Waiting on hub v2 to see if I can allow ST to fully integrate with C4. I am doing it now with a custom driver I wrote to handle inbound requests. But since ST can’t parse large responses, I need a better device discovery process to add C4 devices into ST.
ST has a LONG way to go before it is remotely competitive with C4 and others in the dealer HA space.
Good news, is the C4 zigbee devices can work with ST. Bad news is the control surfaces in ST leave a ton to be desired to use any of the devices.
Ultimately, I want to be able to have ST see all my C4 devices, let the C4 hub just be a relay, trigger events from ST to C4 and poll for status of devices, etc.
Just no way I could put all my zigbee devices from C4 into ST, C4 is just miles ahead of ST in terms of media, cameras, apps, etc.
Hoping to see some significant improvements soon with Hub v2. But I’m not holding my breath. The fundamental flaw with C4 is the dealer model vs DIY. C4 will be passed up eventually by ST and the others, or absorbed by a big player (MS, Google, Apple, etc.)
I really want the best of both worlds, but to get that, I’d have to write middleware to connect ST and C4 together and that seems like a lot of work, with almost no real upside for me.
