I ordered two of these, flashed one as a router and kept the other as the coordinator. It appeared to already have the latest firmware. As I previously had a CC2531 configured on my home assistant, it was just a matter of unplugging the old dongle, changing the configuration port to /dev/ttyUSB0 and plugging in the new one. The signal link quality across the entire network has improved. No more laggy behaviours or missing temperature reading. Have 30+ devices on the network. This week I put the second one as a repeater to make the signal stronger and the mesh more resilient. So far so good
did firmware update (via terminal) and works with mqtt2zigbee
Plugged the dongle and USB-extension cable to my VMware host, did USB-passthrough to virtual machine and start Zigbee2MQTT Docker container. So far everything just works, as they should. Can finally change my home automation away from the previous proprietary setup.
Worked out of the box with zigbee2mqtt and homeassistant. Due to the good documentation i was able to flash ist with the latest firmware to be 100% compatible to more vedors.
Inexpensive and great support beyond Itead. Works fine in Home Assistant as I slowly migrate from OpenHAB. Updated with some open source tools and started adding devices. I couldn't be happier. I wish my Zwave experience was this smooth. I really should have ordered two because now I need another for automation at work.
Working fine with Homeassistant and Z2MQTT.
Shipping costs are too much for a slow shipping imho
Dongle gets recognized and has a great range compared to my previous dongle. BUT pairing devices is a real nightmare. Some devices manage to get paired after 10+ tries, others simply refuse... while they're pairing just fine with the old dongle.
I've read that a firmware update could partially resolve this, but I have yet to try that.
Very nice hardware and casing. Easy to flash with firmware for zigbee2mqtt as routers.
Great price and works great after manually updating.
