I am sorry to say that the Samsung Home Connect may just not work with Xiaomi Zigbee devices, because it is different from the SmartThings v2 hub and also uses different firmware.

Please see my post here for more information and quotes from other Samsung Home Connect users who were unable to keep Xiaomi devices connected.

Thank you very much. For a quick reply that’s what I was thinking but my question is if it works 1 hour without any problem is doing on off is detect motion and does all functions properly exactly after 1 hour it just goes offline I’m pretty much newbie with these things but I was thinking it maybe there is a small change will help us I hope someone can take a look appreciate in advance your help and reply

Only SmartThings would be able to make a change that would help, and I don’t think it’s likely that will happen because the issue with Xiaomi devices dropping their connection is because they don’t behave as Zigbee devices are supposed to.

Here’s the explanation from a SmartThings Software Engineer:

(a partial quote from this forum post)

So as you can hopefully see from the above explanation, even though the Xiaomi devices seem to work fine for the first hour, the hub is looking for a different kind of check-in message from the device, which Xiaomi devices send either every 50 or 60 minutes. Then, because the Xiaomi device doesn’t re-join as requested, the connection is dropped.

In the current firmware of the SmartThings v2 hub, it appears that Xiaomi devices are allowed to keep their connection when they check-in with the hub, while on other SmartThings hub products, such as the Home Connect or SmartThings Link for NVIDIA Shield, probably send the leave and rejoin request which results in the lost connection.

It’s not Xiaomi fault or ST fault. You are using non compliance device and expect ST to support it.

It work then count your self lucky.
