Dang... why didn't you do SkyBell? No subscription with that and looks more like a doorbell and not a video recorder.

If you want to get started with switches. I ordered one. Wemo products don't require a hub which is a plus IMO.

Bought one of these today:

I'm going to use it to control my living room stuff. It will work with my TV, soundbar, cable box, xbox, Google home, hue lights, and nest. I won't have to use cortana any more since she only works about 50% of the time which can be extremely frustrating.

I was thinking about it, but I need to replace my locks first. Trying to decide between the August and Schlage connected locks.

It's the biggest inconvenience in the world having to use a key to open my front door. /s

I know right?! In all seriousness, we have a real need to replace our locks (long story). So I figured if we are going to, we might as well get connected ones.

I bought this to alert me when our condensate pump fails or the tube gets clogged so we don't get water everywhere when I don't notice for a few days like what happened last week.
