USB dongle for ZigBee 3.0

@David_Dassonneville, I am running raspbee ii for my zigbee network and so far all ok. But be aware that won’t run with the openhab zigbee binding, it is a different „story“

So how is your setup? Which binding or software do you use?

As my main goal was to integrate with homekit, I have migrated my main setup to NRCHKB completely.

To be clear - I assume you mean that the conbee/raspbee doesn’t work with the zigbee binding? This is correct as it is not supported by the ZigBee binding (there’s no real story though :confused:).

Would be great if there was support for zzah (Zigbee 3.0). It is the zigbee2mqtt main promoted usb stick at the moment. I have one that I run zigbee2mqtt on. I will see if I can get an additional stick and test it out with openhab.

I have no idea what this means - sorry.

Thanks - I thought this was running the standard TI firmware so should work with the binding, but I’ve personally not tested it and do not personally use TI chipsets at all so if someone can verify that would be good.

Hi @chris, sure i meant this :slight_smile:

Hey, thanks for the reply. If I understand correctly you’re not using the raspbee with Openhab?
Is there another way to integrate this in openhab, thats ok to use?

Hi @David_Dassonneville,

Yes, there is a binding for deconz as well in Openhab
Works very well too

I did flash it with this firmware but the device shows up as “UNKNOWN” after upgrading to 3.0. Any special tricks?
