I dropped my Homey two weeks ago whilst putting it into recovery mode and it split in two!
The top half came off, all the screws are broken, the RFID pins are bent and the Zigbee antenna connector wire broke.
I don’t really need the RFID so I didn’t connect it back, also because I don’t know which side of the connector is plus and which one is minus.
What I do need is Zigbee range. I tried reconnecting the wire but I don’t really have the correct tools to do that. I managed to pry open the connector, put the wire back in and soldered the outler layer onto the connector again but my Zigbee range is now terrible so I don’t think I fixed it properly.
I’ve contacted Athom support to see if there are replacement parts available but there aren’t
They can fix it themselves, but I’m still waiting to hear if that means my config will be gone.
If that’s the case I would rather not send it until one of the next updates brings the config backup.
Does anyone have an idea on how to fix my Zigbee antenna?
Or does anyone perhaps have a broken Homey and no more use of the Zigbee antenna?
The antenna will probably be fine, but I most likely damaged the connector whilst trying to resolder the wire.
