Buying a new home, looking for automation. What products?

Buying a new home, looking for automation. What products?

I just bought a new house and I want to make a fair, but automation. Garage door, lights, sockets, thermostats, smoke detectors, etc. Cost is definitely a factor, because I will have a lot of switches and a decent number of outlets that I want to reach. In the past, I used Ecobee, Nest, iHome, GE and ran a house to help bring objects. I would love to try to stay away from the homebridge, but I'm not afraid to use it.

So far I look at the following:

Chamberlain B750 w / myQ homebridge

Kwikset premise

Smoke detectors / CO nest

The last two Ecobee thermostats gen

Lots of ecobee + switches

iHome ISP6X or Wemo minis with the bridge

Rachio R3 Sprinkler controller

Brilliant Home Control sounds interesting just to buy anything, but I'm afraid "HomeKit Coming Soon"

Do I have to look for any suggestions or alternatives?

I also want some motion / door sensors.

Thanks!
