Hi,

I made automation that checks updateable Zigbee devices from zigbee2mqtt bridge and asks you if you want to update them.


groups.yaml Place here all your zigbee2mqtt devices that can do OTA update
zigbee_updates:
  name: Zigbee device updates
  entities:
    - binary_sensor.0x000b57fffef2c3e6_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x842e14fffe416ac5_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x842e14fffefc7ffa_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x842e14fffe415c1e_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x842e14fffe415d7e_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x842e14fffe43aaf8_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x000d6ffffe54fd83_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x000b57fffeebd210_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x000b57fffed8366c_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x842e14fffe41729d_update_available
    - binary_sensor.0x000d6ffffe09fda2_update_available

Excelent project!
Thanks for sharing.

Interesting project. I am getting an error in - id: update_zigbeedevice

Invalid config for [automation]: Expected a dictionary @ data[‘action’][0][‘repeat’][‘sequence’][0][‘choose’][0][‘conditions’][0]. Got None. (See /config/configuration.yaml

I will work through fault finding but if you have any ideas please let me know. I am on HA Home Assistant 0.114.1

Cheers

Upgraded to Home Assistant 0.117.5 and no config error. Not fully tested updating yet, but over the first hurdle.

@gsmckenzie I’m on HA 0.177.2 and no config error. Update also works.
If you can, you can follow upgrading process over SSH with command:

mosquitto_sub -t zigbee2mqtt/#

I’m on HA 0.117.6 (and same for 0.117.5).

{{ expand(‘group.zigbee_updates’) | count }}

This template listens for the following state changed events:

  • Kohde : binary_sensor.0x680ae2fffe97ad47_update_available
  • Kohde : binary_sensor.0x680ae2fffea7e281_update_available
  • Kohde : binary_sensor.0xec1bbdfffe2de77b_update_available
  • Kohde : binary_sensor.0xec1bbdfffe8811cb_update_available
  • Kohde : binary_sensor.0xec1bbdfffe8812d5_update_available
  • Kohde : binary_sensor.0xec1bbdfffe9ebc14_update_available
  • Kohde : group.zigbee_updates

No config error but:

@mcpaha It seems that you havent setup a notification service.

I use html5 push notifications:

There are lot of different notifier services available, like discord.
