I recently bought a Hubitat Hub and beginning to test it out. I am trying to discover the truth about many of the claims that running WebCore on this hub is loaded with problems. I have a sense of rivalry between WebCore and Hubitat, is that true? And if so, is it causing problems?
I tested the latest version of WebCore and it seems to be working okay. However my test pistons are simple. “Contact sensor opens, switch turns on”. The same routine can easily be done using RuleMachine but don’t understand how to integrate the two apps without causing undue confusion. Many of my pistons make use of complex of variables which are shared with other pistons, something RuleMachine seems lacking in.
So, is using WebCore on the Hubitat a long term solution? Or is RuleMachine the way to go? I know Hubitat won’t support anyone running WebCore so if users run into problems their on their own.
I am very happy with WebCore on the SmartThings platform but I’m really attracted to local processing aspect of Hubitat.
What are your thoughts?
