I’ve set up dozens of smart home gadgets across two homes and two apartments over the last five years. Together, they would offer a home that, while well-connected, could also work entirely inside a home network and switch between controlling ecosystems with ease. Hue bulbs were, for me and many others, a first step into home automation.

Source: I was wrong to ignore Zigbee and Z-Wave. They’re the best part of my smart home.

I am currently regretting using Google Home because, slowly but surely, it’s losing Google’s attention and breaking down. It was much nicer just a few years ago.

Maybe Zigbee and Z-Wave are the way forward.
