Hi, I’m new here and I’m just jumping into home automation. I have experience with automation already. I’ve had a reef tank running for almost 5 years - completely automated. It even changes it’s own water, mixes it’s own saltwater, etc.
I purchased the SmartThings hub.
I’d like some help with choosing Zigbee or Zwave. It seems that certain things are hard to find in Zwave and vice versa for Zigbee. Bulbs for instance seem to be widely available in Zigbee as well as the majority of the plugs I find.
I understand the concept of the mesh network and it would obviously be beneficial to choose just 1. It just seems like it is difficult to find all things in only Zwave or Zigbee.
Do most of you use both? Any suggestions/input is greatly appreciated.
