I was looking for a temperature monitoring solution, so I can put cheap sensors in a few places. I came across Aquara, which looks interesting, but there's not really any introductory material I can find.
- I guess you control it all and get information like temperatures with some kind of an app?
- It mentions the Zigbee protocol - which Wikipedia says is 10 - 100m line of sight comms. Does this work ok through walls? Does it interfere with WiFi or anything else?
- Any experience with the system?
I mostly want an easy way to check temperatures. I'm a bit wary about things sourced on ebay / Ali Express, the Broadlink stuff I use for heat pump control has the worst app with the most bugs I've ever seen.
Putting in a hub and such seems like overkill for checking temps, but it doesn't look all that expensive.
