Home Automation Devices I Use

Here is a list of all the products that I use and a brief of where/why they are used

Six Samsung SmartThings Motion Sensor – These are mainly used in blind spots of the Aeon Multisensor 6 or places that I don’t need all the extra data just need Motion
Four Samsung SmartThings Multi Sensor – These are on the important doors of the house Front, Back, Shed
Two Samsung SmartThings Presence Sensor – These are just backup to our Life360 Presence Service
Three SmartThings Outlet – These are mainly to boost the ZigBee signal around house and get it to the shed only the shed powers anything which is just some LED’s that are in the garden.
Two Samsung SmartThings Moisture Sensor – One is by the boiler & washing machine the other is by the dishwasher
Four Xiaomi Buttons – These are just simple push buttons its something I would like to replace as they can be hit and miss on if it registers the hit I believe the Aqara buttons are better but won’t be trying them I’ll go with a different brand
Six Xiaomi Door/Window Sensor – Got these to please the other half so she could check all the downstairs windows are shut
Fifteen Xiaomi Aqara Door/Window Sensor – She like it so much I was made to do every window in the house and I also did every internal door
Two GreenWave PowerNode Outlet – Got these cheap off Ebay one does the tumble dyer notifications and the other is used with our heated under-blanket in the bedroom
One TKB-TZ69E Outlet – Got this to do the washing machine notifications I haven’t found it very reliable in turning off and on but I don’t use that feature just the power monitoring
One Fibaro FGK-101 Door and Window Sensor – White – This is left over from the Smart Doorbell for under £50 pounds as I now have a ring doorbell this is now used on an internal door

Xiaomi Mi Cube – Don’t use it but its connected and in my man draw
Two Philips Hue Hubs – I have two one doing upstairs and one downstairs this is due to the hubs having a device limit a few years ago
Twenty-four Philips Hue White Bulbs – That’s a lot of lights
Four Philips Hue White and Colour Ambience – GU10 – I have four downlights in the Living room not used very much due to the blues & greens not that great on the 2nd Gen Colours and can’t justify £150 pounds to upgrade them to 3rd Gen
