You're going to be naming devices as you set them up.  Avoid special characters % $ : , . # < > / \ { } [ ] @ ` ' "

The forum is good, though the software takes some time to learn its nuances. I start here
https://community.hubitat.com/latest

But work right-to-left if there are 'Unread' or 'New', then scan 'Latest'.

>nuance
Click the number of replies (3rd column from right on desktop) and it'll show links to both first and last post.

>software
It suffers from ajax overload, glitzy features, and mediocre nav ui, but the content is worth the pain.

Like compound interest, attrition is a helluva force.  And it lets company PR departments make technically true bullshit statements.

>How can you tell if the are Hubitat compatible

I usually pick devices that have been mentioned as installed & working in forum threads. My device needs so far have been pretty simplistic.  But I did screw up and buy a keypad that was a new version (v3) thinking that it was the version HE had working.  As mentioned upstream, the devs are adding devices at a blazing pace, so I just put it aside and waited rather than whine for help in the forum.  Looks like they've fixed it.

>everything was half price

IIRC, at one of the early pubcons at the Islington the rate was $1.31/pound.  The euro was at 1/1.

I haven't followed it in detail, but I believe some wifi devices are being converted to local network.  Search on TP-Link.

It's confusing at first, all the various SH 'channels.' I bought a few wall outlets and a couple of switches (z-wave, so I ended up not using them). Getting a table lamp to come on at sunset was how I began the trial-and-error & testing phase.
