Sonoff zigbee sockets

I just got my ihost a couple of days ago. My light switches seem to work as expected but my zigbee sockest don’t. If installed through ewelink app they don not get ‘seen’ by ihost. If installed by ihost they are seen but vanish from ewelink and then don’t work as expected ONLY through ihost! I notice that lan controil is missing from the sockets settings? Is ther some way to get them working with ihost or is there a firmware update required?
I have a lot invested in sonoff hardware and am very disappointed that I cannot get all of my devices to work.
Also I have a number of Ikea led lights is there some way to control them with ihost?
Thanks in anticipation of your time and assistance.
