On May 12th, we released eWeLink CUBE V1.6.0 , and one of the important new features, provided through the Pilot Features Program, is Zigbee2CUBE. which enables compatibility with NON-ZigBee 3.0 standard protocol devices.
We are delighted to see that many users have already started using this feature and successfully added NON-ZigBee 3.0 standard protocol devices to iHost that were previously unable to be added. We have also received some user feedback, such as "Why isn’t my ZigBee device recognized?” “Why does my ZigBee device appear to be missing some functionalities?” and “Why is the device type displayed incorrectly for my ZigBee device?”
Please rest assured that we have received all your feedback, we appreciated that, and we have figured out some solutions to address these issues. However, as you may know, the compatibility issue with ZigBee devices is a complex and time-consuming project. We cannot guarantee compatibility with all ZigBee devices available on the market, but what we can assure you is that we will continuously try our best to improve iHost’s compatibility with ZigBee devices, especially NON-ZigBee 3.0 standard protocol devices.
Through this post, hoping we can provide you with a quick understanding of Zigbee2CUBE’s compatibility with NON-ZigBee 3.0 standard protocol devices and offer a list of devices that are currently supported theoretically, including the brand, model, and capabilities.
Simply put, Zigbee2CUBE is middleware or an adapter integrated into the eWeLink CUBE system. It analyzes the model and capabilities (exposes) information reported by NON-ZigBee 3.0 standard protocol devices during pairing and maps them into those that can be recognized by iHost.
2, What are the conditions for NON-ZigBee 3.0 devices to be compatible with and correctly displayed in the iHost web portal?
There are three conditions that must be met simultaneously:
The model reported by the ZigBee device falls within the types supported by Zigbee2CUBE.
The capabilities (exposes) reported by the ZigBee device fall within the types supported by Zigbee2CUBE.
The eWeLink CUBE system has the corresponding UI capability, meaning it can display the device properly, for now, switch classes, lighting classes, and some sensor classes are supported.

Please note, there are thousand of Zigbee devices available on the market, we can’t test them one by one, so this is a list of devices theoretically.
4, What should I do if my ZigBee device cannot be recognized, or lacks certain features after adding, or has an incorrect device type after adding?
Please place a reply with the specific Brand/Vendor and Model of your devices on this topic, and we will continuously improve the compatibility of ZigBee devices based on your feedback.
