My scenario: I am using Home Assistant with Z-wave stick. NO hubitat hub NOR Smarthings hub.
I have 2 gen 2 red dimmers that I want to associate to each other. From what I have read, it sounds like I need a Smarthings hub for this purpose. I have already created the custom code in the IDE etc and have the app on my phone; but am unable to add switches to the Smarthings app without a hub.
SO, given that Smartthings is becoming Aotec etc/being depricated etc, and I only need a hub to get my switches (~20) into the smarthings app so I can associate a few of them, COuld I get an old used version 2 Smarthings hub for this purpose?
Are there any other cheaper/free methods for associating switches?
