Anyone into Home Automation?

Post by phdavis » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:29 pm

Anyone into Home Automation? SmartThings, Hue, Zigee, ZWave, Alexa, etc? I've thought about starting up a section for this if there's interest, and I just recently received a handful of Hue bulbs for free (waiting on them in the mail). Other than a couple Alexa/Echo devices around the house, we haven't really done much else yet.

I'm messing with it a little bit. Currently trying to get a Z-Wave receiver so I can get it hooked up to my controller server and start actually doing things. Homeseer is a pretty good out of the box solution, but I've decided to give https://www.domoticz.com/ a try

I'm actually in the same boat. I'll have to check out Domo I had some free credits from a retailer and picked up a smart bulb to mess with and get some ideas yesterday.
