I plan to buy some zigbee devices (for a start some IKEA TRÅDFRI), but would probably buy more :-).
I found a CC2652P as ebay (CC2652P data sheet, product information and support | TI.com), the seller claims it is openHAB compatible, but I don’t see this coordinator in the compatibility list. I also saw that Chris had done some updates to the Zigbee binding recently. Thus I am in doubt what coordinator to go for.
I have been using Z-Wave for a couple of years, but Zigbee is new to me :-).
Can I expect the coordinator to work with the Zigbee binding?
or is it the zigbee2mqtt binding that supports it?
I would like to go for the Zigbee Binding, as I has been used the Z-Wave Binding from Chris for years (and it was always stable as a rock).
If this coordinator is not supported, then please sugegst something that could be bought inside EU for reasonable money (preferably better than the CC2531
I have been reading recent threads, and as far as I see the coordinator is not supported.
Oh, Danish, I belive Denmark is where the -sen ending is coming from.
I suppose we got that when Denmark and Norway was one kingdom.
There is also the itead zigbee 3.0 usb dongle.
It has a newer ember chip. But it only was made 1000 of them as a initial production run. When and if Itead get around to produce more I dont know.
I have seen them on ebay and the chinese stores.
There certainly is a market for uptodate ember-based USB coordinators.
What about the iTead (Sonoff) stick ? Yeah I see it’s out of stock but maybe you get it somewhere. It’s ZB3, Ember based and cheaper, too @mr_eskildsen chris once said he favorizes Ember chipset controllers.
Thanks for the information. I believe the POPP ZB-STICK is Ember chipset. At least that is ordered and expected to arrive in a couple of days. I will go and buy some bulbs, probably IKEA Trådfri, and then see how it works
I would certainly not recommend the 2531 as it is no longer supported by the manufacturer. It is recommended to use an Ember (Silabs) coordinator as these are generally the best available, and have the best support in the binding (ie most testing by community and commercial users and users).
