Unable to pair Aqara P2 and SkyConnect

Hi All,

I am running Home Assistant supervisor via docker on a Debian Bookworm based X86 box. I have setup Open Thread Border router and skyconnect however I can’t seem to pair the Aqara P2 sensor.

I have tried a few of the things mentioned on the forum, none have worked.
I have noticed I cannot get disable the OTBR firewall setting. If I do so I get the following error.

When I attempt to pair the device I get the following logs

Done

I have tried both the OTBR addon and the si_labs multiprotocol addon. Neither have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It might have paired somewhere else already,
Not a matter user, but this is a thing where they pair once with the barcode and then you have to share them or transfer them around or some weirdness.

I don’t have any Matter yet.

Press and hold the button on it until it flashes pink once to reset it then power cycle your network and the vm and power cycle your phone then you should be able to connect it to the HA instance you have.

If you already have it linked to another service then you need to unlink it first or use the share function as you can only pair a matter device to a single primary hub/host at any given time and share it out from there to allow synced use between them.

I did this, same result.

What are you using to commission the Aqara? If you are using iOS HA Companion App, that won’t work, you’ll need Android HA Companion App.

BTW, those “Failed to update ipsets” are fairly common.

@wmaker Android galaxy s22+ specifically.

OK, that’s good. Anyway here is a writeup I did last year (I did it then on Multiprotocol, but now I’m using OTBR). There wasn’t anything in particular I did, it just happen to commission without much of a problem

What are you trying to share from where you have it setup first?

Thanks, I did come across that post at one point in my search for an answer.

Out of curiosity what firmware are you running? I setup the multiprotocol option. Now I can’t seem to flash the firmware from the web tool and the device to HA only shows as /dev/serial/by-id/usb-Nabu_Casa_SkyConnect_v1.0_80abc3cea296ed11b893c898a7669f5d-if00-port0
it doesn’t show as /dev/ttyUSB0 which I can see in the OS if I ssh into the box.

I haven’t yet looked at flashing the firmware from CLI yet to see if that helps.

My skyconnect is as of this reply as follows:

/dev/serial/by-id/usb-Nabu_Casa_SkyConnect_v1.0_b8db9e7b7867ed11938655d05720eef3-if00-port0

I have also added an automation in the last few days to reload the silicon labs multiprotocol core addon after a switchbot turns off then on the usb hub port I have the skyconnect plugged into when my instance is restarted just to make sure everything loads up properly.

For reference as well here are the settings in my instance at this time

Its not sharing, I only have one Thread border router, my HA server with Skyconnect. I have factory reset the Aqara P2 and rebooted the server many times. All times the Android HA app gets stuck at ‘checking network connectivity’ and the server addon logs just show similar to my last set of logs.

Did you restart the phone?

eidt: I had 3 more delivered today which were detected and connected as they should once hitting add device on the popup then picking home assistant in the other app list.

I recommend switching to OTBR instead of Multiprotocol, because Multiprotocol has been put on the shelf by the developers.
