Stuck in "Starting Interview" state: Xiaomi Wireless switch (lumi.sensor_switch) via ZHA

Hi,
I’m totally a newbie with this type of technology… so I went the easiest path and used ZHA with ConBee II.

I see others seem to have success with the Mi Wireless Switch (WXKG01LM). For me, however, pairing them stays forever in the Device Found - Starting Interview state.

This is the log output from the web interface:

Can anyone help me with this, please? Any firmware to update? I’m running 2021.1.1 on Home Assistant OS. Other devices SONOFFs, as well as Xiaomi Smart Plug and Temperature Sensor work fine.

Thanks

Hello @stephenking!

Check this thread: ZHA - Xiaomi Mijia Wireless Button (WXKG01LM) Pairing issues
I also had issues with that hardware, easily solved with @BarTouZ tip! :smiley:
Try that, and report back hehe

Oh, wow! Thanks for pointing me to this! It indeed worked!

My previous search didn’t reveal that thread.

For me the button is not pairing. I keep seeing the Starting Interview screen. I press on the button during the pair, I see that my bridge is getting this data

Received frame on uninitialized device 00:15:8d:00:05:bd:b2:2d (Status.NEW) for endpoint: 1

But it never pairs.

Are you pressing it firmly enough so that you really press the pairing button? It took me also 2-3 pairing tries until it really worked.

Hi, I tried several times. It just won’t pair.
When I start the pair I see this in my logs, I see the lumi.sensor_switch:

[0xb47e] Uninitialized device command 'Command.Report_Attributes' args: [[Attribute(attrid=5, value=<TypeValue type=CharacterString, value=lumi.sensor_switch>)]]

Then I press the button several times with a few seconds interval. Every time I press the button I se a receiving message in the logs. I see different ones when I double/tripple or hold the button, so there is a communication. This response is my previous post. The value 2 on the last line corresponds to a double click.
Then there are these lines:

[0xb47e] Delivery error for seq # 0x27, on endpoint id 0 cluster 0x0002: message send failure
Tries remaining: 1
[0xb47e] Extending timeout for 0x29 request

and

[0xb47e] Requesting Node Descriptor failed
[0xb47e] Discovering endpoints
Tries remaining: 3
[0xb47e] Extending timeout for 0x2b request

It just won’t pair no matter how many times I pressed the button. For now, I skip this button and use an other.

Ohm I think I misread the post. I’m pressing the normal button during the pairing process. I now am thinking I should press the pairing button again…

Yes, exactly! Make sure that you see the LED blinking to confirm that you really presses the pairing button on the back.

I also can confirm, pushing the pair button solves this issue. Thanks!
