While I waited for my Smartthings pre-order I purchased a Vera Lite and some devices. Now that I’ve received my email to confirm my order I need to decide which company I want to choose for my home automation.
While programming is something I’ve done plenty of in the past, I’m not interested in doing it for this so I’m looking for either ready made apps or a high level “language” to simply the if then else kinda logic. There are some decent Vera plug-ins which do just that although the interface is a bit cryptic.
Are there any Vera users who’ve also purchased to Smartthings and if so, what are your thoughts on the two? I understand Vera has been around longer and will naturally have more mature tools. I’m wondering how people see Smarthings evolving? Vera seems to be geared more towards the technically inclined rather then (as I want to be), a simple user. Do you see Smartthings going the same way or ideally, be suited to both the technically inclined and modestly technical?
Thanks for any insight. My “reservation” expires on Friday and I need to decide.
