Great hardware and design

There are several dongles available out there but this one has a great design and most importantly has been very reliable (I have it since 2 weeks). The antenna and metal casing seem to really help the signal reliability, I had tons of issues with cheap CC2531s from Aliexpress. I'm quite impressed with the Sonoff zigbee line - they have been the easiest to integrate and configure with Homeassistant.

Thread firmware not available yet

Bought to use with Thread.. No firmware yet, so still waiting

Works with Zigbee2mqtt and Home Assistant

Fast response of my zigbee devices. Good signal strenght. Would like to have support for Thread.

Bob Hoskins
Still waiting for RCP Thread firmware

Signal strength good. Fast chip. Itead still not released Thread compatible firmware.

Works ok but no support for Thread

Chipset is capable of Thread however vendor stubbornly won’t provide a firmware to support Thread

Works Well

Got this stick as a replacement for the Conbee II stick. The response time of lights and sensors are allot better.

Only I would like to improve my mesh network, are there any tips on how to improve the mesh? Some sensors are not connected to right routers, which causes some delay in the response times.

Home Assistant on Raspberry Pi4 - plug and play

Removed my Hubitat that was my ZIgbee Hub, plugged in the Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus and it found all of my Zigbee appliances.
Has a wider coverage than the Hubitat.

Off to a rough start

I'm still getting this working; it registers as USB1.2 on my server which poses issues for the other devices on that port.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We have contacted you through email since we may want further information to discover the problem and assist you in resolving it. Please check your inbox and respond to us.
