I'm ready to upgrade and considering Home Assistant or Hubitat and looking for pros and cons of those two or suggestions for alternatives.

Thanks in advance for advice.

I am an Indigo fan boy: indigodomo.com

It’s very expandable, can run custom python scripts, has tons of 3rd party developers, and a thriving friendly forum.
