Homey by Athom
The next protocol, which is Zigbee's turn, distinguishes itself just like Z-Wave through 2-way communication and the ability to form a network. Zigbee is best known for the Philips HUE and Ikea Trådfri lamps. We are going to test some different devices again.
Ikea makes home automation products for a nice amount of money. For example, they already have different lights and plugs from € 10. We test the RGBW LED lamp. Good to know is that this lamp can be connected directly to the Homey, but that the Ikea Gateway can also be used. We link it directly because you will not get any delays.
Adding is again by going to your devices and looking up the Ikea lamp. Then I turn the lamp on and off to start adding.
INNR mainly makes lighting and is a cheap alternative to Philips Hue lighting. For example, the lamp (E27 - RB175W) which we are going to test can be purchased for € 22.95. You can link these products directly to the Homey. So you do not need an INNR Hub.
Adding is done again by installing the APP and selecting the correct device. You can start adding by switching the lamp on and off. I had to repeat this procedure a few times, but it was eventually found.
The devices tested by us were all added without problems. You can see that Homey has this pretty well organized.
