I have an R pi3 which I have installed the gateway on. I was interested in using the gateway because i wanted my smart plugs to not be talking to a third party server all the time.
I have 4 Meross MSS310 smart plugs that I want to add to the gateway but it can only detect them if I have already added them to the network through the meross app which naturally means they are connected to their cloud server.
If i remove them in the app then the gateway can no longer detect them.
Is this correct because I thought the gateway was supposed to work without the need for a third party app or connecting to the cloud?
