Zigbee and Thread USB stick by the creators of Home Assistant

Home Assistant SkyConnect is the easiest way to add Zigbee support to your Home Assistant instance and make it Matter-ready. Home Assistant SkyConnect features a transmit power of up to 20 dBm and over-the-air updates.


The Home Assistant team officially supports ZHA (Zigbee Home Automation), the Zigbee stack integrated into Home Assistant Core. The following guides describe how to use SkyConnect with ZHA.

Thread and Matter

SkyConnect comes with experimental support to power Thread (used for some Matter devices) and Zigbee networks at the same time. Before enabling multiprotocol support, check the section about multiprotocol issues.
