EDIT: read post 3. For context, one reason for posting this thread is because I am not happy with my Z-wave lighting setup.
I have seen how Control4 does their lighting and really like the concept. It seems to make a lot of sense to run all high voltage romex to a central location and then run low voltage wires from there to your smart switches. that way the switches can be programmed to do anything rather than being tied to a specific light.
This type of setup obviously has to be done during the construction of the house but seems like a more professional way to do smart lighting than relying on a Z-wave wireless controller.
I am not a fan of Control4 in that it doesn’t allow for DIY an often looks down upon it (hence why I have an OpenHAB setup). Do any of you know alternatives to the Control4 lighting system that integrate with OpenHAB and operate on the same concept of centralized high voltage romex?
Thanks in advance.
