NUE Home Bridge (Zigbee 3.0) Support


#21

Good work. I’m still hoping that I can achieve integration into HA without any more hubs using the CC2531 dongle only.

I have messaged Kevin from 3aSmartHome and he has said that he would look at this project in the new year, so that is good news, as I see there’s a lot of interest in getting this working here in Australia especially.

I’ve got a Nue wall switch to work with Raspbee bridge through their Phoscon app; seems to be working well so far!

Hi @Dredzed

Thanks for that, good to hear of more compatibility! Are you by chance any association with dresden-automatik that makes the Conbee dongles etc?

Have you had any luck getting the 3 gang switches to work?

How is using this interface better or worse than a CC2531 on its own? It seems that the Conbee and Raspbee devices might be using a different ZigBee radio?

Hi Lee_au
Sorry, no association with the manufacturers - I’ve only got into this home automation in the last 6 months or so, but loving it!
I’ve only got a 1 gang Nue wall switch, which I think I got to pair with Phoscon by searching for a light rather than a switch from memory.
I have no experience with CC2531, but happy to help with any (simple) questions about my Raspbee setup!


#25

Thanks Dredzed. If you are able to find the device handlers used for that witch, that may be useful perhaps? The single gang switch is the only version of the range that I don’t currently own, but it should be easiest to supprt once I get any of these others sorted ( likely with some more help!).


#26

Happy to help, but how do I find out the device handlers?


#27

I have few nue wall switches connected to the Hue bridge however I need to connect few of them as a two way. unfortunately the only way I know about how to do it is by using the scene switches but they are not recognized by the Hue bridge, only by the NUE bridge which is not supported by HA… anyone was able to connect them as two way and still be supported by HA?


#28

Hi Alex, I don’t know of anyone that’s done that yet but I have some of those scene switches that I will be looking at using in the same way once I get the normal switches into HA properly.

I do have the Nue hub, and know that once a scene switch is setup as a 2 way switch, even when the Nue hub is unplugged the scene switch still operates the other switch - therefore they seem to talk directly to one another even without a coordinator. This might help you perhaps.


#29

thank you very much. at the moment I am able to use 2 normal switches as a two way by connecting them as lights on the hue app and then using the following automation on HA:

  • alias: Turn on/off the upstairs lights when one of the relays/light is turned on/off
    trigger:
    platform: state
    entity_id:
    - light.onoff_light_1_2
    - light.onoff_light_3
    action:
    service_template: >
    {% if trigger.to_state.state == “on” %}
    homeassistant.turn_on
    {% elif trigger.to_state.state == “off” %}
    homeassistant.turn_off
    {% endif %}
    entity_id:
    - light.onoff_light_1_2
    - light.onoff_light_3

however, it has a huge delay (4-5 seconds).

Sorry I can’t include links, some restriction for new users on this forum.

I have achieved limited functionality for Kevin’s 3A Smart Home Smart Dimmer Switches and a Elelabs Zigbee Shield.

After following the pairing process as described in EZBPIS User Guide on how to use with Home Assistant, hassio detects the switches as light entities.

Sending turn-on and turn-off commands work, however the state of the LED on the switch does not change accordingly. Likewise, turning the switch on or off at the physical wall-switch, does not then reflect the new state back to hassio. Unfortunately this throws the state in hassio out of sync, which often renders switches in hassio useless as they need to be toggled multiple times to ensure the states are true and the lights are actually on/off.

I’ve exhausted my technical ability trying to resolve this issue - have any of you managed to get two-way communication working, or can point me in the right direction?
