I have had the Homey Bridge for a while now. It is connected to my Philips Hue lights via the Hue Bridge, IKEA Trådfri lights and a Trådfri socket directly to Homey via Zigbee and an Aqara Smart Plug directly via Zigbee. I also connected Homey to three Nest Home minis.
In addition to this, I have a Philips Hue motion sensor that I haven’t managed to connect with Homey Bridge. As far as I understand it isn’t supported, although it says otherwise in some texts. I have a Ngenic Tune smart thermostat that, from what I have read, seems to be supported in Homey by using the http request card in flows. However, I have not found a tutorial or other explanation of how to use http request cards, so that isn’t available in my Homey. I have an Easee electric car charger, but the Easee app only works in Homey Pro. I have solar panels connected to a SolarEdge inverter, but the SolarEdge app also only works with Homey Pro.
What I can do with all this are, as far as I have understood, the same things I could do without the Homey Bridge. Mostly turn lights on and off automatically, by hand or by voice commands. What is Homey Bridge supposed to add to a smart home? Very few of the apps seems to be supported in Bridge.
My other question is about documentation. Is there a user manual, tutorials or other ways to learn how to use Homey Bridge specifically. I have found some for the Homey Pro but that doesn’t help a lot since their capacity are so different. I also saw the beginner videos and they didn’t explain any of the advanced features of flows.
