Posted - 03/05/2020 : 09:08:38 AM While researching I stumbled upon the Z-Wave serial API specification, which some of the Z-Wave usb sticks seem to comply with. As far as I understand, when plugged into a machine (for example a Linux system) simple binary frames can be read written onto a virtual usb device file.
Is there something similar for ZigBee?
My goal is to build a very simple application which just logs some temperature values but I don't want to use one of the (for my purpose overengineered home automation systems. In my naive mind I just use an existing library or write it myself to access the basic functionality for discovery and data aggregation. But I don't want to be bound to one usb stick of one company. If I am correct, then the ConBee II for example, requires its own library and some deamon to be executed in order to work.
I am asking especially for the unified ZigBee interface since I seem to find more devices supporting ZigBee than Z-Wave.
