Yes yes I know, many many threads on this
I’m trying my best to work out which one is going to be best for me but there are so many ones available it’s difficult to know which one, so I’m hoping I can get some pointers.
My main focus is automation, not security but I want to tell one someone is coming in the front door to turn the lights on in the corridor and when someone is coming in the kitchen, to turn the lights on there.
We have a dog (40lbs) and may get another in the future, possibly bigger. I understand that ceiling mount ones can be better but I need it to be battery/solar operated. If it can have a rectangular ‘range’ that would fit the kitchen well but it’s likely going to be mounted in an area that will see (indirect) sunlight.
I currently have a Wink hub (don’t ask, it’s awful) but I am planning on transitioning to ST once v2 is released so ‘compatibility’ between the too would be desired, unless you know of one that’s significantly better that wouldn’t work with the Wink hub… Anyway, I’m guessing this restricts me to ZWave/ZigBee based sensors as I believe only the Wink Hub supports Leviton/Lutron which I’ll lose when switching to ST.
Anyway, enough of my rambling. Thanks for listening and I appreciate your help.
