Im about to start down the HA track and im wondering what Hub to go for?
Initially I want to be able to monitor power use of devices, control switches and lights and see/do all of this remotely when away from home.
Initially i was thinking of a Fibaro Hub or Vera but now I'm thinking of a Aeotec Z Stick (on a laptop/minipc of some kind) with some fibaro/Aeotec controllers and sensors. Then with some software I purchase such as HomeSeer or OpenHab.
How good are these at reporting on power usage?
I'm also interested in what mobile apps people use?
Any advice is much appreciated.
