I need a tip for the best zigbee solution that works with most of the devices. Yes I know there a lot of topics in this forum about zigbee, but recently I burned money for some osram devices that won’t work properly and I try to be sure that does not happen again.
So I use openhab since a few years, with mqtt, sonoff, shelly, homematic. A few weeks ago I installed a hue bridge and an osram strip light. That all works fine.
But then I thought I can add some of the very cheap osram switches, but the hue bridge doesn’t work with them. I searched the net for alternatives and found the ikea switches, very cheap and nice design. But I could not find information if that work with my hue bridge.
Basically I prefer solutions with standards, not with proprietary stuff. And I thought zigbee is a standard, obviously it is not.
What is the best solution for zigbee that works with most of the zigbee devices. I have read about the usb sticks, but my problem is, my openhab server in not located in the center of my house. Because of that I always try to find network gateways like the hue bridge or the homematic ccu.
Has anyone a tip for me, thank you.
