Zigbee hub and third-party devices?

Zigbee hub and third-party devices?

** Background ** I have a few smart Sonoff Wifi switches in my house and I have various problems with them – especially stability, where I think some are related to wifi coverage. I tried to flash the Sonoff devices with Tasmota and ESPHome and connect them to the Home-Assistant. When it works, I really like it – but the stability issues bother me. Some nights I can’t turn off a light with Siri because the light has lost its wifi connection. ** What to do ** I am thinking of switching my smarthome devices to Zigbee, because I face various problems, as I mentioned above. At the moment I have Hue and some Trådfri bulbs and, as I mentioned earlier, I have some Sonoff switches (basic + S20). When using a Philips Hue gateway, you may use third-party bulbs, but they are not accessible in Homekit. Is there a Homekit compatible Zigbee hub that allows third party Zigbee devices to be transmitted to Homekit? Maybe “Zemismart Zigbee Hub” or “Aqara M2 Hub”? Or should I look at something else? ** TL; DR: ** Is there a Zigbee hub that can use third-party Zigbee devices and analyze them on Homekit?
