Hue is (almost) obsolete in my smart home.

Cupertino, January 16, 2022

I've been using Hue in setting up HomeKit since the beginning. I think a smart hue bulb was my first smart home device many years ago. I like Hue and I found the range very reliable. I used Hue for lamps, motion / light sensor, Go lamps, wall switches (to control the smart lamps and blinds in each room) and outdoor lamps. Now, with Nanoleaf bulbs, Wemo wall switch, new Eve motion / light sensor, future Eve flare and Aqara products, I barely need Hue. The only notable category of devices are outdoor lights, for which I do not think there is yet an alternative. I think the appearance of the widespread Thread devices without ads from Hue (other than making them compatible with the Hub thread) leaves Hue behind. Like I said, I had no problem with Hue, but I renovated a multi-room house and decided to use Thread products. I would have bought Hue if he had Thread devices. Although I like the way the Wemo scene will fit into the Lutron wall panel next to my smart switches.
