I started off with the HUSBZB-1 and had issues in the beginning losing control of zigbee devices until a restart. I ended up moving my install from a raspberry pi to an old desktop I was not using. Since the move I had also purchased the aeotec z-stick for my zwave devices. After this new setup my issue with zigbee seems to be gone. Support is fairly new as well as you don’t get battery reports or energy readings yet. I do have several contact sensors and smart plugs setup that work pretty well now.
I currently have a HUSBZB-1 and it works fairly well. I have no issues at all the with zwave devices. My zigbee devices however sometimes don’t function properly. I believe that has to do with running it off of a raspberry pi and I’m currently in the process of migrating most of my setup and just having zigbee and zwave on the pi. It seems to be helping a lot so far!
winter: Please share your config/setup. I’m having the hardest time getting a HUSBZB-1 working with an Iris motion sensor. As far as I can tell, the sensor is paired, but it’s not reporting any motion to HA.
I’m also trying to move away from ST after the recent incident.
So I had some initial success getting sensors to pair, and then I was unable to do any more. It seems that the HA recognises that a device is paired, but then fails to get the end points and leaves the device connected in a weird state. Unsure of what exactly is causing the issue.
