So I’ve been spending a lot of time at home lately (for obvious reasons) and so I’ve decided to invest in some smart home equipment. I’m making $ 1,500 on these issues, so I want to make sure I buy the best equipment possible. Here’s what I mean: Lights: Lutron Box Switches w / the dimmers & Pico remote. I don’t want to use smart light bulbs. They are expensive, perish over time and are simply annoying to start and stop. These seem to be the best option. Cameras: I already have Google Nest cameras, so I’ll use Homebridge plugins associated with a Raspberry Pi running Linux. They work well, but I would like to know exactly what I should do to make them work best. Does HomeKit also support cloud storage? Is there a subscription? How do I keep my videos? Ringtone: I’ve decided to choose Google Nest again. I like its design compared to other natively accepted HomeKit products, such as Logitech, and other competitors, such as Amazon Ring (which also requires Homebridge). Am I making the right decision here? Is this really worth the hassle? Also cloud storage? Smart Lock: I decided to go with Schlage Sense, natively supported. Is it a good lock? It seems to work well with HomeKit, but I just don’t know. Thermostat: I decided to go with Ecobee 3 lite. It seems quite simple to install and use. Is there another one I should use? Smart bulbs: I buy smart bulbs for the lamps in my house. I have a total of 2. I decided to go with the Phillips Hue bulbs. Should I go with the Lutrons? Other alternatives? Should I stay with Smart Outlets? Smart Outlets: I currently use Eve. Should others consider them? That’s all. In total, my budget is $ 1500. I carefully chose these articles from the Snazzy Labs video, as well as recommendations from this Subhomekit.blog. Tell me what you think. Eshu
