Add Hihome Smart Wi-Fi GEN.2 device

Since 2021, many Hihome devices are equipped with a GEN.2 chipset. In addition to WiFi, this chipset is equipped with a Bluetooth module. This Bluetooth module is intended for fast and virtually automatic pairing. However, it is necessary to have the Bluetooth function on the smartphone with which the pairing is initiated.

It is also essential that, at the time of pairing, the smartphone is connected to the same WiFi network as the target network for the device to be paired.
