The biggest issue with wifi is no good low power support as of now. You still need zwave or ZigBee for battery operated door/window sensors, motion sensors, leak sensors. My ZigBee devices go for...

Another vouch for Zooz - I have ~30 in my house, only switches I've had trouble with are a couple of z-wave fan controllers I picked up at lowes.

My experience is a mix of those posted here. I have about 40 of them operating across multiple properties over the past 3-5 years. I would say I have experienced about a 20-30% failure rate on...

Do not buy any of the used GE/Jasco switches that are being sold from Amazon Warehouse Deals. I bought a bunch thinking I was getting a good deal and 3/4 of them were returns that were the first...

Zooz switches feel so cheap to click. I’ve had ge Jasco switches in two of my houses, 15 in one house for last 11 years no issues and 20 in my current house for 5 years no issues.

Check, I had one die on me last year, and I found out that GE had extended the warranty period. I called them and they sent me a replacement.

But realistically, it’s good enough for 98% of people. (Made up number, but really the extreme automation stuff is still very niche) Alexa and run automations that the majority would be more than...

These do not last. I repeat, they will give out after a few years. Happened to all of mine, one by one after about 3 years.

The big everyday consumer gateways from Apple, Google, Alexa, and SmartThings (Samsung) are all cloud based. They're not popular because they have the best gateways. They're popular because they...

Alexa hubs = no zwave Google Nest Hubs (Android) = no zwave Apple HomeKit (Apple TV and other Apple Hubs) = no zwave So all the big everyday “consumer” devices do not support it. I would...

Avoid at all costs! I really wanted to like these. I bought and installed about 10 of them throughout my house because I have smaller wall boxes and these are a lot thinner than Leviton Z-wave...

Matter is a good development, and I hope it gets popular. But there's no reason to stop buying z-wave or zigbee. This is less of an issue with zwave vs matter and more an issue with SmartThings not...

How long have people been using Zooz? Jasco has been around for a long time, so it might just be survior/victim bias if Jasco seems problematic at the end of a couple of years. I've had GE/Jasco...
