I've got Sonos for my WHA system and Elan g! for my HA system. They are not connected. I'm fine with that.
Most everybody in the house wants to use the Sonos since most everybody likes to listen to music.
The A in HA stands for AUTOMATION. Since most of what the Elan g! system does is automated there isn't much of interest to most of the family.
The HA system controls the lights but folks can push the switches on the wall. The HA system controls the HVAC systems but the folks can adjust the thermostats on the wall. The HA system controls the irrigation - well nothing really to interact with there. The HA system controls the security but there are hard keypads at the doors for coming and going.
So that fact that there is one app for the WHA system and another of the HA system is no big deal since most of the family never needs to use the HA app.
