I am stuck on which ZigBee implementation is best for my home automation setup. There are several options, ZigBee, ZHA, ZigBee2MQTT, and Deconz, all of which have a very different hardware requirements. I can’t simply purchase a module and try each out until I find a component that works best for my home.
Ideally, I want Local Push for state updates. Not so much for the light bulbs my Hue hub currently manages, but for possible light switches and scene controllers and the like where I want to emulate instant on/off. I know most have there designated supported hardware, so I would likely need an option that allows me to add supported devices on the fly. I am lead to believe that only ZigBee2MQTT and Deconz support this functionality. Additionally, the 900Mhz spectrum is out of the question. Unfortunately it causes more problems in general as my internet is provided on that same band. I know this eliminates very popular alternatives such as Z-wave.
Has anyone implemented something like this with one of the options (or any other alternative option) to achieve this?
