ZHA vs deConz add-on

Hi. I run HA in RPi3 with a deCONZ Conbee II zigbee dongle and with deCONZ add-on running the Phoscon s/w which works fine.

Today I discovered that there is also a Zigbee Home Automation (ZHA) integration available.

What are the differences and pros ans cons of using ZHA over the deconz add-on? Should I consider switching?

I assume that I cannot, or shouldn’t, use the two at the same time. Is that true?

There are several topics on this for example this one

You can not use two solutions at the same time unless buy two adapters, but you are made a safe purchase with ConBee/RaspBee hardware for now as soon also Zigbee2MQTT will support it too. that means you will be able to use ConBee/RaspBee hardware with ZHA, deConz, and Zigbee2MQTT to try them all out with the same hardware.
