I am looking into getting one central hub that allows me to control all other devices without the need to get additional hubs. For example, Hue bulbs come with their own hub, and I have seem some door locks that come with their own hub.
What I ideally want is one single hub to rule them all, and to be able to add multiple devices as I go, all which can be controlled by IFTTT. It seems that SmartThings is one of the only, if not only, programs that integrated with IFTTT.
Will the SmartThings hub allow me to control these devices on it’s own, and set up rules in IFTTT? Or will I still need Hubs like the one that comes with the Hue start pack?
