Happy New Year everyone!
I got a brand new Aqara Camera Hub G3 and the core “Xiaomi Gateway (Aqara)” integration can’t find it. Neither with “any” in “Network interface to use” nor with the IP address of my Raspberry Pi 4 running HA, nor with the IP address of the G3 Camera Hub entered in the “IP address (optional)” field, nor with all three fields filled out, including the MAC address of the G3 hub.
I always get the red “Invalid hostname or IP address” error message from the integration setup.
In the HA log I get these error messages:
Logger: xiaomi_gateway Source: /usr/local/lib/python3.10/site-packages/xiaomi_gateway/__init__.py:482 First occurred: 12:55:18 (2 occurrences) Last logged: 13:04:39 No data in response from hub None
Logger: xiaomi_gateway Source: /usr/local/lib/python3.10/site-packages/xiaomi_gateway/__init__.py:375 First occurred: 12:55:18 (12 occurrences) Last logged: 13:05:29 Cannot connect to gateway 54........41
(MAC address redacted)
The firmware version of my G3 Hub is the latest available as of today, 3.4.8_0003.0004.
I read somewhere else here in the community forum that the hub might be discoverable only a short time after powering up so I tried to add the device via the above mentioned integration directly after a cold reboot – to no avail.
I can’t find any issues on GitHub for this integration related to “G3”.
The official documentation of this integration doesn’t talk about the G3 Hub, maybe because it’s rather new?
Also, this G3 Camera Hub can’t be added to the Mi Home App (yet). So there seems to be no way to follow the troubleshooting tips in the official integration documentation.
So I give up. The G3 Aqara Hub doesn’t seem to be supported from the core integration, right?
There is a HACS integration that claims to be working for the G3 hub but I have yet to test it.
