Those of you who I have seen since we bought our new house are probably aware that I decided that I wanted to make the house as smart as possible. There are a ton of options out for home automation and only a few companies that can work with all the different parts. Since I have learned quite a bit and doubt I will ever really be done I figure I would write it up.

Let’s start by detailing all the parts as I have found them and then I will try to write up each part

  • Hub (Control Center)
  1. Xfinity
  2. Lutron
  3. MyQ
  4. Wink Relay
  5. Wink Hub
  • Thermostat¬†– Nest Take one
    • Upgrade Thermostat – EcoBee
  • In wall switches/dimmers
  • In wall outlets
    • Quirky Outlink
  • Voice activation
    • Siri
    • Amazon Echo
  • Audio
  • Garage Door
  • Blinds

I am sure more pieces will come up so I will plan to update this post as I get into them.
