Skyconnect MultiProtocol Timeout

Hey All,

I have setup some aqara sensors with skyconnect zha and it has been working without issues. I decided to enable multiprotocol and add my eve matter sensors and outlets to HA. The system worked for about a couple of days without issues. Was able to test out the automations.

Earlier today, when I realized that an automation didn’t run as scheduled; the zha integration was reporting errors.

“Failed to setup, will retry.”

The HA logs are showing the following errors/warnings:

2024-01-16 19:00:06.130 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.helpers.entity] Update for sensor.living_air_purifier_power fails

The above is repeated for all devices setup with matter/thread and zha. None of the devices are responding or reporting states correctly. Any thoughts on what is going on here?


Based on this post, I found that the “Silicon Labs Multiprotocol” Addon had crashed (stopped). I started it and the system is back up and running. I am going to keep an eye out for this to understand if this is a frequent issue because MultiProtocol support is in beta.

If it arises again, this post recommend switching to a thread only firmware for skyconnect and using a separate stick for zigbee.
