Seriously going nuts trying to figure out how to make my Airbnb house “user friendly”.
I just bought the Harmony hub and elite remote but let me list out my setup first.
The headache begins with an Intermatic PE653 controller that turns my pool waterfall (which is filter and heater runs anytime it runs). As well as my pool light (that my pool guy replaced with LED and now it’s stuck on red). The PE953 remote lights up but the screen is shot so was hoping to not replace it by incorporating it into an all in one solution.
Intermatic won’t give me the 3.9 firmware version that apparently makes it connect with home automation controllers.
The outdoor landscape lights are on a timer not connected to it. Hoping an outdoor z-wave plug can tie it into scenes.
Inside, I have a Denon AVR-1913 receiver with 2 indoor and outdoor speaker zones. Needs Spotify added to firmware.
TV (not smart) has a Bose sound bar and it’s own remote.
AT&T U-verse is the cable, home phone, and internet. (Rip off)
Not sure why but I have two Sonos bridges I’m assuming for the AirPlay. Not sure if those are even needed.
Home alarm, door locks, doorbell and outside cameras, and thermostat are all Vivint. The panel will allow me to add any Z-wave switches and hopefully outlets which I’m waiting to buy because I don’t know which setup will cause less confusion. But switches and outlets are on my shopping list.
Garage has MyQ but I can even have Vivint replace that.
Is this new harmony remote going to be of any help to me in getting everything linked up? I urgently need somebody who says “buy this and this, click on this, copy and paste this and that, and have your installer do all of this”.
I’ve been told control4 is ideal for my situation but I really don’t want the expense of starting all over. Anybody got any solutions that I could hire you for? Please?!
