I’ve bought a couple of Xiaomi motion and door sensors. Out of the box, they seemed to be ideal. They paired really easily and appeared to work well - thanks to the people involved in writing the device handlers!
After a few days, a couple dropped off. Re pairing was a little more difficult, however they started working again. It seemed that they’d fall off the network if another ZigBee network was present when pairing. I switched off all my hue devices and re paired, and left the sensors by the smartthings hub for 24 hours. Also, I switched off device health.
The issue I now have is range. They don’t seem to use the network created by my hue and smartthings plugs. The range seems to be determined by proximity to the smartthings hub.
Is there any solution?
