SmartThings vs Aurora AOne hub?

Is there any cogent reason to buy the Aurora hub instead of the SmartThings one?

The Aurora one works with only other Aurora products where as the SmartThings one appears to be much more inclusive. When I spoke with Aurora they claimed the SmartThings hub was not as good at scheduling and scene setting as theirs but I can’t find anything to back this up.

It depends on whether you are using the official features or whether you are using custom code like webcore.

If you are using Webcore, you can create extremely complex rules. (The topic title is a clickable link)

A few, but not all, of the Aurora devices have now been officially certified as “works with SmartThings“ in the UK. There is a discussion thread open for the individual devices, but no reviews yet.
