I have HA installed on a Raspberry Pi 4, with a ConBee II installed with the DeConz integration. Phoscon (and DeConz?) is on version
2.09.03 / 23/12/2020. I have a few Aqara thermometers, an IKEA light and a couple of IKEA On/Off buttons connected, and they all work fine. Yesterday I bought an IKEA Shortcut Button, but could not get it connected immediately. After looking around, it seems like support for the IKEA Shortcut button was added to Phoscon app with beta version 2.9.0 (2020-12-24). Is there some way I can get on the beta version of DeConz with the HA integration?
I also found that some people had better luck with connecting it to ZHA. I have never tried ZHA, but figured I could try it. That did not work at all, because when I try to add the Zigbee Home Automation integration, it first asks for “serial port for Zigbee radio”. When I choose my ConBee II stick in the list (connected on /dev/ttyACM0) and click Submit, it spins for about 20 seconds, and then asks me to specify my Radio Type (I choose DeConz), and then a Serial device path (I enter the pretyped “/dev/serial/by-id/usb-dresden_elektronik_ingenieurtechnik_GmbH_ConBee_II_DEXXXXXXX-xxxx”). After that, I immediately get an “Failed to connect” error. Am I doing something wrong here?
And lastly I have noticed that, while Phoscon doesn’t seem to recognize the Shortcut Button, in the DeConz app I can actually see it. And while the other entities have nice names (and actually report temperature or a click), the Shortcut Button is named 0x2008, and nothing happens in the Developer Tools when I listen to the deconz_event. Is it already connected, and am I just missing a last step?
