Hello,

I am soon moving permanently to Japan, new life and new apartment (rent). I have sold all my smart stuff (mainly Tp-link Kasa and Philips Hue.

I am a Google person therefore, I'll certainly get at least a couple of nest mini. In the new apartment, I would like to have reliable smart lights working together with smart switches (both wired and wireless) so that my wife doesn't kill me ^_^ Also, I would like to use motion sensors in some areas as well as controlling my air conditioners (for this one I was thinking to use switch bot).

Would you have any suggestion? I am failing to find a brand or combination of brands that can cover all of this reliably except for Philips Hue. As I think their gadgets are really too expensive I would be happy to switch to something else. Unfortunately, not everything is available in Japan so I need to think about this point too.

Thank you very much for your time.
Stay safe

What did you do? Did you got any recommendations? I'm also building my house and I was looking for recommendations to start from zero.

Hello :)
I'm hoping to get some answers. At the moment I'm thinking of using Phillips hue even if I would have preferred finding a cheaper alternative.

Hi There! I will use also Hue for some of the lights but also smart switches. I already made a list of possible options:
