I’m new to the ST ecosystem, or actually smart devices in general. I’m interested in learning much more and possibly developing for ST as a hobby. It would be great if someone could shed a little light on my still somewhat confused mind on ST. These are the questions I have in mind at the moment:
1.Should I start with learning Groovy IDE? Or is it better to go with Webcore? (from what I’ve read, some users seem to think Groovy might be going away in the near future)
I’d like to use Xiaomi devices with ST. I’ve already used @ArstenA’s device handlers for I think 7 devices and they’re all working and so far none have dropped a connection. I have the ST Hub v3. I ordered more Xiaomi sensors and would be interested in developing ST device handlers for them (for example, the Xiaomi Flora sensor). I’m not an advanced developer. Am I too optimistic? Where would I begin? Where can I read more on how to communicate with a Xiaomi device?
Is it possible to create automations that span across multiple hubs from different manufacturers? For example, a light bulb connected to ST hub would turn on if a motion detector connected to a Xiaomi hub is triggered?
Thanks a lot!
