Smart Home Hub Compatibility

Technology Compatibility

How can I be sure my technology will connect?

NIGHTMARE SCENARIO: You get your new ” smart home hub ” home from the store, open the box, plug it in, and the controller can’t find the “smart light bulbs”.  So you find yourself sitting in the dark, wondering why you weren’t smart enough to check this out before you bought it, in order to see if it would connect – before you couldn’t see at all.

Taking the time to make sure your smart home devices can work together is important before you decide on what system to purchase.

The table below shows the 3 main home hubs and the list of devices that each works with.  Check it out to see if your favorite device is already listed with a specific hub.

Starting from scratch?  Make sure the hub choices have a broad enough device offering to cover every area that will be working in your home- now and for the future. Be smart about your smart home purchase.
