I’ve got OH3 (and node red) running on an Raspi 4 and among other devices some innogy-hardware (rollershutter, thermostat, window-sensor) and hue light-bulbs, both with their separate hubs. And Alexa.
Now I’d like to get some more devices like: thermostats, window-sensors, air sensors, motion sensor, light-switches to integrate in the wall (I don’t know the correct english term) and whatever else might make sense.
Before investing and then regretting, I’d like to hear about your experiences, like:
Which hub do you propose? I don’t want to get many hubs. So far, I tend to buy the Conbee 2. If I understand correctly, I can’t exchange the innogy hub with it (or is there a way?) but the hue-hub. More importantly, it looks like I this works with a lot of zigbee-products.
Any particular hardware you can recommend? As for window sensors, I tend to the Aqara MCCGQ11LM. For the rest, I’m not sure. Especially I’d be interested in your thoughts about thermostats and “power/light-switches to integrate into wall”. For the later, shelly seems to be good, but it’s only wlan and I’d prefer zigbee, if possible.
