SMLIGHT launches Zigbee Ethernet/WiFi coordinators and USB adapters based on TI CC2652P7 or CC2674P10 wireless chips

SMLIGHT has recently released Zigbee Ethernet/WiFi/USB coordinators and USB dongles based on either Texas Instruments CC2652P7 or CC2674P10 wireless microcontrollers that update on the company’s SLZB-06 Zigbee 3.0 to PoE Ethernet, USB, and WiFi adapter and Silicon Labs EFR32MG21-based SLZB-07 Zigbee 3.0 USB adapter.

That’s a total of four new devices with the SLZB-06p7 and SLZB-07p7 based on CC2652P7 and designed to work with vendor-agnostic software such as Zigbee2MQTT and Home Assistant ZHA, and the similar SLZB-06p10 and SLZB-06p10 based on the CC2674P10 whose Zigbee firmware is still under development according to SMLIGHT.

Texas Instruments CC2652P Zigbee PoE Ethernet board

The SLZB-06p7 and SLZB-06p10 Zigbee/Ethernet/USB/WiFi adapter ship with a +5dB antenna. The devices are said to work with Home Assistant and Zigbee2MQTT out of the box thanks to the ESP32 firmware pre-loaded on the board with the following features:

  • Update Zigbee and Core firmware OTA
  • VPN support
  • Localization in 15 languages
  • Change Ethernet/USB/Wi-Fi adapter mode through firmware or by button
  • Secure login with username and password
  • DHCP or static IP address for Ethernet connection
  • Customizable LEDs behavior
  • Responsive web interface based on Bootstrap 5.2

The company still points to the older user manual for the original SLZB-06 launched in 2022.

SLZB-07p7 and SLZB-07p10 Zigbee 3.0 USB dongle

SMLIGHT SLZB-07p7 and SLZB-07p10

The SLZB-07p7 and SLZB-07p10 Zigbee 3.0 USB dongles are also based on TI CC2652P7 and CC2652P10 wireless microcontrollers and come with a +3Db antenna. They also feature the same CP2102N USB UART chip and work with ZHA Integration for Home Assistant and Zigbee2MQTT. Besides Zigbee connectivity, Thread/Matter experimental support is also available through Home Assistant. The user manual has some more detail, but as far as I can see, all information is still for the SiLabs model instead of the new ones.

SMLIGHT sells the SLZB-06p7 for $34.99, the SLZB-07p7 for $9.99, and the p10 variants can be had for $5 extra. You’ll find them on the SMLight shop and Aliexpress, Note that the p10 models are only suitable for developers right now since the Zigbee firmware is still under development.

Does it include a thread border router in its firmware?

Does not say what firmware it is flashed with but if these are already shipping then I doubt the first batch comes pre-flashed with an OpenThread firmware, though it is not impossible. See this older but still related discussion here -> https://github.com/home-assistant/addons-development/issues/38
