No, it is not just having a dongle. It is also having a driver for it on linux. I only know of one zigbee USB dongle and it combines zwave and zigbee.
Openluup (22 devices, 58 scenes, 11 apps) and iobroker controlling VeraPlus with 117 zwave nodes, 8 Zigbee nodes, 7 apps, 246 vera devices, 80 scenes; VeraEdge (0 node, 26 devices, 6 App, 0 scene); Bridged to Homekit and Alexa.

Hello,

there is ZiGate : https://zigate.fr/

If you want to use it on the Vera, you can use my plugin : https://github.com/vosmont/Vera-Plugin-ZiGateGateway

Vosmont, looks very impressive, really good. I was not aware of this option, good to know it exists. So I can look into Zigbee alternatives for the lights.
Vera lite UI7 Europe, Vera Plus, Zwave.me switches/dimmers, Zwave.me plus multi switch, Fibaro switches and multi sensors, Everspring sensors motion, temp., humidity. Honeywell Evohome, Greenwave, Sonos, Brel shades, RFXCOM, MiLights, Alexa.

very nice indeed. Not available everywhere though. It's a French company. I might actually get one of these.
