I have a 3 storey house currently being gutted and have been studying homey. So far I am getting conflicting answers (or I am not understanding things right - if so, please correct me)
I wish to cover the entire house in hue bulbs, (about 130). I understand I will need at least 3 hue bridges for this. In addition, I intend to get about 20 iotty 3 gang switches with which to physically control the lighting as well. On top of that, will probably install a doorbird (for controlling of the car gate).
Now, my understanding is that homey can support let’s say 30-40 devices.
IF I have 40 bulbs per bridge (for a total of 3 bridges) with 20 light switches and 1 doorbird, am I correct to say I have a total of 24 devices (plus homey itself, so 25 devices) on 1 homey and that should be sufficient? If I wish to turn on all the lights across the entire house and all 3 floors (ie set a scene of turning everything to 100%) that this will work seamlessly?
Else, the other proposal I am getting is;
- use 120 innr bulbs (since no bridge required and should be “faster”)
- use doorbird
- use the 20 iotty switches
- have 3 homeys to control everything
does anyone have any advice on the above 2 scenarios? I am leaning more towards scenario 1 at the moment and would appreciate the advice!
