has anyone tried to integrate other vendor ZigBee products with hue bridge ? The official app doesn’t provide the option. But I don’t understand why a standard ZigBee hub can’t connect to other ZigBee products( not light). I read somewhere that hue uses ZigBee LL whilst others sensors usually use ZigBee HA. Does that mean those are in different frequencies? But the documentation says, ZigBee radio should be utilizing 2.4 GHz channel.
I recently bought orvibo motion sensor, they are cheap and importantly used ZigBee HA and should work with their standard Hub. But I am reluctant to buy their hub as it is not supported in Hass. The intention of using Hass was to create an universal gateway for controlling every devices from one place. So, if I have to use another app , that doesn’t make any sense. That’s why I bought a hue bridge though I don’t have a single hue bulb
So, someone please enlighten me why the different vendors can’t communicate even though they are on same standard protocol e.g ZigBee? Secondly, if there is a barrier, what should be the best way to integrate some motion/door sensors along with Hass so that even though that particular brand don’t have IFTTT, Hass can trigger the other integrated devices in Hass…
Thanks & Regards
