I have some of my sonoffs connected to a wirelessly uplinked unifi accesspoint which is as close to a mesh as I am prepared to go, and they seem to work just fine.
Remark: I don't need to turn off any Deco M5 unit during mentioned pairing mode...
Helo everybody! I purchased one TP-Link Deco M5 3 weeks ago (March 28th). After easy installation of TP-Link Deco M5 (kit with 3 pcs) I faced problems with sonoff Touch switch (I have 2 in my home - 1 gang). I also have 2 sonoff dual wifi switches but in these switches I doesn't have any problem when I changed for deco m5 mesh wifi. I only solved this issue in the sonoff touch switch pairing again the both wifi switches using one old cellphone (android samsung) that only use 2,5GHz band for wifi connection. With this cellphone I don't have any problem and then the switches worked immediately (after normal pairing process = pull the setup buttom for almost 7 seconds and then start paring mode). I hope that these information will help you!
Thank you, Jon. Let me see what the app looks like on Android and maybe I can find a similar one for iOS.
Have a great day ahead!
Yes I'm on android, I assume there is an equivalent for iPhone you'll have to investigate I have no experience with apple
Thanks again for responding.
I take it this app is on Android? I can't seem to find "WiFi Analyser" or "WiFi Analyzer" on the iTunes store.
Please advise . Thank you.
Thank you for responding so quickly, Jon!
To answer your question, yes - the Sonoff's are in the same house. But how do I determine if it is on the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band? There isn't a way for me to switch this either on my iOS' wifi settings or on the M5's app.
Thing is, I have set the M5 to "access point" mode as I could not use it in "router mode". In router mode, I'd need to have all my wifi devices on a different subnet.
I figured this might be a 2.4GHz / 5GHz issue but not sure how I can "force" the mobile device used to pair the T2 Sonoff via the 2.4GHz band.
Any additional advice you should share would be most appreciated. Thanks again, Jon!
Hello, for those of you who have managed to get it to work on a Deco M5 network, please do share the steps. I still can't connect to mine.
I've got an AirTies mesh and something similar :
Basics connect just find - but the POWs won't, as the give an error 'Won't work on 5Ghz network'. Makes no sense as the network is both and the Basics work.
So we have the issue with :
