For starters I am a total newbie, but would be happy if you could give me some advice on following hw setup.
Planning on getting few of these sensors (one for each room in the house): Aqara Temperature and Humidity Sensor, WSDCGQ11LM
Alternative is to use ruuvitags and give up on zigbee altogether. They use Bluetooth for communication.
Not too keen on getting xiaomi router/hub since of proprietary software and information leakage.
Have a Android TV box (amlogic s912) and I would like to use it as a router since it’s on 24/7 and wifey would not be happy with yet another box in the house.
Any experience on this kind of a setup?
Will it work? What else do I need? I quess at least USB stick from @h4nc
