I am running the RPi 4 with OpenHab.
My goal is a smart home setup without any cloud or internet connection.
Therefore I am looking for a good supported ZigBee Gateway for openhab.
I already own the ConBee II USB and a preflashed CC2531 will also arrive soon.
As far as I understand the ConBee I have to use the software deConz and the openhab Deconz binding. Pairing devices will be done in deconz and then I can discover Lights and devices with openhab. Correct?
If I use the CC2531 version I can use the zigbee binding in openhab. Does this mean the deconz “software layer” becomes obsolete? Is this way superior to the conbee version?
As far as I understand ZigBee bindings, it involves regular development to make devices compatible. For conbee I could find a github repo and a compatibility list.
How is this managed in the OpenHab Zigbee binding? I used google but couldn’t find something which helped me.
