Aqara & Xiaomi Smart Home - Zigbee App (v1.4.1 - TEST: v1.4.2)

Thanks for your feedback, and I totally agree with you. Other Aqara-sensors works fine, well, most of them, so I don’t believe the app is the main issue. To be honest, I have not changed the battery, it is a pretty newly purchased device. Yes, I do know that the battery might be low on power even if it is new to me, but it works flawlessy most of the time, but not solid enough to replace the 433 mhz remote I currently using.
At this point I am open for everything. I have tried to reconnect it to force it to pair again, I have removed the device and paired it again, I have changed the channel that the 2.4 band of my wifi operats on, I have moved one AP to reduce the risk of interference etc etc.
I will change the battery as well now, just to check that off the board too.

@TedTolboom thanks for great app. Is it possible to add an update intervall setting in the zigbee xiaomi light sensor 3.0? The sensor updates contiuously during day, but would rather want e.g every 5 min.

Best regards

Thanks for the link. Apparently there are more people with the same experience.

I will add a link to my post there as well and inform Homey.


I have send them an email also and see what reply they will give.

@TedTolboom Ted just in case, even seems you are not responding anymore… 2 out of 4 Smoke sensors (lumi.sensor_smoke) seems to silently not working…Zigbee routes are fine, I’m even able to do the interview, even it takes like 10 mins… any idea what is going on ?

I think alot of battery operated sensors going silent at the moment. There are several topics at the moment with almost the same behavior. The sensor is in the network but data is not send or received any more. Only removing and re-adding well give a “alive,” sensor back in the network. But after some time they could go silent again.

I think we are all looking at the wrong place i.e battery, wifi interference etc etc. I don’t think it is a app issue also but mostly a ZigBee-core issue


Well that would not explain the fact it’s still responding to interview, while btw the two others have even older batteries of same time.

Interviews are active (initiated by Homey), updates are passive (initiated by the device). Sounds like two different code paths.

Can you add support for AAQS-S01 (TVOC, Humidity and temperature) sensor please?

Yet in case of battery dying or is dead, device would not respond to the “Homey” call, or I’m wrong ? Btw, I found out some other sensor being offline for 2 months (Xiaomi Door Sensor) - all looks right but I had to “revive” that sensor by pairing it again…suddenly it’s working again. So “maybe” there is still something broken in Homey…

I would very much like this TVOC sensor to be supported too!
Perhaps the community members who would like that too could all donate some, so @TedTolboom can buy one? I’d be happy to contribute too.
It’ll be great to have one in every room to show air temperature, humidity and quality at a glance.

Something else: the version numbering in the topic name isn’t correct anymore.Perhaps we don’t need a version number there too, so it wouldn’t need maintaining… :slight_smile:

Hi there. I bought a sensor Aqara TVOC can I expect support for it?


I’m testing the Xiaomi/Honeywell Smoke detectors (JTYL-GD-01LM/BW). They should be supported but i can’t add them/it won’t find them. I got the Zigbee variant and can added them to de Xiaomi Hub.

Is the chinees version not supported?

Ik heb hem inmiddels aan de slag. De truc zit hem dat je het knopje lang ingedrukt moet houden tot de piep komt en dit 3x moet doen.

Dus snel 3x achter elkaar indrukken werk niet.

Today I received my Aqara wireless remote switch H1 double rocker but it is unsupported at the moment.
It will only be added as a unknown device.

Can this new switch please be added so it will be useable?


Quick question - if I buy the Aqara gateway is there any way to connect zigbee devices to that and have them recognised within Homey? I don’t see it mentioned in the supported devices but sure it used to be…

Having issues with my zigbee on Homey so looking for alternatives to resetting my zigbee associations

Yes, the gateway shows it’s paired devices to Homey. That’s what I have working myself.

Not all Xiaomi gateway work! Depends on version and firmware.

Here you see xiaomi devices paired to the xiaomi gateway and controlleable via Homey.

Ah thanks - looks like it’s a different app which is why I was missing it!
Any ideas which gateway is safest to buy?

If you mean MiJia Honeywell Smoke Detector White, it is supported. I hope you are on latest 1.2.5 version and Homey v7, right ? Just press the button 3 times, shortly after, if I recall well.
