Generic Tasmota MQTT Zigbee Coordinator Success

Heya, following on from my past about a year ago(on reddit), about this Zigbee Coordinator sold often on aliexpress as ‘Tasmota MQTT’ (

Sharing because before I bought it, no one really had an idea whether these can be used.

It’s been quite stable over the last year, and it is a cheaper alternative to the recommended adapters on the Zigbee2MQTT website. I also have the SZLB which is solid, but also more than 2x the price. I think I still prefer the SZLB one due to POE, but this is a good cheap alternative.

Figuring out how to get it working the first time was a pain in the butt, but it got alot easier from then onwards. All you need to do is connect it to your LAN, and then enter this in the console

backlog template {"NAME":"ZHA-bridge","GPIO":[0,0,5472,0,5504,0,0,0,5793,5792,320,544,5536,0,5600,0,0,0,0,5568,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,608,640,32,0,0,0,0,0],"FLAG":0,"BASE":1} ; module 0

backlog rule1 on system#boot do TCPStart 8888 endon ; rule1 1 ; tcpstart 8888

It is then available for use in Zigbee2MQTT and in ZHA (Even simultaneously) using

  port: tcp://ITSLOCALIP:8888
  adapter: ezsp

The seller sends alot of random information when asked about how to get it working with Zigbee2MQTT, 99% of which is completely useless. I hope this helps atleast one other person - I wish it was readily available when I was setting it up.
