First time posting in the forums so please forgive any mistakes, I hope I’m doing it right.
I’m kinda newbie with all home automation and things but I am a bit technical and can understand complex CLI instructions.
By adopting HASS I wanted to be in an open source environment and not cloud-dependant.
Here are a few informations I thought would be useful.
Raspberry pi 3+
Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus
No bluetooth, no wifi, both disabled on purpose
HASS OS 2023.1.7
MQTT with Mosquitto broker (I don’t know if it’s relevant)
I’m trying to make this switch work for 2 full days now, I don’t know what to try anymore.
So, I bought a legrand switch wireless “green power”, the 600085L.
HASS documentation says I need to register in the cloud service integration “Home Assistant Cloud Netatmo”. Which I did (despite not liking relying on a cloud service).
Then the documentation says I need “Legrand Home+ Control” which says “not configured, please follow documentation” that leads here.
Then it starts to get messy.
Documentation asks me to register to a dev API, now deprecated, following an obscure multiple subscription process (I felt the doc needs an update) and I should receive some informations by email, that I never received.
If I follow the switch installation documentation nothing is detected obviously. Maybe because I don’t have any wired netatmo stuff, or anything the documentation mentions, except the switch I bought.
I don’t know what to do anymore. So I have several questions, and I’d like some advices too
- Is this switch compatible with my installation? If so, what did I miss?
- Is there any scenario switch without wifi, preferably green powered (wireless, no battery), that works directly with HASS, without any cloud service required?
Honestly, I thought it would be easier to include a switch in my home automation. I don’t want to depends on a prorietary protocol, but damn that’s not for everyone.
Thank you for any form of help. I wish you a great day.
