I’m not sure if I’m in the right place, but hope so. Thanks for reading.
I have built a home automation system with Vera lite. In an unlikely scenario, I am splitting off into two locations: The Vera lite will likely now go to Location B, along with a bunch of automated stuff I have running.
The original location, Location A, will therefore need a new hub. So I’ll likely get Vera Edge, or a Smartthings Hub. Seems to me I should get just an Edge for now, since I don’t have any non-Zwave parts. I am thinking of decking out my home with Philips lightstrips, in which case I will need something that can talk to both systems right? I hear that this community is awesome in terms of support, development, etc, so I am considering this option.
So can anyone advocate one direction or the other?
I should mention that my world is full of Apple devices, from Macs to iPads and iPhones to Apple TV. I am hopeful that HomeKit will not suck. Please feel free to weigh in on that.
