Oldcomperwiz’s remark on the repeater not working made me think about the repeater I bought. I bought a Sylvania smart plug on Amazon, because the Q&A section addressed whether it was or not. The person who answered it though was not the manufacturer or seller, so I wrote Sylvania and they confirmed that it was not a repeater.
I’ve read on many forums that devices that are hard wired or plugged in act as repeaters, but in this case it is not true. I bought a Peanut plug, rebooted the hub, and added the fan remote. Now the ST app operates the fan and light like a charm.
It kind of sucks that I had to use a repeater, because I don’t really need one in the bedroom. However, I was able to buy the Hampton Bay Zigbee device for only $20. For anyone in Minneapolis/St Paul that would like to get one, I bought mine at MN Home Outlet in Woodbury. There were two left when I got mine.
