RE: Suggestions for my setup? Very new here.
You have to do some thinking. The sensor that you need must:
- Support Google Home Assistant or Amazon Alexa. One of these will be your main control interface.
- In addition, you want sensors that supports ITTT (ittt.com) for more advance automation.
- The “connectivity protocol” (zigbee, RF, WiFI) they use is the one that suites you the best. I like WiFi whenever possible so that I do not have to have all kind of bridges/gateways for every product.
- Finally, you might want sensor that support custom firmware. All modern sensors (as products) they are cloud enabled and if you do not like this, you could change this (not with all products).
For home use, Sonoff products are very good devices to start. Some of them support DIY mode (using REST API), LAN mode (control locally without internet) and even installing custom firmware like Tasmota. Unfortunatelly, it is difficult to have one brand for all your sensors (or am I wrong) :)?
