For the past 3 years or so I’ve been using a Vera system to control all my z-wave home automation devices. I recently started considering switching over to SmartThings due to the lack of support and updates from Vera. I have a specific set of needs that Vera has been meeting so far and I wanted to make sure SmartThings could do the same before I switched. I have a plethora of z-wave switches and outlets in my house that are currently controlled with my Vera. I also have it linked up to my Nest thermostat. I have scenes set up to turn lights on at a specific time in the mornings when I need to wake up. I also have certain lights set up to turn on automatically when either my wife or I arrive home after the sun has set using our iPhones as locators and a geofence setup. Finally, using the same geofence setup, I have my nest thermostat automatically go into away mode when both my wife and I are out of the house and switch back to home when we arrive home.
I know there isn’t anything overly complex in my needs but I wanted to make sure SmartThings could do it all before I jumped ship.
