So I’ve had a Xiaomi Gateway with a few sensors and buttons for a while now, and it’s all going fine. However, it seems like every month or couple of weeks it will become unresponsive, flash lights at me and talk chinese. I’ll then need to mess around with it, probably attempting to connect to it in a few different ways before it will update the Gateway firmware, at which point I’ll need to re-enable the wifi protocol and copy the NEW access code into my config.yaml. I have had to do this at least 5 times already, and it’s really annoying. I’ve also been woken up by flashing lights and a computery chinese voice shouting at me. Last time this happened I pulled it from the wall in anger and I haven’t set it up again.
In an attempt to stop this behaviour and to interfere with Xiaomi tracking I’ve blocked the gateway from connecting to anything on the web - I think - but to no avail.
Please help me? Has anyone got this system set up and then NOT had to mess around with it constantly to keep it runnning?
Thanks for reading!
