Smartthings Motion Sensor - repeater

I have the latest version of the Smartthings Motion Sensor. It is powered by a battery. The spec says that it is ZigBee3 but I have read that battery operated devices won’t work as a repeater. Will this work as a repeater?


Zigbee 3.0 is essentially the language that the devices on the network use to communicate with each other. That includes both the battery operated devices and the Mains powered repeaters. So being Zigbee 3.0 doesn’t mean it’s a repeater, that’s just the language it uses to communicate with the devices that are repeaters.

Thank you much
