Aqara P2 Motion Sensor Not Connecting to Thread Border Router


I just bought an Aqara P2 Motion Sensor and SkyConnect Dongle with thread border router enabled. However, when I try to add the sensor as a Matter device, I still get the error “Your device requires a thread border router”.

Am I missing steps? Help much appreciated.

I wrote up how I did this about a year ago (Note: I am no longer using Multiprotocol, I’m using OTBR)…

There are lot of things that can go wrong, so this writeup may not necessarily work for everyone.

Most likely you missed the manual Thread credentials sync necessary currently. Make sure to follow the steps outlined here: Thread - Home Assistant
