Third-Party Zigbee Devices Compatibility for eWeLink CUBE I Tested

Hey there,

As someone who’s really into smart homes, I tend to buy all sorts of gadgets for reviews or just to mess around with them. :ghost:

Since I’ve got iHost, I’ve been testing every Zigbee device I buy with it. Personally, I think it’s neat to keep track of compatibility, so I’m gonna start a list based on my recent tests.

As Zigbee devices could act differently depending on the firmware version, all tests were based on the latest firmware.

Feel free to throw in your experiences! It’d be great to let each other know what’s working and what’s not.

About IKEA Zigbee Lights

All my IKEA TRÅDFRI series lights (old ones) work great, so I will skip these; The new energy-efficient version works perfectly too!

Thanks for sharing! It’s nice to have such a thread. A lot of certified zb 3.0 devices are not as “standardized” as expect to work with zigbee 3.0 gateways from different brands.

We hope to make

  • IKEA VALLHORN Motion Sensor
  • IKEA PARASOLL Contact Sensor

these two products compatible, but we can’t buy these two models, I wonder if you are willing to cooperate with our follow-up debugging to make them compatible :smile:

Glad to help! Actually, I have brought an extra two from German IKEA, and they are right on our dev’s desk :ghost:


I tried IKEA RODRET zigbee switch and it shows that its not supported yet, maybe you can make it work.

RODRET is a nice one! I use it to directly connect a lamp without a gateway (Zigbee Light Link feature).

Back to your feedback, dimmer support is under our consideration, but right now we focus more on getting the very core device types to work better and more steady

Frient intelligent smoke and heat detectors are not compatible

Hey all,

We have rolled out a new release 1.13.4, which optimized the strategy how eWeLink CUBE/iHost handles third-party Zigbee devices.

Some issues like false device types could be fixed in this version.

Has there been any progress with the IKEA Vallhorn devices ?

It requires a major upgrade to the Zigbee2Cube component, which takes time and more testing before it’s ready for more devices.

The list is updated with two Third Reality devices I recently got.

They both work perfectly with Zigbee2CUBE toggled off.

Got a water leakage sensor from IKEA, it works great
