Hoping someone here can help clarify some things for in the home automation space.
I want to create my own smart home hub and from my research i think Zigbee is the most appropriate communication between my devices and hub mainly because they're cheaper than z-wave.
My question is how do i use Zigbee with the raspberry pi?
i was looking at the Xbee module https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/products/1225774/
Does this module support zigbee and if so can it be connected directly to the raspi?
I was also looking at the nrf24l01 module and noticed they operate on the same frequeny (2.4GHz) does this mean it can also communicate with Zigbee devices?
Any help is appreciated as i am very new to this.
Thanks in advance
