Forgive me if this is a no-brainer. I bought a couple of these Aqara Zigbee Door/Window sensors thinking that they were vanilla zigbee devices and they’d hook up directly to my HUSBZB-1 zigbee/z-wave device. And yes, I know in the item description on the Amazon listing it says “HUB Required”, but a lot of devices do, and they connect to HA without extra hardware. Do I really need to get another hub to make this work? I can’t just connect those sensors directly up to HA with some special device handler?
I’m not sure why these are listed on hadevices.com as a preferred choice when a third-party hub is required to make this work. I want 1 hub to control them all, but I guess that’s too much to ask.
