I orderd a new Aqara Magic Cube - model MFKZQ01LM.
I added the Aquara App (version 0.8.0 by Ted Tolboom) to my Homey and selected the Cube from the list. I press install button in the app and wait until the app is ready for pairing and follow the instruction on the screen.
I press (and keep pressing) the button in the cube. The blue LED will light and will go off after 3 seconds. But no flashing led (2 or 3 times) or whatever. The LED is off and will stay off.
I removed the battery and reinserted it again but no change.
What is wrong? different model, wrong procedure?
Just installed the cube. I almost gave up, didn’t work, restarted Homey, still no result. After the 10th try suddenly it tried to connect but timed out. The 15th time it finally worked. No idea what is the issue, but just don’t give up trying
Did you get the flashing LED after pressing the button for a long time? I don’t see the two (or three) flashes when the blue LED goes off. I want to know if this is normal.
I also had some struggle. Aftera reset of the cube and restart of Homey, it worked.
Altså perhaps check the battery
I had troubles pairing my cube a year ago. It behaved quite similar to what I’ve read here. My cube turned out to be broken (solder missing on pin of battery holder), after some soldering I was able to (re)pair it.
Thanks for the hint, Kevin.
I checked mine and the soldering was quite well. And that was to be expected since the LED is blue for a few seconds when the button is pressed.
I paired my new Aquara Cube (2pcs) without any problem.
I’m facing the exact same problem I suppose.
The soldering is correct.
I do not see a difference between the 3 sec press for linking and a 5 sec press for ‘reset’ (following the user-guidance that came along with the cube)
I did try it after rebooting both homey and resetting cube.
After 10 times still nothing.
I wonder how your lights blink when you try to link it, mine are as following:
I press the button for 3sec: I get 3 led blinks (of which 2 slow and the third fast after)
the I keep clicking once (not holding onto) the button once every 2 seconds.
When I press it it blinks and then I can wait 1-2 sec and it will blink again without me clicking.
So it isn’t doing what it is doing in the following video:
Did any of you get that kind of triple blinking after the first 3 blinks?
Don’t understand why it ain’t pairing as simple like this haha:
Mine isn’t blinking after the first reset of 3 seconds. I ordered another one from RobbShop which has the same symptoms.
When I press the reset button (and keep pressing it) until the blue LED will go off, nothing happens. No 3 blinks! I press the button every 1-2 seconds and the LED lights a few milli-seconds but no response in the App. Finally, the pairing gives a timeout.
It isn’t as easy as it seems on the video from Homey.
Have you measured the voltage from the battery? It should at least be 3V. See [HOW TO] Measure batteries on faltering battery powered devices! for details. And the initial foil / plastic slip around the battery has been removed right?
Thanks for the suggestion. I checked the battery and it has 2.830 volts.
There is no foil around the battery since the Box showed a blue LED when I push the reset button.
And I replaced the battery for a new one with 2.9 Volts, and now I am getting the situation the LED is flashing 2 times after the long reset press. I think this is the solution!
I had the same problem. After a reset of my Homey Pro it works without any problem
After the homey update to v5 the cube could connect.
