Thank you so much for this little board. It works exactly as advertised - great build quality. I was up and running with my custom Zigbee device within minutes. Glad I bought 2, one is commissioned, while I experiment with the other, then when Im happy with my config, just swap them over.
First of all, many thanks to the seller as he correctly managed communication and more importantly he solved at his own expenses my mis-understanding on the type of cover to buy. I have coupled the Z-Bee Duo with a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W and followed the provided instructions to install all software...it works like a charm! Super happy and worth the money spent!
Innanzitutto grazie mille al venditore che ha gestito correttamente la comunicazione e soprattutto ha risolto a proprie spese (!) un mio malinteso sul tipo di contenitore da acquistare. Ho accoppiato il Z-Bee Duo con un Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W e ho installato il software di gestione come da istruzioni fornite... funziona tutto alla grande! Super contento, lo consiglio!
I bought this stick to replace the weak CC2531, i had some problems at first (my pi3 didnt like it all) but giovanni spend a lot of time trying to help me with my problems, at the end i switched to a pi zero i had, had zero problems with that. Is that why its called a Pi Zero? Anyways, works perfect since that, so i can exlude the stick from being the problem.
Appreciate all the time he has spend answering my questions and he is always responding very fast!
What a simply brilliant design, put it straight onto the GPIO, use ser2net or simply plug it into a USB port.
I have tried all three, they all work great.
ser2net seems very reliable, it has been up for over 24 hours and I have sent a high amount of data through the connection without problems. This makes it very easy to site the device at its most advantageous point, signal wise.
I also tried putting a Pi Zero into the case, it fit just great. It meant that this little thing was acting as the coordinator and MQTT server by simply plugging it into a phone charger anywhere I wish. It basically becomes a very small, tidy and complete open source ZigBee hub with a Pi Zero onboard. I doubt there is a commercial ZIgBee hub out there that can compete with this in all honesty.

Hi Stephen. I'm really happy that you appreciate my project. I wanted to create something new and you described better than me Z-bee features :)
