Hi, i’m new to HA and really confused by using Zigbee for several sensors and automation tasks, and hope someone could help me to understand it better.
I bought an Sonoff and Xiaomi Temp-Sensor and thought imcould easily integrate them with a cheap CC2351 stick, bad mistake…
So i think i need to learn the principles of all that stuff. I read about several solutions, hubs, routers and brands and now i really don’t know what to buy.
What is needed to habe a good, expandable wireless network for using Zigbee devices?
Of what i read, the Zigbee 3.0 standard should be,preferred to be as much compatible as possible. Which device should be used to start with it? How to extend range of the communication? I have a house with a celler (here my Raspi for HA is located) a ground and a first floor, also a roof floor for storing things. I like to add actors and sensors everywhere for measuring temperature/humidity. Control lights, radiators, window rolls and such. Nothing unusual, nothing new, i think :]
