This is my first voyage to Smart Home and I am at my wits’ end. I have purchased Conbee 2, Aqara EU Smart Plug (SP-EUC01) and Aqara Double Key Wireless Switch (WXKG17LM) and both appear to be broken each in a different way?
I’ve set up HA on an old notebook, installed Mosquito Broker and Zigbee2MQTT and managed to pair both… Kind of? They appear in Zigbee2MQTT but each has their own issues.
SP-EUC01 Never seems to send a response. I can send Off and On messages, but if I hit Reconfigure or try to refresh status at some point later I get an error notification that no response was sent. Also the devices is constantly displayed as Disabled and does not show power usage.
WXKG17LM I don’t seem to be able to add an automation to it. Action sensor is visible in Device information, but when I try to add an automation the only option I have is use battery level. I also installed blueprints from here, but using the blueprint doesn’t seem to work. No traces get registered when I click the physical switch ever.
What I am trying to achieve is for pressing one of the buttons on the switch will toggle the smart plug.
My last slither of hope is that I need to update the firmware in both, but I can’t even do that since registering to Aqara doesn’t send the verification email, and it’s not like I have an Aqara hub anyway. I bought those thinking that I’ll pay a bit more but at least will get a reliable piece of hardware from a known brand, but all I got was 4 hours of poking and prodding, getting no result and feeling I wasted money.
So, I don’t really know what to do next, how to troubleshoot it or what to try. I am an extreme newb so any help will be greatly appreciated.
I currently run HA from a pendrive on a Dell notebook, have Conbee 2 connected through a USB extension. HA version 2021.12.8.
Here is a list of the devices:
