We did this in our last place, everything was automated from the heating to lights and security. I do not think I touched a light switch in 8 months. All of the tech, except for the thermostat was hidden away too - I went with the Nest system deliberately not using a single solution in case it is compromised. I then linked the systems using a variety of solutions. There is method in the madness, it is best practice as a defence in depth approach for cyber security - I would encourage people to look at how they set up the kit and networks so as not to expose themselves and their network externally. Once an attacker gets a foot in to your network it can be easy to hop from one device to another.
