Zigbee Map App or Generator

Is anyone using an app on a tablet or mobile to “Map” their zigbee topology? I am not talking about hacking a Digi XCTU but an off the shelf app or software. I am getting drop out on some of my smoke detectors and would like to see which repeaters they are connected to. Hubitat seem to have the sort of think I was looking for here

I am sure there are some sort of network sniffers, but most I can find are only wifi probably because you need to connect a zigbee dongle to the phone/tablet

Hubitat exposes the information needed for such a map; SmartThings does not. :disappointed_relieved:

The only way to get a Zigbee map for a SmartThings network is the one you already mentioned: add a Zigbee device to your network that comes with its own mapping utilities, typically Digi XCTU. It requires some technical skill, but it’s doable.

Note also that generalized sniffer apps don’t give you the kind of route map that you’re looking for. They’re basically just detecting the loudness of signals nearby. They don’t show you parent and child relationships: for that, you need a mapping utility using a device which is actually participating in your network.

Thanks @JDRoberts I didn’t think it would be straight forward :face_exhaling: Oh well I’ll keep looking.
