I am building a new home. I was planning on using smartthings for the entire build (over 40 motion sensors, all light switches zwave, etc.).
I’ve been “testing” smartthings in my current home and it is great. However, the battery powered motion sensors worry me. Every year or so I will be required to change out 40 motion sensor batteries.
Is there a solution for powered motion sensors (similar to a wired alarm system)? If not, what do people recommend as a home automation setup for new construction?
My budget is about $7000 for all sensors.
