Cc2531 setup

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f32608872c0>

I’m pretty new to all this and can’t figure out what to do.

I have a cc2531 stick, that I want to use with Home Assistant.
I have installed the zigbee2mqtt add-on and used the default configurations like here

I don’t really know what else to do, especially with the mqtt setup. What do I need to include in my configurations.yaml file and do I need to use mosquito broker or something similar.

Sorry for the noob question. I would really appreciate if someone could lead me in the right direction, as I’m a bit overwhelmed.

Thank you

If anyone has a similar problem.
I found a good, detailed guide to setup up zigbee2mqtt on hassio.


I Was looking for this. Much appreciated!

The documentation is very good

Hello, i have a issue with the setup as well. Ím not able to figure out the port of the stick. If I open dmesg i just get the following data:

3444.392942] usb 1-1.4: USB disconnect, device number 5
[ 3448.018587] usb 1-1.4: new full-speed USB device number 6 using dwc_otg
[ 3448.162697] usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=0451, idProduct=16ae
[ 3448.165380] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[ 3448.167982] usb 1-1.4: Product: CC2531 USB Dongle
[ 3448.170652] usb 1-1.4: Manufacturer: Texas Instruments

I get not path like /dev/ttyAMA0. Is it a wrong firmware on the stick? Or do i need to install a driver etc.!?

try the command lsusb

Thanks for this, saved me a lot of time searching.

I am having this issue, did you find a fix?
