I’m pretty new to the smart home game but I like it so far.
1 - Bought a Hue bridge with some color and white bulbs. Working fine for the most part - HomeKit / Siri are working fine.
2 - I’m looking at either the Nest or Ecobee thermostat - both seem to have good reviews. I assume I would need a separate bridge to control either of these products?
3 - Looking at the Lurton Caseta in wall dimmer switch to control my existing lights (non Hue) in my living room.
Am I correct in that I would need 3 different bridges to control the above?
Am I correct that the Smartthings bridge would take care of everything and I would only need 1 bridge?
Many of the reviews that I’m reading (Amazon specifically) on Smartthings are very poor. Buggy, difficult to setup etc…I want something simple and reliable. Is Smartthings the best choice or should I be looking elsewhere?
