Smart(?) Home

I have been testing "smart home" devices for several years. I have purchased, tested...then gifted...several camera systems, etc., as I  determined what works best for me.

Current Setup, excluding computers, printer, and a few other things:

-  Gateway device from my  broadband provider.
  - eero mesh WiFi system
    - 1 Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus
    - 1 Ring Chime Pro
    - 1 Kasa Smart Bulb, Dimmable Color Changing  (Front  Door)
    - 1 Govee 32.8ft Neon Rope Light (Front Entrance)
    -  2 Ring Indoor Cameras
    - 1 Ring A19 Smart LED Bulb  (Back Yard Patio)
    - 1 Ring PAR38 Smart LED Bulb  (Carport)   
    - 4  Ring Outdoor Cameras, Stick Up Camera, Battery (Back Yard, Carport, Garden, North Yard)
    - 1 Echo Show (Office)
    - 1 Echo Dot (Master Bedroom)
    - 3 Toshiba 32LF221U21 31.5-inch Smart HD 720p TV - Fire TV, Released 2020 (Gym, Workshop, Guest Bedroom)
    - 1 Fire TV Cube (Living Room)
    - 1 Fire TV Stick (Den)
    - 1 Fire TV Gaming Edition (Office)
    - 3 Kasa HS100  WiFi Smart Plugs
    - 2 Kasa KP400 Outdoor Smart Plug
    - 3 Kasa KP303 Smart Plug Power Strip
    - 2 iDOO WiFi 12 Pods Hydroponic Growing System
    -  1 Honeywell  Smart Thermostat

So, I have some experience with the frustrations that all of this can cause. Currently, I prefer the Amazon Alexa and Ring apps & products.
