Hey folks, I’d like to build a hardware wish list for my basement finishing project. I’ve got a smattering of different devices on my main floor, and I’d like to be a little more consistent in the basement. Some specs:
2200 square feet
2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a storage room, mechanical room, a study, a rec space / bar / TV room
Forced air HVAC is controlled by ecobee.
The hydronic radiant heated concrete slab just has a dumb tekmar thermostat presently.
The mechanical room has all my network and home automation gear
Its all open space right now, so I have the opportunity to do this properly.
My communications preference has shaken out like most, I would expect: wired > Z-wave > Zigbee > WiFi. Smartthings is of course my platform.
I’ve looked at things like the aeotec multisensors, but if there’s other options, I ought to evaluate them. I’d like as much instrumentation and control in each room as possible (while staying married, of course )
I’d love to hear your ideas for what products to look at. Thanks in advance
