I’m now planning how to install a smart system in my home, at first it will be kitchen multi-media and probably lights as well as a smart zoned heating system. I’ve got a Samsung Galaxy note pro with Android that will be installed in the kitchen for web browsing playing apple music and as a central controller for all smart devices. I might also use iphones for certain things as the system grows but the tablet will have everything on.
From day 1 i need to install a zoned heating system, the best way to do this is with smart trv’s that connect via a controller to turn the boiler on if any one room gets too cold while keeping the trv’s closed in rooms that are already warm enough.
From day 2 i want to set up all 5 lighting circuits in the kitchen on smart switches with physical wall switches and controls through the tablet.
I want to be sure that the platform i choose is expandable to things like outdoor lights, electric gates etc but most of that can be achieved as long as smart switches or relays are available that i can wire in to the other systems.
So currently I’m thinking about a Samsung SmartThings hub with lightwave lighting and lightwave trv’s. Does this seem like a sensible approach?
Will i need the Lightwave link or link+ devices or will the individual components talk directly with the SmartThings hub?
I assume i can set up voice control for some things using the Samsung Galaxy note?
Any suggestions or help is welcomed.
