A while ago I got a recommendation to look into a Raspbee (from dresden elektronik) as Zigbee gateway. That looked like fun, therefore I ordered one of the devices. The first step is the installation of the Pi itself and then the software for the Raspbee.
For various reasons I decided to use a dedicated Pi for this, and don't install this on the openHAB Pi already running here:
- The Raspbee needs software from a closed repository
- During installation and configuration I don't have to reboot my openHAB system all the time
- The headless install runs a webserver, this conflicts with the redirect I have on port 80 on the openHAB system
- I still have a couple Raspberry Pi B+ here, which I don't need for other projects
