I’m new here, and new to the Zigbee world. It all started a few weeks ago, since I have LED strips under my stairs. I now have them turning on and off automatically with 220V PIR sensors, but one of them broke down and I started looking at better solutions.
So here I am, reading into Zigbee.
From what I understand, Zigbee is a general protocoll, but (all) manufacturers of zigbee products apply their own ‘sauce’ over it, so that basicly nothing is compatible. This is all solved by applying Zigbe2mqtt, right?
- What apps can u use to controll all sensors? Is it any app (like for instance Smart Life) or it is a specific one?
- Somewhere I read that connecting the sensors to Zigbee2mqtt is not that difficult, but getting the connection up and running over longer periods is more difficult. I suppose that the compatibility list does not have any problems whatsoever?
- I have a 3 story (+ basement) house. I think I’ll need to mesh the network. All power supplied zigbee devices act as a mesh instance as well and I can add 25 devices to every mesh unit?
