Philips Hue Tap Dial Switch - How to Pair Properly

Today I got my Philips Hue Tap Dial Switch since I saw on Database of Zigbee devices compatible with ZHA, Tasmota, Zigbee2MQTT, deCONZ, ZiGate and ioBroker that it should be compatible with Home Assistant.

So I follow the manual to pair it which says I should press the #1 button for 3s.
I have to separate my lights from power because otherwise it will directly connect to one of them.

Then I connected it to my ZHA coordinator.
The issue now is that in automations I can only see the bare minimum events.
“… battery level changed”
“… identify pressed”
“Device offline”
I expected to have the button and dial events available.

I reconnected it a couple of times which does not improve the situation.

When I listen to zha_event in the developer tools, I can get the buttons and dial events to show up.

Do I need to update something? I just installed my system ca. 6 weeks ago.

Thank you, I will keep watching progress and try how far I will come with raw zha_events.
