So, general question because I do not understand this whole zigbee/zwave communicating thing.
I bought a zigbee switch with three buttons, “powered by tuya” from aliexpress. I am able to connect the switch with homey (so when something is “zigbee”, it’s always able to connect?), but it shows as “onbekend zigbee apparaat / unknown zigbee device”. So, how does this work?
I am able to connect, but homey doesn’t know what to do? Does this mean it doesn’t get any input from it when I press a button, or does it still speak another language, or does it receive something like a code when I press but it doesn’t know what to do with it? I just don’t really understand how this works and why something like a switch still needs to have a specific app to be able to communicate with homey.
And of course my last question, if this happens, is there any way you could still use a device? Or is it totally worthless when homey doesn’t have an app for it?
