The deCONZ REST plugin provides a REST-API to access Zigbee 3.0 (Z30), Zigbee Home Automation (ZHA) and Zigbee Light Link (ZLL) lights, switches and sensors from Xiaomi Aqara, IKEA TRÅDFRI, Philips Hue, innr, Samsung and many more vendors.

A list of supported Zigbee devices can be found on the Supported Devices page.

To communicate with Zigbee devices the RaspBee / RaspBee II Zigbee shield for Raspberry Pi, or a ConBee / ConBee II / ConBee III USB dongle is required.
