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.
