Zigbee 3.0 In-Wall Receptacle with Repeater 2024

It’s April 2024. I am looking for a Zigbee 3.0 In-Wall receptacle (1-gang, duplex, NEMA 5-15, USA, UL/ETL certified) that I can use as a repeater in my installation and get rid of some wall-warty Zigbee smart plugs that are hanging off of the current dumb receptacles. The key criteria is compatibility with SmartThings (Aeotec Hub v3) with good ability to repeat all commands to strengthen the Zigbee network. Other features like power monitoring are not that important. In the United States so it has to be available in the United States.

A lot of these devices have come and gone over the years. After looking around I narrowed things down to the Xenon In-Wall Outlet pair of devices, SM-PW801-U2Z, SM-PW801-U1Z. Apparently legrand introduced a “netatmo” Smart Outlet, WNRR15WH etc., but reports suggest that it does not repeat Zigbee packets reliably.

Somebody posted about them: Prakriti Smart zigbee dual wall outlet Edge driver?

The SM-PW801-U1Z appears to be hard to find in-stock in the US, so any tips would be good.

That was me and these devices are not that good. They work and all, but plugs do not stay in the socket because of poor design. If the glass plate and plastic cover weren’t so thick, then perhaps these would be ok.

I’m getting rid of my two as soon as Inovelli get these to market:


Leviton makes a nice Zigbee 3.0 model in their Lumina line, but the problem is they’re mostly sold to commercial installers and they’re hard to find for individual retail sale.

Knight Audio and Lighting is a commercial installation service which is also willing to sell individual pieces online. They have it, but the price is pretty high.

Other than that, you’d have to look around for a source.

Jasco also made one for their enbrighten line, but it doesn’t seem to have been successful for them, and pretty much everybody, including Amazon and the Jasco website, show it as out of stock and not sure if it will be restocked. Model 43102. You could check with Jasco and see if they expect to make any more. :thinking:

A friend of mine who is a contractor says he has had good luck at his local Home Depot getting them to order Leviton devices which are not normally carried in store since they do carry a lot of Leviton, but, then, he’s a contractor and I don’t know if that makes a difference. Wouldn’t hurt to ask. :sunglasses:

I also have a few of these, including the outdoor version, and they are not the most stable device. I find that I have to power cycle them 2 or 3 times a year. These will also be replaced.


Interesting. I have one of the GE/Jasco Model 43102 outlets in the laundry room. It’s in a spot where I’ve never actually plugged anything into it.

It’s been there for a couple of years and is just there as a repeater to support a Zigbee leak sensor under the washing machine that wasn’t reachable otherwise. Never had a lick of trouble with it in that limited use situation.



So, the Xenon (Prakriti Smart) receptacles are out, which also eliminates the rebadged versions such as Screen Innovations.

The Inovelli is interesting, if it ever gets to market. However, it does not solve my problem right now. The roadmap says November 2024.

I will see about sourcing a couple of the Leviton ZSTLR-1HW receptacles. The price is high, but it is marketed right.


Yeah, mine are in constant use, especially a couple older ones, which are more problematic.

I bought two of the Leviton ZSTLR-1HW and did the initial pairing. SmartThings recognizes it as a generic “Zigbee Switch” that also exposes dimmer functionality, but as far as I can tell, it does not have any dimming functionality.

I contacted like five different Leviton resellers (including Home Depot, a local electrical supply house, and others), but only GoKnight followed through and got the ZSTLR-1HW shipped.

The receptacle seems like it works fine. There is a very small and unobtrusive blue light indicator to see if the Zigbee-controlled outlet is energized or not. I do not think the pin point light will bother me, but if it ends up bothering me (or you) I (or you) can just put some white electrical tape over it. I still want to visualize my network to see how it is routing packets between other devices after I install two of them in wall boxes. Also, how do I modify or update the driver to remove the non-functional dimming feature?

There is no energy monitoring in this product as far as I can tell. That is not a problem for me since I really only care to use it as a repeater anyway.

Glad you found a source! Weird that SmartThings thinks it’s a dimmer, I’m assuming there’s no matching fingerprint but I would’ve expected SmartThings to use a binary on/off switch for its “lowest common denominator“ edge driver, not a dimmer. :man_shrugging:t2:

I’ll leave it to others to discuss how you might modify the edge driver or, more likely modify a binary on/off edge driver to include your device’s fingerprint.

As for blocking out the LED indicator. As I’ve mentioned before, I use this specific brand of stickers and really like them. We use them on a lot of different equipment around the house. They come in white, black, or silver, and are very unobtrusive. The white ones aren’t as good at blocking as the other two, so sometimes we’ve had to use two of those, but still a good choice. We’ve tried lots of different brands over the years, but this is our favorite. Lots of sizes, well cut, comes off easily.


Every time we’ve gotten ours, they come in a regular first class envelope, not an Amazon package or a padded envelope, so check the mail carefully to make sure you don’t think it’s junk mail and throw it out. :sunglasses:

Btw, The indicator light is now a code requirement in most US jurisdictions. It’s supposed to let someone working on the device know if it’s still connected to the network and therefore might be turned on unexpectedly.

I mention that because if you have a building inspection, like if you were renovating something else in that room, the safety inspector might object to tape over the outlet’s indicator light and tell you to take it off. The Dims stickers solve that problem in the original strength since they only block about 50% of the brightness and you can still see that the light is on, it’s just not as bright. The blackout strength would technically not meet code, but as I mentioned, those stickers are very easy to remove if needed.
