I’m considering getting a smart bulb or two to test out with a view to getting more if the experience goes well. I see that the Things Gateway currently supports a few different products via different add-ons:
- MEROSS (or are only plugs supported?)
- Philips Hue (via Zigbee)
- Via Zigbee - Cree, Tradfri, Osram, Sylvania,
- Via Z-Wave - GoControl
From the gateway’s point of view, what are the significant differences between these? Are all functions supported, or only a subset? Some of the above I’ve noted need an adapter for Zigbee or Z-Wave, do the others work directly on WiFi or do they need another adapter/bridge/hub?
