I just ordered $100 worth of eWeLink ZigBee sockets and have discovered that these do not work with the SmartThings Hub. I’m wondering now, after looking into various posts about this…why doesn’t this work?
SmartThings Hub uses ZigBee protocol HA 1.2 (FAQ: Zigbee Application Profiles, or why not all zigbee devices work with SmartThings)
Amazon Echo uses ZigBee protocol HA 1.2 (https://developer.amazon.com/docs/smarthome/echo-plus-zigbee-support.html)
I don’t see, or can’t find, the protocol used by eWeLink. But if this works with Amazon Echo, then wouldn’t this have to be HA1.2 also ?
In the SmartThings App when I find the device, the device is found but doesn’t ever become recognized. It just remains as a “Thing” and I will never be able to get a status from it. It “should” be recognized as a socket. Why is this the case? Is there a way for me to see the raw logs of the communication that are happening?
