One word of note, This Integration removes cloud control for the locks from the wyze application
You can still locally control the locks with bluetooth in the app as usual
I’m not quite sure how I feel about this little quirk, it’s good because as much as I like wyze, I hate cloud control. but on the other hand, it was nice having it.
Hello From Wisconsin!
I’d love to go through the step by step guide on how to integrate the Wyze Locks into home assistant.
But I fear this post / guide will be a disappointment, as it was honestly super easy to do.
Requirements for integration
- Home Assistant with working ZHA integration
- ZHA working as expected
- A network of active zigbee devices as the wyze locks are end-point devices, and do not repeat the signal, having an extender / repeater to completely mesh the lock is advisable. For instance, my raspbee2 on my rpi4b, can reach it, but it gets a much better connection doing a couple hops and meshing it instead of directly connecting to it. information on zigbee networking
Steps to integrate the wyze lock into home assistant
- Install lock(s?) in door (duh) (you can use the same bridge for more the one lock, but note above the signal quality constraints.)
- Pair lock and claim lock in the wyze app as normal, set it up entirely. Also set up your pin pads at this point. Essentially, get it working as expected without home assistant, using only the wyze app.
- Once the lock is functional, and keypads are paired, everything is good?
- Set your zigbee coordinator into pairing/acceptance mode
- Press the pair button on the Wyze lock (one at a time, you can pair more then one lock, to the same coordinator or wyze lock bridge)
- Magically, Zha will find it. I’m not sure how, but after about a minute, maybe 2, the ZHA handler coordinator finds my wyze locks.
- Rename them (they show up as ford locks)
- Enjoy your wyze locks in hass.
