Do We Really Need A Smart Home Hub?
If you are planning to start setting up your DIY smart home, then the first decision that you will have to make is whether you will need a smart home hub or not. Though in today’s world, most of the devices do not require a smart home hub, these hubs come with their own advantages. The smart home hubs provide a platform for connected devices to communicate and work together.
These hubs feature antennas for smart home protocols like Z-Wave, Thread and Zigbee.
If you are going to have multiple devices connected to the network, then it is better to have a smart home hub to manage all these devices from one place. It makes it easier for multiple users to interact with the devices. This centralization can also unite your devices if they come from multiple brands with varying connectivity options.
Along with bringing all devices to be managed in one single place, it acts as a communication hub for all the smart home devices to interact with each other. With the smart home hub’s mobile apps, you will see a dashboard of all the connected devices on the network. If you live in a larger space, a smart home hub will give your devices a ‘home base’ of sorts. On the other hand, if you live in a smaller space and have fewer devices, a smart home hub might not be a worthwhile investment. The same goes for if you are not interested in setting up smart home routines and don’t mind using multiple apps. At the end of the day, it all boils down to what you want to do with your devices and how you want to build your network of smart home devices.
