ORBI PRO SXS50 and Netgear Nighthawk AX8 router

I have the ORBI Satellites SXS50 that I am trying to get setup with my Netgear Nighthawk Router currently. Eventually, I am moving it to a Netgear Nighthawk WiFi extender and Verizon MiFi device.

What is the best way to get this established and then how to I check configurations via the phone app or computer. Currently the ORBI phone app (Android) won't pick up the Obri.

You only have the SXS50? Not the SXR50? 

Reason I ask is the SXS50 are the satellites. They need a compatible orbi pro router to connect to. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole

SXS50 is only compatible with SXR50. For App management, you need to use "Insight App" for Orbi Pro series.

The Insight App says it doesnt support the SXS50.
