Aqara vibration sensor orientation to trigger automation

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f326257e8d8> #<Tag:0x00007f326257e7e8>

Hey guys,
I’m pretty new to HA, I got a Aqara vibration senson and added it to my vacuum robot. I now want to trigger an automation when I close my robot after cleaning my dust bin. I tried to use the orientation value of the sensor in an automation, but it didn’t work. How can i get the second value (1) to trigger my automation?

Thank you!

I think the first thing you need to do is capture the events from the sensor using Developer Tools - Events, enter “zha_event” and press “Start Listening” and you should see something like this:

You can then use this information in an automation trigger and conditions as per the example below:

trigger:
  - event_data:
      device_ieee: '00:15:8d:00:04:77:6a:37'

    platform: event

  - choose:
      - conditions:
          - condition: template
            value_template: '{{ trigger.event.data.command in [''left_single''] }}'

      - conditions:

            value_template: '{{ trigger.event.data.command in [''left_long press''] }}'
        sequence:

I don’t have a vibration sensor so I could be wrong however there would be no harm trying the above.

try this

@lonebaggie Do I need to have the Aqara bridge for this? Because I connected my vibration sensor directly to my conbee II.

@Jonah1970 Sadly nothing happens when listening to zha_event.

OK, sorry it did not help.

Sorry yes my solution use the xiaomi hub

I found someone who got it to work. He uses the y angle to trigger. But sadly he doesn’t respond.


This is his code, I tried to adapt it, but I failed. Anyone got an idea how to make it work?

I added a sensor in my sensor.yaml. Now I get the three angles as own sensor.

    # Angle Sensor Roborock
        roborock_angle:
            value_template: "{{ state_attr('binary_sensor.vibration_1', 'orientation')}}"
            friendly_name: Angle Sensor Roborock
            unit_of_measurement: '°'
