I pre-ordered a SkyConnect, and I wanted to replace my ConBee II + DeConz setup as it didn’t really work with many devices, Z2M is a bit too much for my setup, and I thought that SkyConnect + ZHA might do the trick, but things didn’t go as planned.
My setup is composed of a Raspberry Pi 4 running HASS.io, and I plugged the SkyConnect to the extension cable to one of the USB 2 ports of my setup. The issue is that the SkyConnect would often not pair devices that I previously paired with DeConz (I followed up the guide here, I reseted them, I even tried on a blank new instance of Home Assistant) and when I finally could pair them, they would quickly become unavailable and never get back online, unless I repaired them. At that point, they would become unavailable once again. I updated SkyConnect firmware, no luck there either.
I did some tests, and migrated the whole setup to ConBee II with ZHA, everything was working almost fully. I did a third attempt, switching to the SONOFF Dongle, and everything is working fine.
I found several posts about SkyConnect misbehaving in certain ways, and I tried all the solutions posted in them, but at this point I think mine might be faulty. What would you think? Should I ask for a replacement?
