Alexander, Echo V4 zigbee hub

Is it possible? Right now I'm using smart life app and have added a zigbee gateway. I then added around 30 zigbee v3 power sockets. These are then used with things like a printer, so can switch the printers power off.

 

However the smart life servers are not good, or the app, no local control, so if server goes down you can't control anything, power sockets thermostat etc.

 

So I decided to give the new Alexa v4 device a try, it has a zigbee hub built in, so it arrived today, I put a smart power plug in setup mode and it was found in seconds. Now I can control it with all echo devices.

But how to control with Google home and the nests.

Strangly the Alexa app is saying the sockets I added came from Ealing, I do have that app installed with 1 power switch.

 

Anyway out of this, only want the alexa hub, so use the amazon servers

 

Thanks
