Greetings from Singapore! I’ll be getting my new home in a few months time and happened to come across SmartThings home automation which I really find interesting and would like to integrate into my new house.
The thing is that I don’t have any technical nor programming skills which I think will be essential in setting up a home automation? I have sourced for local contractors to set up a simple automation and they are quoting me about $1500USD for the set-up. Would like to ask if this is considered a fair amount?
My set-up is fairly simple:
- 2-3 motion sensors
- 10-15 sets of power outlets (including light switches)
- 1 temperature sensor
- 1 smart thing hub
My concern here is that the products I purchase from Amazon.uk will not be compatible and I may end up incurring more money than allowing an expert do it for me. Total newbie here but willing to learn! Hope you guys can share your views
