Hello, I was looking for a efficient Home Automation Hub for my home. I was flooded with so many options to choose from and that is when I stumbled across this new Home Automation Hub called B.One. It has its own eco system of products.
It can control motion sensors, security cameras, smoke detectors and also devices like old TV's & music systems via a simple application or by voice commands.
This surely did catch my attention. Could someone give feedback regarding this product?
Thank You.

It doesn't actually exist, not as something you can read an actual user review about or go to a Best Buy to order. So far, it's just an idea someone has for a future product.

Thanks for the reply, This product, B.One does seem worth the wait. Doesn't it? I'm new to Home Automation.

It may be worth the wait. Usually that means that you know when it'll be ready and you're willing to wait. In this case not only do you not know, but the product may never be brought to market. Still want to wait?

I know a product with security cameras and smoke detectors. It's Vigek smart smoke alarm. You can get alerts and real-time view from your phone. You can search for it.

I've used Vigeks detectors and they're not that great imo. Didn't work as they were supposed to.

That's somewhat vague. Can you be more specific?

I have been using Vera (Google Vera home automation controller) for 8 years now. I comes with a lot of headaches until you get it all set up. They stopped supporting my version after 5 years but it since I don't need to add more devices I don't need to touch it. It is a small device that looks like a wireless router. But it is fairly reasonably priced give the expensive PC versions. I have zwave light switches, outlet plugs, energy monitor, smoke alarm, IR blaster for old VCR & DVD...and it works with Alexa.
If I decide to enhance my home will I go with Vera again? I don't know, I will research what else is out there, but Vera will have an advantage with my decision.
