Yolink sensors won't trigger automations?

I have several Yolink door sensors and Motion detectors. I have simple automations to turn on lignts (Shelly relays in switchboxes) and for the life of me I can’t get the yolink devices to trigger a simple automation. I have also tried using call service on the switches to no avail. Any suggestions?

What do the sensors look in in Developer Tools / States? Or do they just send events?

A standard binary_sensor will be 'on' or 'off' despite what the front end might say about open / closed. Safest way is to use a State Trigger (not a Device Trigger) using the entity (e.g. binary_sensor.front_door or some hideous alphanumeric identifier) and checking its state.

So are you saying you can’t read your sensors or operate your switches?!

See sections 9, 11, 13 and 14 of this:

FYI in 2024.1.4 and 2024.1.5 the Yolink integration is broken. Use 2024.1.3 (or the next version if that has the fix when it comes out)

Yup since I upgraded to 2024.1.5 my yolink motion sensor will show up in HA as “motion detected” but will not clear that status for 1/2 hr even when the yolink app shows the motion has stopped.

Thanks, I am new to HA with HA Green. I reverted to 2024.1.3 and they now work.
