I just bought a new home and inherited a few HA products. I am thinking about investing in a ST hub so that I can streamline all of them for automation. Does ST give me one user interface for all of these or will I still need to go into each individual app for review or to change settings? Is it best to stick with one product line for HA? Obviously this would put me at risk of being SOL if one were to go under but I don’t think any of these companies are going any where.
Here is what I have… August Smart Lock, 2 Philips Hue bulbs with the Hue Hub, Honeywell Skybell Slim, Chamberlain WiFi garage door opener, Echo Dot, Google Home, TP Link Kasa Power Strip, Wyza Camera and Arlo Camera.
There are a few things I would like to add. I’d like to do smart lighting through my entire house, add another smart lock, and I am thinking of going with SimpliSafe for my security system but I’m not too excited about adding another brand of camera to the mix. Lastly, I have a Unifi AP connected to a TP Link router for my wifi. I still have no idea how to best utilize the Access Point, but plan to figure that out this weekend. Thanks in advance for the help.
