This is my first post, so i hope I’m posting in the right area.
I’m building my H.A. around me having roommates and myself. So this will be dealing with security and convenience.
The product I have now: ST Hub Starter Kit, motion sensor, multi propose sensor, plug in outlet, Yale Touchscreen deadbolt, DLink (DCS-2330L) outdoor camera.
I’m using the motion sensor for my medicine door and for now i am using the DLink camera for monitoring that. I’m probably going to be moving the camera to the front door to where my Yale touchscreen deadbolt is located.
Now on to my project and ideas:
I’m wanting to get LED strips to wrap around the top of the wall where it meets the ceiling in my living room.
I’m wanting to get smart lights switches for the kitchen light and the two bathrooms. (doing this so I don’t have to keep telling my roommates to turn off the lights when you leave those rooms.)
I’m wanting to get a smart thermostat.
For the products I’m thinking about getting and questions i have with some of them
LED Strips: I’m thinking about going with what i found in the link below.
If I read it correctly, All I have to buy is
- SUPERNIGHT 32.8ft 10M Non-waterproof RGB LED Flexible Strip Kit ,SMD 5050 600leds LED Light Strip + 44Key Remote Controller + 24V 5A Power
- Fibaro Z-Wave RGBW Controller Model FGRGB-101.
PLEASE TELL ME if that is all I need to buy or what I need to buy. To have LED strip lights and get them to connect to ST.
For the Light Switches: I don’t have a neutral and wanting to use LED’s.
Light Switches: Lutrons
If I’m correct Lutrons will not communicate with ST. While researching about it. I found a Youtube video about it.
Is this what I have to do? By buying a Staples Connect?
For the thermostat… I have 2 roommates and all of us have different schedules and ones works different schedules each week. Will the Nest be the best option? Or is there a better product out there.
