I recently moved into a house and am thinking of adding some automation to my home and I prefer to use HomeKit when it is available. Here we use Apple products, so this is the preference.

** I started looking at switches, bulbs, sockets, locks and I see that some brands have their own hubs that need to be installed. Do people stay with a single brand or do you just start stacking these hubs next to the router? ** At first I didn't like the idea of Hubs believing that there shouldn't be a "middle man," but I came to the realization that they help offset the number of direct connections to the router, because too much can slow things down. . I'm not sure where to start with anything, but I was thinking that some holiday lights might be nice to be on Smart Plugs, maybe the switches might be good for turning off a light when kids have forgotten and don't need to walk. through a few rooms.
I installed a Nest Hello (bell) and a thermostat - I don't know native HK, but I can be with Starling or Hoobs (?).
