Does anyone have a suggestion for solutions beyond 50 device limit?
I exceed 50 caseta dimmers, serena shades, and picos. Something with other protocols would be useful: I have some zigbee (Hue), zwave (door locks) and nest devices (therm and smoke). I started with the SBP, then bought SBP2 to work with Apple Homekit. Since there was no efficient way to move devices to the SBP2 at the time, I kept two systems going initially while testing Homekit (which doesn't do anything for shades yet) and then reached 50 limit on SBP2. With two hubs, things are connected but there are two accounts for the app and only one available at a time.
I know of solutions like Wink (not good enough) and Staples Connect or D-link hub. Are any of those comparable to the SBP and do they have the same arbitrary device limit? I want to work with Homekit even though Siri's performance and mistakes embarrass me in front of wife and kids all the time. It will get better.
I'm not looking for cheap systems. The reason I use Lutron Caseta and Serena is because I think they work well and look good. I tried buying other Lutron items that normally only dealers and integrators sell but it is just too painful to get anything. There is a user in the forum called TheVince. I share a similar opinions to some of his posts. I don't want a dealer setting anything up for me. Not because of the cost but because of the principle. I think the 50 device limit is just arbitrary to keep their other dealer only markets (which will be threatened anyway they handle it). i'd be willing to pay a fee to unlock the 50 device limit or buy additional hardware to expand so multiple accounts are not needed. Or get a third party solution to work with the Lutron devices, hence the reason for posting this in third party section.
