I’ve been a Vera user for a while Vera lite now a Vera plus and like a lot of other user I’ve been patiently waiting for more and better integrations into some of the devices I have. Also when shopping for a new device making sure it works with Vera limits my choices to nothing or next to nothing. So I’ve decided to move on to another smart hub. Right now I have a raspberry pi kit on it’s way to me and the plan is to keep the vera plus as a Z-wave interface. Since I’m a fan of open source development I plan on using either Home Assistant or OpenHAB. Here are the current devices I want to integrate into this setup
z-wave dimmers, switches and sensors “thru Vera”
Lutron Cassita Dimmers and Pico Remotes “Thru Lutron Pro Hub”
2 Harmony Hubs
Sonoff wifi switches flashed with ESPeasy firmware
Roomba 960 vacuum
I want to add a door bell camera, and hose end water valve either melnor or orbit.
I don’t really code but can read and pretty much figure out the syntax and what does what.
But I would prefer a gui interface.
So opinions what would be a better choice Home Assistant or OpenHab
