).
b- allow stuff connected to the house hub to control stuff on the barn hub.
c- be easy to get up and running (I’m not an electronics/computer guy).
I have ethernet strung to the barn, so it is on one network with the house
From what I’ve read, 2 hubitat hubs (house, barn) connected with Hubmesh would appear to be a solution.
1- Can a device on the house hub control a device on the barn hub? Hubmesh documentation implies that devices can be shared between hubs.
2- Is setting up and connecting the two hubs simple like connecting devices to a hub? Again, the documentation implies yes,
3- Anyone know the acceptable temperature range of the C7 hub? I can't find it. I do expect the unheated barn to hit 0F or maybe negative single digits in January. Do I need to set up a heater and temp sensor to keep the electronics happy?
4- Do you see any problems with what I’m proposing?
My experience with this smart stuff is limited. I have a few locks and lights on smartthings now but that was all easy set-up. I have not found a way to connect multiple hubs with smartthings so I'm looking at Hubitat.
