Long time HA guy. Started with Stanley X10 about 37 years ago. Moved to another X10 controller, the name of which I can't remember. Just too long ago. Then found the Ocelot and it was great. Moved to a new house 22 years ago and took my X10 with me. About 13 years ago the X10 modules started to fail, and so I made the move to Insteon using the ISY. Currently running the ISY at our house plus our recreational place. They have been great, with the only problem in the last 8 or 9 years being a couple of failed PLM modules.
Now time to downsize. Started looking again to see what is new. Was seriously considering ST but decided as a tinkerer that it was too "appy" for me. Plus the cloud thing was scary. Was going to stick with ISY and the Zwave module, but thought it was time for a change. Looked at Homeseer extensively and was getting ready to order when I saw a video mentioning Hubitat. Read the forums, made my lists of what I want to do, watched all the Hubitat tutorial videos and decided that the Hubitat will do all that I want it to do. It is ordered and am eager for it to arrive and get going.
After over 37 years of doing HA, I am excited for this device.
