I have the following iot devices in my house:
Seemingly Wink Only (without additional hardware):
- Liftmaster garage door opener with wifi (cloud controlled by wink)
- Emerson Sensi wifi thermostats (cloud controlled by wink)
- Lutron caseta dimmers with remotes (for locations that I want to wirelessly control with a remote, i.e., where my electrician put a switch in the wrong place) (direct controlled by wink)
- GE Dimmers with 3way slaves
- nest camera (via cloud) though usually use the nest app
Seemingly ST only:
- Kwikset 916 zwave keypad lock with ability to change codes (currently using the new official ST app as was having trouble with the unofficial app and don’t seem to need the extra features)
- Honeywell wifi garage thermostat (currently not connecting to wifi and working with honeywell support that is thinking I have a voltage issue)
- DSC alarm system with EyezOn (though don’t use EyezOn much as their app isn’t user friendly at all and not willing to pay an extra $5/mo after already paying for the hardware)
- I will be adding cameras controlled by blue iris
- sometype of doorbell or camera doorbell
- more lights/dimmers - will probably stick with GE in the future
- flood sensor for the basement (waiting for a cheap one)
- moisture sensor for the basement (waiting for a cheap one)
I hate having to run two separate hubs. I almost feel silly running ST just to change lock codes, but otherwise I need to unscrew the lock every time I want to let a new babysitter in. I guess if wink ever came out with a lock manager app I could just consolidate on wink. Would love to switch to smart things instead as it seems more flexible but seems like it doesn’t work with a lot of my devices unless someone knows a trick to get caseta to work with smartthings without additional hardware.
Does anyone know if zwave repeating works just within hub network or for all zwave devices in range (i.e., if the GE light switches are on the wink hub will they still repeat the ST zwave signal)?
Ideas that won’t add to my cost structure are very welcome.
