I am a PhD in Analytical Chemist working for the Dow Chemical company for more than 30 years. I have built custom analytical instruments and so I’m somewhat familiar with electronic devices.
Over the last two years, I have been slowing adding automation to my home primarily as a hobby. I started with Smart Things and converted to Hubitat about ~8 months ago. I really like the flexibility of the Hubitat system. Currently I have 64 devices operating in my home and barn. I expect to add another 20 or so devices over the next few years and to constantly refine the automation logic.
I am excited about the capabilities of the new Red series switches and dimmers and I am planning several ways to use these to provide additional home controls and feedback.
