I bought a house and the seller left a couple of smart home devices. Now I have the following:
- Ring doorbell
- Kwikset Premis
- Nest Learning Thermostat
- Philips Hue White & Color Lights
I also own 1 Amazon echo (1st gen), 2 Dots (2nd gen) and two TP-Link SmartPlugs (HS100)
I am an Android user and understand that the Premis lock only works with Apple products (currently), so let's keep this one aside for now.
How can I integrate the other things though? Which hub should I get (the sellers didn't leave that)? New Echo with hub? Or the Hue hub? Samsung SmartThings? Or an other hub? Are they even all compatible?
I would like to be able to upgrade the system later with security features (e.g. smoke detector/monoxide detector, movement detectors or cameras), smart shades or other things (any good recommendations?)
I'd be thankful for all recommendations!
