As far as I can see all your Q’s are possible with Homey.
It would be nice to be able also to disable motion detection when the robot vacuum is operating.
Possible by adding a condition to the motion detector flow(s): “robot vacuum is not vacuuming”
local execution; I am too tired of the Smartthings lags and inability to turn on light without internet
As long as your devices don’t need internet (several wifi devices do) you’re running things local only.
It’s possible for some wifi devices to run locally only, as Adrian explains below.
Google Home support, I still want to operate my home via voice when the internet is good
I need not only lights but also Vacuum, AC, Curtain, and Lock support
Afaik all this is possible. Even if a device is not directly connected to GHome, you can still command it via Homey, if internet is up!.
TCP\UDP support. I want to run Nanoleaf and Roborock.
Not sure what you mean, but there are apps available for both devices/brands
Zigbee 3 and BTLE for future devices
Yup. Zigbee can handle up to approx 35 devices.
Some use an additional RPI+deCONZ to use (waaaaay) more zigbee devices i.c.w. the Deconz app.
ability to create custom device handlers
Sorry, I’ve got no clue what that is.
the ability to connect different types of devices in the automation, eg. Zigbee cube rotation to WiFi light brightness.
Yup, if it’s paired with Homey, almost anything can command anything. But you were not gonna use Wifi lights, right?
You can stream stuff to it. But internet = needed
The app Homeykit connects Homey to Siri.
Is there only JS SDK, I’d like to have a compiler to spot my mistakes.
Can’t help you with that.
I don’t quite understand what ‘being a developer’ has to do with your wishes. One can build their own apps, and even publish them.
Using the app Homeyscript provides for a way to ‘program’ your Homey without using the GUI flow editor much.
But Homey’s power (to me) = no need to be a developer/ techie/nerd/a.s.o. Although it helps to have some level of technical knowledge
For me Homey is the only hub used.
Using a non-pro myself, it can run up to 35 apps (but some reported using even more apps). BUT I’d love to be able to run more apps. Not like I need more to run my home, but I’d like to experiment a lot.
Apps & Memory overview:
Is Homey expensive? Depends on how you look at things.
Your phone is like €800,- probably? So…
I started with a 2nd hand model. A non-pro can be bought starting at approx. €180,-
A pro at approx. €300,-
On the other hand, a new Home Assistant setup with a RPi 4b 4GB, a deCONZ stick, a z-wave stick and external SSD sets you back around € 200 € 250
