Does anyone have a wiser system in their house. We're having it in our new build and have a few of the light switches attached to it at this point. Any suggestions on what else to integrate would be appreciated. Do you need a hue bridge as well to control Phillips hue lights, or can the wiser system do this without it? Sorry for the noob question... Thanks.

I personally have the Wiser in my home. I installed it after getting getting it from Home Depot. I have used it for about 3 months, I would say the biggest help is having my major appliances on it. it has been a huge help as far as learning the product and being able to work out the kinks. now granted it was a Home Depot special and isn't very integrated but as fast as energy monitoring it works well in my case.

I've been using the Drayton Wiser system for about a month with a combi boiler and iTRVs on some radiators.
I don't use the Wiser plugs because they are expensive if you dont need them to extend the range of the Wiser Zigbee mesh - I instead use TP-Link Tapo wifi smart plugs which are about a third of the price. I can control both the heating and smart plugs through the Alexa app so it doesn't particularly matter that everything cant be controlled by the wiser app.
If you are planning on using the Wiser iTRVs be aware of the inaccuracy in temperature measurement which for me is up to 4C when the radator is hot. If you have a Wiser thermostat in the same room as the radiators with iTRVs then the Wiser system takes the temperature measurements from the thermostats rather than the iTRVs which overcomes the problem, but the thermostats are quite expensive. Some people are working round the iTRV temperature error by applying offsets. I'm just using iTRVs with separate thermostats in key rooms and old mechanical TRVs in other rooms.
I'm not using using smart bulbs, but do use smart plugs to control some lamps so they can be automatically turned on/off during holidays etc. As far as I know the Philips hue lights are not compatible with the Wiser Hub, so you will probably need a separate Philips hub.
I like the fact that the Wiser system will continue to work even if the wifi or internet goes down as the schedules are stored locally rather than in the cloud. My house is old and too poorly insulated to benefit from the ECO mode, but I find the Comfort mode works reasonably well in applying weather compensation once it has learned the characteristics of your house.

I have Wiser by SE system in Finland and it is created by Tuya. I could add any WiFi Tuya devices without extra hub.If you have exemple Nedis WiFi device and want to use it in Wiser. Put your Wiser to find IP Camera and then it could find WiFi devices.
I also add Lidl Tuya Hub to add 3rd party ZigBee devices to Wiser. I have Lidl devices and Hue lights in Lidl Hub.
My system contain now 70 devices.

I have a wiser system a home for one year, I'm using 12 room stats, 12 heating actuators, 6 dimmablelights and 5 shutters. This runs correctly
In addition I use also Home assistant with the Drayton Wiser Integration that can also manage all these devices, that provides many comfort.
