Buying a house, looking for some recommendations and to check and see if my thinking is correct [R]

Hello everyone! My wife and I are going to be moving soon and we both wanted to upgrade our home automation experience as we are currently renting right now and can't do much. I wanted to share what I have already and what I'm thinking of getting as well as get some recommendations on what else I should/could get. I'm not worried about budget yet, but we will probably be willing to spend what is needed to make it nice. I'm in IT but haven't looked into much of this since we are waiting to move, but I want to get a head-start on the idea. I don't have any familiarity with the process, except with using Hue and Arlo stuff, as well as configuring Ubiquiti gear. Here we go!

Current control platform is iOS/iPadOS so we would love Siri/Siri Shortcuts/HomeKit support to keep it aggregated.

Current Hardware (if there are better options than what we have, please let me know):

  • Amazon Echos (x3) around the house for music/ home control
  • HomePod (currently in the office)
  • Google Home Hub (for the office as well)
  • 20-30 Phillips Hue bulbs. Most are the A19 (?) white bulbs, we also have 4 color bulbs and two light strips behind the TV. One motion detector in the bathroom
  • Arlo camera system with 5 cameras for indoor/outdoor surveillance
  • 1 x Ubiquiti Unifi nano HD and 1x 24 port non PoE Ubquiti switch

Concerning the voice systems, we like the ability to control things via voice and the integrations they have. I'm not sure if Echos or Nest Hub/Google Home are better for integrations with multiple systems.

What we would like to add (and would like recommendations on):

  • Smart Thermostat (heard that Ecobee is better than Nest for HomeKit support, not sure on Siri Shortcuts)
  • Notifications on washer/dryer
  • robot vacuum/mop
  • sprinkler control for either yard
  • Smart Blinds (IKEA? I know these can get very very pricey, so this may be the only area we go slowly with/ place in only specific rooms)
  • Doorbell with smart camera
  • smart door lock
  • temp sensors/leak sensors
  • garage door opener?
  • anything else that would improve/be a nice

We will also improve the network by adding any necessary wifi and cabled networking, all via Ubiquiti if possible.

Thank you in advance for the help/advice!

Smart Thermostat: I use the Honeywell Z-Wave thermostat (as my smart home is "mostly" Z-Wave). I considered Ecobee (I hate Nest), but went with this as I don't really need a "learning" this temperature when I am home, do that one when I am not home.

Sprinkler control: Rachio (Amazon Link) - best sprinkler controller I have ever had...depending on where you live, you might even get a rebate on your water due to the water savings this has.

Smart Door Lock: Kwikset (Amazon Link) - again Z-Wave as I use Z-Wave. A cool thing about this lock is that you can re-key it yourself.

Temperature Sensor: SmartThings Motion Sensor (Amazon Link) - it reports temperature, and it's ZigBee

Leak Sensor: Samsung SmartThings Leak Sensor (Amazon Link) - it's ZigBee, but I have built out a smaller ZigBee network too.

Garage Door Opener: GoControl (Amazon Link) - again Z-Wave.

Multi-Purpose Sensor: SmartThings (Amazon Link) - Open/Close, Temperature, Vibration: I have one of these on each my closet doors (when I open the door, the closet light turns on...when I close the door the light turns off). I also have one on my Gun Safe (so I get notified if my gun safe door is open...also get vibration notifications if it's being tampered with)

The temperature/motion sensor is a nice combination. For example, I have one of these outside on my lanai. When it detects motion, it turns the fans on...but only if the temperature is over 74 F). I have a few of these inside that turn on small table lamps at night when motion is detected (versus large/bright lights) because the night is dark, and full of terrors.

Don't know if you have a pool, but I use iAqualink as my pool controller. It has it's own app, and now integrates with Alexa (doesn't integrate with SmartThings yet). But it's nice being able to turn on the spa and spa heater while out for dinner, and having it be up to temperature by the time you get home.

Oh - and check out Sonos for whole house audio. I SOOOOOOOOO love my Sonos speakers.

Looking for a Water Sensor [R]

Hi all, apologies if this is in the wrong place, I wasn't sure where to post. I'm looking for a water sensor that I can place in my basement by my water heater, that will send me a text/email/app notification if my water heater leaks. Preferably battery powered, as there is not an outlet near the heater. It's in the basement and I am on the second floor of a triple decker. I'm looking for something that hopefully will be able to connect to my wifi to send such notification. Thanks!

I use the Samsung SmartThings hub with the water leak sensor. There are all sorts of useful devices/sensors that you can connect to the hub. You can also create customized actions, besides sending a text I had mine also flash all the Hub bulbs on/off a red color when it triggered.

Building a new smart home with absolutely everything thats possible - need your ideas! [R]

So Im a huge smarthome / automation nerd and will build a new house this winter. Money is not the issue, so I need your ideas for cool stuff.

Everything will be built by myself, using Arduino etc.

Currently planned:

  • Wifi only for tablets/phones but not for automation. Everything will be hardwired.

  • Intel NUC with Home assistant, and an (or several) Arduino PLC for I/O. I can program C/Python/Node-Red so automating everything myself will not be a problem.

  • Dedicated room for server infrastructure

  • CAT7 to every room

  • POE surveillance and wifi (Unifi)

  • Ceiling speaker and microphone in every room, connected to google assistant

  • Living room home cinema with automated projector

  • Digital intercom/doorbell, mailbox with sensors when the mail has arrived etc

  • Automated gardening with lawn-mower-robot and automated watering system

  • 55inch flatscreen in the hallway for at-a-glance status of the whole house. Using maybe Home-Assistant-Dashboard or Node-Red Dashboard. Maybe connect to kinect for gesture-interaction?

LEDs everywhere:

There will be adressable RGB LED strips running in every corner on the ceiling and the floors, like in an airplane. This could be used at night for easy navigation in the house. Also for great ambient light and effects. Light strips for the driveway, for every path on the garden etc.

Sensors everywhere:

  • Presence detection via PIR/Radar
  • Temp/Humidity sensors
  • Maybe pressure plates at key areas
  • Every outlet will be monitored for usage etc.
  • Open/Closed sensors for every door and window

Basic Automations:

  • Automated motorized sliding doors in the house
  • Automated heating based on temp sensors
  • Automated window blinds
  • Automated light based on presence and time
  • Automated Xiaomi Vacuum

There will be no wall switches, everything will be automated. At key points, there will be wall-mounted tablets which can be used as necessary. For this, there will be an addition to the standard 230V AC system: A low voltage system used for every sensor etc. Currently i plan to do the wiring for all the sensors via simple ethernet: Gives you 8 wires to work with for 0,44€ per meter.

The house will be powered by solar and battery. To get the best out of this, smart automation of devices is key. The more power you can use for yourself, the more cost-efficient this system gets. Instead of pushing the power not needed into the grid, one could mine ethereum and get more bang for your buck.

Criticism and ideas are welcome, I am open to everything. But the goal is still to overengineer as much as possible - I can work it out.

What can be added to this list?


Thanks all for the lovely comments, some clarifications:

I already got everything permitted, even without switches. Everybody is raging about going without switches, so I'll probably do it this way: In addition to the 230V AC grid, there will be a serparate low voltage grid for tablets, sensors, etc. Since these wires will have to be laid out anyway, I might consider adding some additional ones for future switches. A wall mounted tablet has some cables behind it anyway, so access in the future is easy.

Now on to the details:

It will be an almost passive house, powered by solar alone. All wires will come together in a single room: Every sensor cable, every motor, every light. Power consumption will be measured and all automations happen here. Light and motors via relays. Something like this.


There will be a lot of separate networks, everything will be kept as safe as possible. All third party IoT devices will be shut off from the internet. Especially door controls will be kept on their own.


House will be heated using underfloor heating, powered by an air heat-exchanger. Companies like Tecalor give you access to their devices via an API, so automating heat will be easy. So heating will only need power, provided by solar on the roof and battery.

The Brain:

The brain of the house will be Home-Assistant, Node-Red, InfluxDB, Grafana, MQTT and all the other stuff we all know and love. Whatever machine this will run on, there will always be a nightly backup to another machine which will be used if the first one fails. Even if this turns out to be unreliable: Since all the wiring meets at a central point, it will be easy in the future to switch to a different system, if need be.


This house will need hundreds of sensor inputs and outputs. At the beginning I wanted to use industrial grade devices like a Wago PLC. But these all use Modbus which I freaking hate. Alternatives are industrial graded Arduinos like the Controllino. An alternative is the Railduino. These devices are in no way less reliable and even if they turn out to be, can be easily switched out. They can be programmed using Arduino IDE, which is a joy to use.


CAT7 (or 6, whatever) cable is cheap even for sensors. Much cheaper than the usual SVV-cable. A DHT22 temp/humidity sensor can be wired over 20 meters which should be more than enough. Still, every floor will have backup wiring on its own, if in the future the distances will cause some sensors to be unreliable.

Voltage drop can be difficult to handle!

I can calculate the wire gauge, the distance and the voltage drop over that distance and in the end it might still not work. For this reason, I will wire everything with the best cables up front and handle voltage later, with a lot of testing. If some distance turns out to be too long, I will have enough time to correct things and rewire (or whatever). Walls will be accessible for about a month which should be enough.

Good suggestions from the comments:

  • People want a blog, not sure what platform? Would like to do.

  • More smartmirrors. Already planned, will wire HDMI everywhere, just in case.

  • Analytics will be of course a thing. Everything will be monitored, even to the last plant-humidity, to get that sweet Grafana graphs. :)

  • Smart aquaponics, the wife will take care of this :)

  • driveway sensors already planned, might be not necessary because of tesla gps api.

  • automated driveways, will do that too

  • heated driveway, would love to do that, not sure how?

Update 2: Everyone calm down about the switches. I will add them, you did it reddit :D

  • Some good suggestions? Already got a sonoff for testing but these are ugly... dont want a big sonoff logo on every switch...

Also I will start a blog with photos etc. Which one is best? Where everyone can comment.

Update 3: Too many comments, need time to look at all at them. In the next days I will rewrite this post to include everything. This will include best practices etc

Is the Nest thermostat worth it? [R]

My setup isn't exactly that advanced really. Echo integration with Nest works, but not as well as Google Home which is smarter, but that's because Nest is owned by Google. But I can change the temperature and find out what the temperature is set to from the Echo Dot, so that's all I need.

As far as leak sensors and contact sensors, there are some that you can set with the SmartThings hub.

There are a few others in the works with smartthings link.

I have two questions. I am assuming I need to buy two ecobees for each of my hvacs. My question is this. Will they know that each other exists...aka can they adjust each other based talking to each other. I have one gas hvac and one electric hvac with one upstairs and one downstairs. The other question is anyone aware that ecobee will work with google home. I know nest is part of google but i am just wondering. Thanks!!

I'm looking for the best platform in the home automation market that has some form of water detection. I had a water issue a year ago that resulted in 2in of water throughout my basement. Having a notification of water accumulating would have saved me several thousands dollars. I've resolved all the issues that cause the entry of water. I've gone over the top, except putting j a. Sub-pump. I have the highest elevation house on the street and the water was the result of a gutter drain clog issue. I'm going to do the water sirens but I want something that would send an update to my phone. I want to expand my home automation as well and want something dependable. I currently have the best thermostat, several protects and dropcams. I don't mind having to add another platform to my house.

i have waterbug alarms as part of a smartthings setup. they also monitor temp and humidity. basement near water tank, under sinks, etc.

check status & get alerts from smartthings & community apps. combine with a siren for audible alerts at home (in addition to any push notifications, or any other notification type you configure).

can't say it's objectively the best -- ymmv with smartthings, but i've had a great experience.

Are there any good battery powered zwave water sensor? [R]
