    The Osram Plug works pretty well as a repeater. I have it located centrally and it seems to have all kinds of connections going to it.

    A lot of people from SmartThings use those. I've found that although ST works ok with the plug for some and others reporting problems. There's reports on other forums like Hubitat where they like them also but they know they sometimes cause z-wave issues.

    Jeubanks,

    Bulb and plugs are the main routers in a Zigbee network, also some senors are seen as routers, but mainly when they are mains powered.

    Larry has seen that the sengled bulbs are not routers, so that is a major difference to the standards.

    Plugs that are known are coming from Osram, Xiaomi and Heiman. There might be more, but then I have not seen them yet.

    What power plugs work with deConz?
    Are Bulbs still the best option for repeaters?

    Thanks in advance. I've seen the list on the deConz github but I want trusted sources from actual HS users.
    John, bulbs are still the best and are referred to as routers. Battery powered devices are called End Devices. Sylvania (Osram Lightify) also makes a plug that is a router.

    If the color band to the left of the device in deconz is yellow it is a router, grey if it is not. One exception is the sengled bulbs. I found out they show grey but they connect directly to the conbee so it is a router.
