But on their site said they were not compatible. Who is right?

Their list compatible devices: http://www.ezzigbee.com/hubs/

 

Also, do these switches need another hub or they can connect directly to comcast panel?

I don't know about the bulbs, but the Ge switches and plug in modules work directly with the Xfinity system.  They even show up on the touch screen and can be controlled by an existing Xfinity interface including the touchscreen, TV app, web portal and mobile app. Nothing else is needed. Paring is a snap.

Is it zigbee or zwave?

It was a zwave. I returned it for a Centralite lamp controller. It paired fine along with a Sengled LED bulb. Both on Amazon for reasonable prices.

When will if ever Xfinity Home be compatible with Philips Hue? These are very popular bulbs, why can't I control it from my app. Please fix that.

For the SengLED LED bulbs, is a SengLED Hub required or can the Xfinity Home touchscreen communicate directly with the bulbs?

I connected them to the Xfinity home touchscreen. After I inserted  in the bulbs and turned on the lights they started dimming to show they were ready to pair. I used the touchscreen at that point; settings, enter your code, devices. I saw a message that said searching then tapped next when they showed up. They paired and I renamed them. Afterward you can log into Xfinity home and create rules to turn them on and off at certain times. You can also have them turn on when your alarm goes off. I did this a while ago, so sorry if I've skipped a step but it's not hard to pair them. I bought them on Amazon which described them as a 22 year bulb. When all was done they showed up on our iPhones and iPads. We can also turn them on and off from the apps as well.
