The Zigbee spec defines the types of nodes: coordinators, routers, and end devices. I'm looking to buy some Zigbee devices, but I can't find in the device manual if the device is a Zigbee Router or an end device. Example device manual

How can I tell if a Zigbee device is a Zigbee Router? Can you provide an example of a device which is labeled as a Zigbee router?

In general, if it is connected to mains power, it’s a router, whereas if it is battery-powered it’s an end device. Not sure this is 100% true, but probably very close to it.

This page shows it is an FFD (full function device), so it can act as a router.
