OK, unexpectedly had to move to a new house, and it has zero automation, but (mostly) LED lights everywhere in non-recessed fixtures (i.e. bulb is not replaceable). Nicely placed switches, lots of 3-ways. Zero dimmers.
Eventually I will add stuff, probably first cameras, then likely security (I'm also debating whether to change to impact windows, and I do not want to start down the window contact path until I decide). Eventually some automation.
But lack of dimmers is making me nuts.
So without (hopefully) opening the whole debate about which automation hub (or non-hub, or cloud, or etc) ....
What dimmers will give me the most reliable, long term service remaining compatible with most (at least many) home automation systems?
Some quick reading leads me to Caseta. RA2 looks expensive and troublesome as a DIY with hoops to jump through.
UPB, which I've used before and like a lot, seems stagnant; should one invest in a lot of them now?
I absolutely want local control (i.e. a wall switch one can use gracefully without needing a phone or voice). Ultimately integration, maybe with Google, a bridge, etc. But right now I want a really good dimmer, that works well with LED's, that preserves a lot of my options later.
