zigbee extender/repeater

#1 Post by pilot1981 » 15 May 2019, 11:18

HI,
I'm looking for a solution to repeat/extend zigbee signal of my Aqara network in outdoor using and external lamp 220v or a plastic manhole cover with 220v power...Any idea? I can use Esp Easy for it?

I searched in forum but I don't find solution for it...

Zigbee is not part of the current scoop of ESP Easy. But if you find some good IC to implement please add a feature request on GitHub. You need to do some work yourself to make the job as easy as possible for us developing the FW. Thanks!

I don't think it makes sense to combine a whole network (zigbee) which is mesh based and requires different approach with ESPEasy; I can't see how it should be working...
My zigbee network is quite big, more than 30 devices and one coordinator (used from Home Assistant) plus several repeater to expand the coverage.
The repeater itself does not require nothing else than power supply then it runs his own firmware, connecting it to the zigbee network and acceptin pairing of nearby devices.

to extend the zigbee signal it really depends on which Hub you have and it's really out-of-scope of the ESPEasy project in my opinion.
