Amazon Echo Plus - ZigBee-Smart Home-Hub

Post by Netsurfer24 » Saturday 23 December 2017 13:30

Hi all!

I would like to know, if the Amazon Echo Plus with its integrated ZigBee-Smart Home-Hub is suitable for being "recognized" (or can be connected) by Domoticz?

Actually I am running Domoticz on a Raspi 3 with RFXCom Transceiver and using Controlicz to control my switches via "Alexa" Echo (Dot) - works like a charm ...! :)

But I would like to expand my system to also being able to use some of the many ZigBee devices.
AFAIK each ZigBee Network needs a ZC (ZigBee coordinator) which originally initiates/ starts the network. So I guess the main question is, if this ZC needs to be "controlled" by Domoticz, or if Domoticz can recognize an existing ZigBee Network?

And what kind of Hardware device will I need, if any?

In the end I would like to show-up all of the (ZigBee) devices in Domoticz and also want to control them via Controlicz/ Echo speech commands.

Many thanks in advance for any helpful answer!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and happy House Automation :) !
