Home Assistant is pretty good and is free. It will run on a Rpi and you would just need one of these Amazon productIt is about as cheap a solution you will get for a Home Hub. That configuration would give you ZWave and Wifi control
I saw some of the discussions around the Shelly modules. I wasn't looking at them as didn't want a wifi solution (additional traffic/bandwidth/inability to use when wifi goes down). Having said that if I went with the Fibaro Single Switch option above (not the ZWave Dimmer2) then I'd be in the same boat.
I do appreciate I'm limited myself with HomeKit (didn't even use it for ages), but have become quite accustomed to switching things off from my watch, if someone didn't hit the switch, rather than voice command or an app on my phone.
This probably needs it's own thread but I'll try extending this one rather than Spam the forum.
I'll have two circuits of outside lights in this scenario/problem. (Soffit lights over patio and then bulk head lighting down the side of the house).
There are also two exit doors - side and rear. I'd like to have switches at both doors that control both sets of lights.
I know I can do this with standard wiring with a 'strapper' cable between the two switches creating a 2 way switched light - one switch at each door. I was also going to look at adding Fibaro dimmer to allow the patio lights to be dimmed and also provide voice control/dusk till dawn possibilities etc.
@mushii Did I read you say you can make a fibaro dimmer at one switch control a module on another circuit that it isn't connected to? Or did I imagine that? If that is possible it would remove the need to run the 2 way wiring between the two switches.
Yes what you want to do is easy enough, I have 3 sets of outdoor lights on Fibaro modules, front, side and rear. I never touch a switch as they are on dawn till dusk controlled by Homeseer and Alexa. But they all have local switches.
