I’ve been strolling the community to find answers, but I’m lost now. Basically these are the questions I face:
- does Homey create 1 Zigbee mesh if you use a bridge for Hue and 1 for Ikea?
- or should I use another app to get these 2 brands together in 1 Zigbee mesh (i.e. without any bridges, directly to Homey)?
- if I can use 1 bridge (Hue it is in this case) and I can add Ikea to it, how does that work? How can I add an Ikea lamp or remote to the Hue app?
The reason I ask is that we now have a bed room at the attic with only 1 connection for a lamp and therefore would like to use Hue or Ikea, or both, to get a comfy atmosphere before going to bed. I also have a Google Nest in place and 2 Neo Coolcam smart plugs (can be replaced). On starting the Hue devices I noticed that Homey has trouble connecting to these, due to lack of devices half way (1st floor). I do have the intention to add 1 or 2 additional devices on the 1st floor, but would like to know whether it should be Hue or could be Ikea as well (less dependencies).
Who has the right answers, or sources I should review for this, cause I’m lost…
