Zigbee2mqtt: getting rid of your proprietary Zigbee bridges (Xiaomi, Hue, TRADFRI)


#1117

I had new button that would not pair, when i pull off the battery the multi meter displayed 2.7, after I changed i could pair it. The old battery went away, i could’ve been a good test to move around that old battery to test other paired buttons


#1118

Just for reference, using multiple hue bulbs and HA scene:

Thanks for your info, so 2.7 Volt will probably be lower limit. It would be interesting what the sensor would display just before non functioning, as the electronics inside the sensors probably have a good voltage measurement (as voltage is passed on in three decimals).


#1120

Which power plug can you recommend to me? My Xiaomi devices don’t seem to connect to my Osram Smart+ plug or Osram FLEX RGB. Is this a known problem? I don’t necessarily want to use a xiaomi power plug because it is not compatible with the sockets in my country.


#1121

IKEA plugs are working great!


#1122

Thank you. I also found this USB Plug which looks very promising.


#1123

Hi

Do I need a separate RPI to install this?

Can I use a PRI with Hassio installed?


#1124

No, you don’t need an rpi at all.

Yes

Read the docs


#1125

I tried several brands of plugs as routers with my Xiaomi sensors without success. I have not tried Ikea. I finally just added Xiaomi plugs along with adapters for USA, I don’t like the bulkiness that the adapter adds, but they work. Will try the Ikea plugs. @Skeletorjus is there a specific IKEA plug that you could specify (model #) which works with Xiaomi sensors?


#1126

There is only one availabe (for now), it’s called the IKEA Trådfri control outlet.
Additionally you can use Trådfri bulb(s) as router(s) for your zigbee network.


#1127

All, I run mine through docker.

docker run \
   --net=host \
   -it \
   -v /srv/data/apps/docker/zigbee2mqtt/data:/app/data \
   -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \

Is it normal to have to hold the button on the CC2531 to pair?

Whilst I did get some devices to pair, I am having all sorts of issues with the multiple zigbee smart plugs. Shortly after pairing the plugs, they report ON and OFF, as I expect but a few minutes later I do not get any updates from it, and eventually the plug just flashes red and clicking the button it doesnt get the MQTT message.
Anyone else having this issue?
I have now tried multiple CC2531 sticks, flashed with different programmers as well.


#1128

Shortly after pairing the plugs, they report ON and OFF, as I expect but a few minutes later I do not get any updates from it, and eventually the plug just flashes red and clicking the button it doesnt get the MQTT message.

I think this happened to me when I tried to pair the plug located at some distance from the coordinator. I brought the plug to the room where the coordinator is located, initiated the pairing the standard way (hold button on the plug for 5 seconds until the red light lights up for 1 second) and then switched the plug manually on and off ~10 times in a row, with 1-2 seconds in each state.

CC2531 takes more efforts to pair devices to.

One of my 2 Xiaomi plugs doesn’t report voltage though (while it reports power cosumption correctly, go figure).

I never used the button on the dongle to pair. It is too fragile, especially when plugged into the server (and hard to access in my case). Initially I set permit_join: true then, after I paired most of my devices, I set it to false and used a service to enable pairing, please see https://koenkk.github.io/zigbee2mqtt/integration/home_assistant.html


#1129

Hi, I just installed and configured the CC2531 with my Hassio v. 0.85.0
I configured it following instruction in https://github.com/danielwelch/hassio-zigbee2mqtt
I installed add-ons zigbee2mqtt and zigbee2mqtt-edge
but I receive since the first time this error:

Error while starting zigbee-shepherd, attemping to fix... (takes 60 seconds)

I resetted it pressing the reset button on the USB stick and rebooted Home Assistant many times… unsuccesfully


#1130

Thanks - I have the plug sitting within 2 foot of the stick. so strange. I dont get it.
I HAVE to use the button on the CC2531 - this is both CC2531s flashed via different programmers.
Tried for the last 30 mins without using the button on 2531 and it never pairs at all.
only common thing now is my docker/server.
I have no idea what to do now


#1131

Between this code is when it stops responding and sending to MQTT. Also when it stops responding I get a flick of the red led when the switch is on. Other plugs do the same thins so i am sure its not the plug being faulty (I have 3 of them).

#1132

I notice that the one listed on the zigbee2mqtt supported devices page is model e1603. I’m not sure for what country it is made, but the photo shows a different plug arrangement than the one I use in the US.

I see the one I linked below, but it doesn’t clarify that its Zigbee. I’m probably a little too apprehensive, but its just that I’ve tried a wide array of plugs unsuccessfully which is why I wanted to stop wasting money unless I was more certain it would work as a router.


#1133

Trådfri is IKEA’s zigbee line, so that’s the one.


#1134

I am migrating from HASSIO to Docker on a NUC. I have setup Mosquitto and Zigbee2Mqtt and moved all my configs across. I can see Zigbee2Mqtt is is connected to Mosquitto and posting updates for sensors but HomeAssistant is not discovering any devices.

This is my mqtt config in HA:

mqtt:
  broker: 192.168.1.34
  port: 1883
  client_id: home-assistant-1
  username: user
  password: password
  discovery: true
  discovery_prefix: homeassistant
  birth_message:
    topic: 'hass/status'
    payload: 'online'
  will_message:
    topic: 'hass/status'
    payload: 'offline'

Any recommendations?


#1135

Use mosquitto_sub to see what Z2M is sending.


#1136

Hi Nick,

Zigbee2Mqtt and Mosquitto are talking fine, the issue appears to be that HomeAssistant isnt sending or recieving anything except its birth and last will messages.
