We will be starting to build our new home soon.
I would like to make it smart ready, and possible make use of openhab.
I would like to control lighting initially, the light should still have a switch in every room which should be able to work with or without the automation system working, and also should still be able to be switched on when the actual switch is switched of.
I was looking at something like insteon, but would really like to wire the lighting setup, and insteon is not supported in South Africa.
Any ideas on how I should approach this, should all the electrical go to 1 central place and control panels put where the light switched should have been.
Will openHab connect to some kind of a hub which will in turn control the lights?
Any advice or ideas would be appreciated!
