I am planning to make my house a smart secure house. I did lot of research, but it seems like I am still missing lot of information. I would like the community to share their experience and help me out in accomplishing this task.
So far this is what I have come up with (listed below). However there are few more things that I am not sure what to get. If you can take a look at the requirement section and provide recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.
Note: I do not want to pay any sort of subscription so if you are recommending any products or any of my existing products charge subscription fee please let me know
