Smart things outlet as router with aqara?

I have a number of smart things energy outlets, and they don’t seem to be working well as routers for my aqara temp/ humidity sensors. The sensors become unavailable. Strangle the aqara PIR sensors seem ok I think.

I have now read that the smart things outlets don’t work well with aqara.

Can anyone suggest ways to try to make them work? Or do I just need to swap out the smart things outlet for another make?

I am in the uk and I need energy monitoring outlets / plugs.
