shortly i switched from the Philips Hue Bridge to the Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle.
My lamps are working and now i want to add my “Senic Friends of Hue” switches with the technology of EnOcean.
It should work, but my Zigbee2MQTT at Homeassistant don´t find that switches.
I deleted them from the Philips Hue app, that was enought to connect my lamps to MQTT, but it is not working with the switches.
Can someone of you help me in this case? Do i need to set the switches in a “pairing mode”? If yes, how can i do this?
However, they don’t work with ZHA at all. And even through the Hue integration connected to your bridge it only gives you 4 button functionality, whilst these are especially great for their both up/down action. If you press both buttons the Hue integration won’t even report an input.
I’m even in the process of switching from ZHA for that very reason. I love these things even though they have their weird quirks. Just being able to put them anywhere and not needing power ever is great.
Beware, they do need a Zigbee Green Power capable router device near like a Hue lightbulb connected to Zigbee2MQTT to pick up their messages.
I cant get the Seic switches to connect. I did the things mentioned on the z2mqqt website but it wont connect. in only have hue bulbs arround the house. There are hue bulbs 1 meter away from the switches but it still does not work. Can you explain how you did. it?
zigbee2mqtt works with that, but you need a compatible zigbee stick.
I use the ConBee II Zigbee USB Dongle.
The Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle does not work. (I’m running two zigbee2mqtt instances, one for each stick)
