Using Echo devices as zigbee routers

Can anyone provide advice as to using echo devices with zigbee as routers instead of coordinators?

Can you point to such a device?

Echo Show, Echo Plus, some of the newly announced devices.

Just some googling. I didn’t realise Amazon did that.

Won’t you need a different firmware? Are these things open source?

Don’t believe this is possible unfortunately.

That is unfortunate

I think amazon want to coordinate the world, not route traffic to another coordinator :slight_smile:

Anyway routers are cheap :slight_smile:

Yes I know. When you have 150 + devices on your network though it would be nice to be able to use them as routers to strengthen the mesh
