Begginer on home automation (Portugal)

Hello all, this is my first post here so let me say Hi to everyone.

I’m thinking in automatize some devices in my house but I dont know what is the best system/hubs and protocols.

I know smartthings supports zwave and zigbee protocols but almost all my home devices works with RF, like my curtains (they work with this system -> ), my car gate that opens with this remote - > ).

I also want to remotely control and/or program like cronjobs some lighs I can mannualy control in my electricity cabinet. I heard it could work with Sonoff but i think it is IR, not zware or zigbee.

Another question I have is to know if is possible to create conditions or scenes, like… if I open the car gate (with smartthings), and if time is more than 6pm, the garden lighs will turn on (they are the ones that i need to turn on/off in the cabinet) and automatically turn off after 5 minutes.

If is not asking too much, can you point me the hardware I will need to make this last scene?

Kind regards,
João Campos

What country are you in? The device selection does vary somewhat, And the newest smartthings hubs are “region locked.” That means you will not be able to complete setup if you live in a country which is not authorised for that model hub.

Hi JD, thanks for your reply.
