Looking for some help. Been doing a combination of multiple Smart Home Tech for many years now, recently discovered Home Assistant and it sounds like what I’ve been looking for to get everything more or less under one roof and since I just moved now is the time.
I absolutely love the way HA integrated with my Lutron Casseta stuff and I’d like to find something similar for ZigBee and Zwave (I already have a bunch of both). I would much prefer a device (or devices) hard wired to my network over devices connected directly to the HA server (one, my server will not be in an ideal location for radio signals; two, I’m running HA OS as a virtual machine inside a custom NAS box and don’t want to mess with linking hardware to the VM; three, I like that there is still a cloud so if I’m away and something goes wrong with HA I can still manually do stuff via the cloud app on my phone).
I’m currently using SmartThings for these components but my understanding is there is no way for HA to do local control to that so I’d like to find something new. I was thinking Hubitat based on this thread
Based on that I expected to just find the integration in the list but it is not there. (I was able to get the manual install working but I would prefer the non manual so it would hopefully update as needed when I install a new version of HA, aka I’m worried this will break on some future HA update.)
Are there any ZigBee and/or ZWave bridges out there that work with local control and are directly supported by HA?
