Best Home Automation System 2019

It is very hard to pick one complete system as the best home automation system 2019, home automation fall in to multiple branches, not a single brand or system is too good to be awarded as a best of all among various systems.

One system is good in heating department but lack in lighting department, therefore single system for whole home automation is too difficult to choose.

Connect multiple compatible systems wired or without wired to perform optimally from a single channel as defined as HUB (Centrally control).

In addition to central system, you can install different systems and control separately with their own Hub.

Choosing a system mostly based upon (budget, features, reliability, brand value, compatibility with other devices and customer service).
