Hey Guys, 

 

Im just about to spend up large and put some Zigbee light switches in our house as we are rewiring it.

 

I was going to put in Xaiomi switches but I've just come across the HPM Arteor with Netatmo switches and I as wondering if anyone knows if they work with Home assistant and/or Conbee?

 

Is anyone using them?

Interesting. First I have seen of these. The brochure says they work with the main voice assistants.

I guess it "should" work. But there may be only one to find out. 😃

 

Have you tried the Home Assistant forums?

 

There are fair few Conbee users on there.

 

Are you trying to automate dumb bulbs or do you want to use these with Hue bulbs or similar?

Yeah its the first time i've seen these as well, only stumbled on to them when spec'ing out my Xaiomi switch order. Would much prefer those cause I know they will be compliant.

 

Im just trying to automate dumb bulbs, and ideally not use their gateway and use conbee instead.

 

It seems like they are so new there isn't much info on them, but I have posted on the HA forums as well.

Looks interesting. I found a starter kit on Aussie Mitre10. Might be as cheap to go something like Aeotec..




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Thanks Guys, this stuff sounds pricey, so I might take the gamble and get 2 switches and look to connected that directly to conbee - then worst case add a gateway after.

 

In saying that, I have a conbee dongle but zero experience using it as the house is still being built so I have no idea whats involved.

Have you seen them for sale in NZ? 

 

I asked our electrician about 6 weeks ago but he said they weren't yet available on the wholesale page.

Hey Guys,

 

Just to update, apparently they are available from my electricians wholesaler - the cost of the starter kit is $600.

 

I've asked for pricing on just a couple of light switches and ill let you know what I find out.

It depend of switch, thoses with battery don't works with conbee, but the wired yes, take a look here > https://github.com/dresden-elektronik/deconz-rest-plugin/issues/883

 

But you need the gateway to update the switch, even you don't use it later.

With deconz/conbee yes, but I haven't see the Legrand gateway on Home assistant, there is API but no integration yet.

 

But It can work with iftt from my memory.

So you have to have a gateway with the Arteor switches?

Are you looking to put them in as well?

Yeah I've been waiting for them to come available for a few months, was planning on starting with one lightswitch as a trial and expanding from there. 

 

Best info I have found is here

Edit: Apparently there will be a cheaper Basic kit including the Gateway

Yep, there is a cheaper kit, with just the getaway (Gateway + plug) and a special switch on batterie, it's the one I took.

 

But "cheaper", ... , Legrand is realy expensive.
