Best HT Automation Platform

Good Sunday afternoon. I have been searching in the forums for Automation and there seems to be a lot of opinions on what is better. I am looking at Insteon and Lutron Caseta systems and was wondering if those are the better ones for that price range? I am wanting to be able to use voice commands through Alexa and just have everything (lights, Equipment) turn on and off with just voice commands and or Harmony remote.

Thanks

I have been very happy with my Insteon and Harmony Elite/Hub. Just added an Echo Dot so can't comment yet other than to say I think it will work well but Alexa and I need to work on our naming conventions so the right things come on at the right time LOL

Is Insteon the better platform or are they both the same?
