My sky connect arrived in the post, I connected it to my rpi4 that runs home assistant (via the supplied usb extension cable) . Disconnected and uninstalled my old zigbee radio and zigbee2mqtt, and zigbee devices ( I can always restore them from a backup)
The new device was noticed, and configured up (see attached screenshot).
When I try and pair any of my zigbee devices it cannot find anything. So far I have tried with a few philips hue switches and bulbs, which i did a factory reset on before entering pairing mode, I’ve also tried it with xaomi zigbee sensors , which I also reset and put back into pairing mode.
The devices were about 4 feet from the sky connect when I attempted to pair them.
It never seems to see anything and just times out.
Is there anything else I can try to get it to work, or use to try and diagnose the issue? At the moment it is just a plastic ornament in a nice shade of blue.
Also is there a link to the configuration documentation? The home assistant sky connect page just lists the tech specs and says available soon.
Any help greatly appreciated.
