Yeah, I’m one of those suckers that bought a Revolv! To Google/Nest’s credit, the Revolv has continued to work even though new features weren’t being added or fixes being released. I had a bit of free time this weekend, and I finally had all of the pieces I needed, so I unplugged my Revolv and set up openHAB on a Raspberry Pi 2. Once I sat down to make the conversion I had pretty much everything switched over within half a day, although since openHAB is so much more configurable than Revolv I’ve been spending a lot of time over the past few days tweaking everything to my liking. The last piece that I neeed was the Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5 which I received last month. I’m also using a 2012 Insteon Hub that I kept from before I got the Revolv to connect my Insteon devices.
Right now, I’ve got 12 Insteon devices, 6 Z-Wave devices, a Nest Thermostat and two Nest Protects hooked up. Going forward I’m probably going to be sticking with Z-Wave devices, except that I need to replace a few standard smoke alarms with Protects. I’ve also got a few DIY projects in mind that’ll get hooked into openHAB.
