Half of my sensors are aqara/xiaomi and I am pretty pleased with them. But I get errors on connecting to hub every day.
It disconnects for 2,3 minutes every day (sometimes mote than once). It screws up my automation and really annoys. Not really sure where is the issue, because connection is lost because wi fi is lost. Maybe it is because of the frequencies (2.4 on wi fi and 2.4 on zigbee). And I even tried to change channels on router.
I have read that zigbee2mqtt is a good solution. Today is a second day of me trying to connect all devices. And, as I wrote on main topic, I can connect some devices but can’t others (same sensors…)
Here is my first question. As I do not use another zigbee devices I can use something else than zigbee2mqtt for my xiaomi/awara. Would you suggest me anything? Like zigate or smth like that?
And my second point is that I will be totally fine if xiaomi hub woild work fine. And as I know, integration with Home Assistant is not so official. When xiaomi wil stop showing key in app - we are going to be in trouble. Are there any thoughts to get official integration? I am hoping that xiaomi will make their product more stable (or the issue still is in my router?)
I do not really like zigbee becuase of 2.4 ghz, but aqara switches are the only once which can work without neutral, and xiaomi sensors are really good, in some cases even better than fibaro.
