It’s a more mature product and the stability/reliability is night and day compared to ST. The security system is what you would expect of ST.
Yes, primary as a security system but it has an automation engine as well:
It’s no where near as flexible as a webCoRE or way out there complexity, but I’m getting away from that.
Most of my products are either or both a Works with Nest / Works with Abode approved product (Hue / LIFX / Yale / Nest / Wemo / Alexa, etc.). I plan on doing a lot of my base scheduling/integrations/automations between Nest and Hue / LIFX and then adding Keen vents as well as they work with Nest as well. I chose my devices carefully and did a lot of research before even purchasing the ST hub.
There’s an official list of works with Abode page and then there is an unofficial page where almost everything of mine works. Will replace MyQ with Linear and a few other things that are supported. I want something that remains up, can provide security and be able to automate the things that I need without going overboard.
I’m still in the mapping out stages and reviewing everything for me to transition and cover all my gaps. Am also still evaulating whether I go with Nest Secure (very slim chance) and then a different solution from a 3rd party home automation hub to cover stuff for locks (Nest x Yale if I go with Secure and their sensors) and open close sensors (Lights, Motion, Heating / cooling, and Smart Plugs (Wemo) all covered outside of a smart hub).
and no sooner than mentioning stability and reliability, this email comes across for ST:
