The BEST Smart Home System money can buy!

It’s time to narrow down my smart home system and ONLY use the best! Here’s what I decided to stick with and why.

Raspberry Pi 4 with 8GB RAM: https://amzn.to/486n1b1
Z-Wave & Zigbee USB dongle: https://amzn.to/3TbBqhY
USB extender: https://amzn.to/41bY0Jn
I also have a Home Assistant SkyConnect plugged in but I’m still using Zigbee and Z-Wave devices so I haven’t used it outside of testing: https://www.home-assistant.io/skyconnect/
