A noob question here, is there any way to add devices via router instead of the coordinator? I see that on the UI of Z2M, there is a drop down for permit join(All). I tried selecting other router, but it doesn’t seem to work. Is there any configuration needed for this to work?
I m currently using a raspberry pi4 with cc2531 as my coordinator. I m currently close on “max-ing” out my coordinator device limit. I have been trying to re-position the end devices closer to my router, in hope they “ditch” their direct route/connection to the coordinator. Some worked, some don’t. I know cc2531 isn’t the best coordinator, but I m left with little choice since its the one that is readily available online., i would like to stick to z2m.
I the following devices that act as a router.
1 x cc2531 flashed with router firmware
1 x ikea repeater
1 x sonoff zbmini
5 x sonoff basiczbr3
3 x tuya powered led controller.
I believe that the above should be sufficient to bring me well pass 100 devices in total (if i m able to pair them ‘efficiently’ to the closest router instead of the coordinator). Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.
Thanks in advance
