For the DIY option, there are tons of cheap wired sensors, but they require knowledge of circuitry and programming to use at home. The Sensor Hub bridges the DIY gap and allows you to integrate wired sensors by just plugging them in. A single hub can support six sensors and three relays at the same time.
