Hello

I am just starting to looking at HA , I am very confused now , Maybe someone can help me out and point me in right direction. I am looking for something user friendly being i am not that pc orientated. I have BI already with 10 cameras.

What I am looking to achieve.
1 - turn off/on light in house
2 - control thermostats
3 - control might mule gate open
4 - be able to hear and talk with people at door, At least let me talk to them

On a budget like most people i don't want to brake the bank, 1 and 3 are my priorities first. Next Is there something that would control all with one app or one interface?

I looked at nest,google, alexis . i rather not buy incorrect items!

You haven't looked at the big open source HA products? OpenHAB/Home Assistant? Both run on raspberry pis, and both can incorporate bits of what you want.

But they're not a turnkey solution.
