A device that has obtained Zigbee 3.0 certification must meet the specific clusters required by the Zigbee alliance certificated product compliance.
The cluster is a specification defining one or more attributes, commands, behaviors, and dependencies, that support an independent utility or application function. The term may also be used for the implementation or instance of such a specification on an endpoint.
Since these devices meet different clusters, we can add these 3.0-certified devices to iHost according to the cluster capabilities of the devices. and retain their most basic abilities. Now we support the following clusters:
The process of adding Zigbee device is as follows:
Make Zigbee device enters pairing mode, iHost will search for and discover it.
Depending on the Device Type, we consider it a standard device such as a switch, plug, light, temperature sensor, IAS security sensor, or Curtain.
Then we will further retrieve the cluster that the device has, and generate the corresponding capabilities that can be controlled. For example, the Color dimmable light has the “Color control” cluster, so it can be adjusted color in iHost.
In this way, the certified Zigbee 3.0 devices can be added and controlled in iHost.
iHost supports adding a Zigbee switch, plug, light, temperature sensor, IAS security sensor, and Curtain.
According to different functions, usage methods, and product forms, these devices have corresponding Device types in CSA. You can visit the link and check:
Here is the Zigbee device type list we considered that iHost supported.
Note: The other branded Zigbee devices may not be fully compatible with iHost due to their own private protocols, please be subject to the actual.
If you are using a third-party Zigbee sub-device and encounter the situation that the device has obtained Zigbee 3.0 certification, but cannot be added to iHost, please report your problem in iHost Feedback. We will try our best to meet your requirements and let you get a better user experience.
