Sorry if this topic is repeated i just cant really found anything to answer my question .
I have a few Xiaomi sensors around my home and since a few of the far away sensors sometimes loosing connection i decided to buy IKEA repeater.
I then only connected it to the power outlet (couldn't find any pairing button).
After i unplug the hubitat hub for a few hours and also a few days pass i checked the Zigbee route table and it looks like the repeater is not part of my mesh .
Do i need to do anything so the IKEA repeater will connect to the hubitat and to the xiaomi sensors ?
Do i need to discover the IKEA repeater device in the hubitat "Discover Devices"?
Yes, you need to pair the repeater to your hub. I forget the exact steps but you might have to reset it first. Notice the small hole next to the USB outlet. You can stick a small pin in there to activate the button.
EDIT: It looks like you have to hold the button in for five or six seconds to get it to pair.
I have 3 of those repeaters and they work well ,as I have about 12 Xiaomi devices. What I did was pair the first one closest to the hub, wait about 10min, then pair then next one and then the next one 10min later working my outwards from the hub. Once they paired just leave them and let the mesh sort itself out.
