Samsung SmartThings Hub
This Samsung system unites a wide variety of smart devices from different brands including smart thermostats, Wi-Fi router, lightbulbs, and security devices. Users with the smart system get a SmartThings Hub wall mount and can get full access to the smart devices connected to the hub through the SmartThings IOS or Android app.
Samsung’s SmartThings Hub has been growing its own smart-device offerings for the past few years. In fact, the Hub’s product lineup recently grew with the addition of the SmartThing Wi-Fi plug, SmartThings Light Bulb, and a SmartThings Cam.
Through the SmartThings Hub, you can also set compatible smart devices to do various actions like turning on or off when you walk in or out of a room. While you can give voice commands to the SmartThings wall hub or app, you can also integrate and Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to the system.

Same as Samsung supported devices
Like the Echo Dot, the Google Home isn’t quite a hub, but it lets you control your smart home devices using your voice. It’s compatible with a wide variety of smart lights, plugs, appliances, and home security products. We found that the Google Home Assistant is a little bit better at recognizing voice commands than Alexa, and we liked the option for using less specific follow-up questions, like asking, “When does it open?” after asking where the nearest bakery is. Like the Echo, you can use IFTTT to create your own custom smart device scenarios to more fully automate your home.

It offers three smart speakers, the Amazon Echo (£90), Amazon Echo Dot (£50) and Amazon Echo Plus (£140). This audio functionality is combined with Amazon’s Alexa voice-enabled smart assistant, and these devices are a great introduction into the world of home automation.
As well as playing music, these devices can answer questions and control other smart devices such as light bulbs or locks.

Amazon compatible with Smart Heating, Lighting and Audio
Echo acts as a hub for the other devices in your home automation system. These include Hue, Sonos, Nest and Belkin, among others. They now interface conveniently and you can group activities together.
Once set up, on a cold morning you can be woken up by Dot, which could have previously heated your house via Nest, switched on all the lights downstairs and Radio 4 could be playing softly as you descend the staircase.
It can then switch the coffee percolator on via a Belkin WeMo plug. What’s more, if you hear a suspicious noise downstairs, you can turn on the lights and play loud music to scare any potential intruder away. And thanks to the Nest camera, you could have a video record of the event.
