SkyConnect Zigbee coordinator
SkyConnect provides an easy connection with Zigbee at Home Assistant through ZHA integration or Zigbee2MQTT. The product supports firmware Update via the USB interface, which allows easy and quick firmware updates. The device is an EFR32 Series 2 (Silicon Labs EZSP v8) adapter that will transmit at a power of +20 dBm. The drive supports full-speed USB 2.0 when plugged into the included USB extender.
The hardware is based on a Silicon Labs EFR32MG21 SoC with an IEEE 802.15.4 multi-protocol 2.4GHz radio MCU that is capable of concurrently running both Zigbee 3.0 (EmberZNet/EZSP) and Thread (OpenThread/Spinel inc. Matter/CHIP over Thread) stacks/protocols at the same time by using firmware in RCP (Radio Co-Processor) mode. Direct local serial communication is done via an onboard USB-to-UART bridge/converter (a chip in Silicon Labs CP210x series).
