Congrats Mike, it is a beautiful unit for sure and hope it will last you guys for many years.
I am really into learning home smart automation and hoping to implement some at an apartment I may be buying in the DR later this year. Smart locks, smart lighting, door bells, etc etc.
Read into the newer better communication called thread....so interesting and much better than Bluetooth.LOL Me too after the last lemon we purchased......
We are about as automated as I want (I think). All the lights are smart bulbs (Hue) and can be controlled via Alexa or Phone app. Thermostat, Nest Protect CO/smoke detector, outdoor security cameras, indoor security cameras, HDTV's and AV Receivers, Air Conditioner. Everything is connected in some way including the cars for updates to Apple CarPlay etc.
Have locks that are keypad but not network connected. I can enter temporary unlock codes for dog sitters etc and then delete them when the job is over. At some point I may upgrade but I will wait for better encryption and overall technology of those to mature a bit more before jumping in on them.
Obviously we still have work to do on the kitchen walls but we just finished installing this range today. Zline dual fuel gas and electric convection oven in cobalt blue. Its going to be so much nicer than what I have been using.
Looks great @ibglowin! We ended up replacing our electric cooktop with a new gas slide-in oven/range and new ducted exhaust. Actually having the smells and heat go outside is a miracle, much less the great control of cooking with gas. The first is the "before" and the second is the "after."

The only problem I see is that you no longer have an excuse for cooking ANYTHING to less than perfection. Glad your replacement is meeting your expectations and LG now stands for Long Gone!
