Extend ZigBee channel range

I have a Sylvania smart sensor on my door downstairs the problem is my USB coordinator is upstairs and is just barely out of range of the sensor. They use ZigBee to communiate with eachother and I heard other plugged ZigBee devices repeat the signal, so I was wondering if this device would count or not and if it would repeat and extend the range of my ZigBee signal. This Device

Theoretically every mains powered device should extend the zigbee network. The Sylvania Plugs are rebranded/similar to the the ones from Osram in Europe if I’m right. Those have been known to behave strangely and dont work so well for extending the range but it might be a different story for the Sylvania Plugs. But Principally the answer is yes.
