Wi-Fi + BLE + ZigBee + Thread + 6LoWPAN + HomeKit = LilyGO T-Zigbee. At Just 10$, LilyGO T-Zigbee is the most jam-packed Multi-Protocol Wireless board. How is this achieved?
It combines Epressif's ESP32-C3 with Telink TLSR8258 Multi-Protocol Wireless SoC to achieve this. LilyGO T-Zigbee is best suited for making Protocol Bridges or Gateways.
Some Important Features:
1. Single USB Type C Port for Power & Programming
2. Along with 2x PCB Antennas, 2x u.FL antenna connectors are also provided (improve range with external antennas)
3. Separate DIP switches for ESP32 & TLSR for mode selection
4. Both ESP32 & TLSR GPIOs are accessible (with some limitations, of course)
There are some example code in this GitHub Link: https://lnkd.in/gBQz_9u2
You can try out the ZigBee2Mqtt bridge code.
As it's a pretty new board, as of now example code & documentation are available only for Wi-Fi & ZigBee Bridge. If you want to explore other radio features, you are on your own.
