Homey and Zigbee is sometimes more magic than science, search this forum for the examples
Devices with software (in general) can be very picky how they’re shut down and/or how they started. When I’m working on my electrical systems I always make sure to shut down everything and start them in a certain order. For example I make sure my modem and router are up and running before starting Homey and my Synology NAS… The other way around is guaranteed trouble…
I always try to do it the proper way, but I can’t even shutdown Homey, so it’s just power off. And I can’t do anything with the sensors as far as I know (that’s not far) (can’t turn them off)
I readded them. I thought I had seen a “rebuild zigbee network” option somewhere, which did not reset the network like I did today. Am I mistaken?
Doesn’t it have a dipswitch of some kind? What does the manual say about reversing?
To illustrate : My tuya curtain chain drives have such a (tiny) switch on it, and additionally with a “reverse operation” option in the app config.
Again, one of my sensors is stuck (temp/hum/pressure are stuck since last night 19:45). I have removed the battery and put it back (Homey reports it on 100%) but it stays stuck. Also restarted Aqara app.
I don’t know if the sensor is not working or it’s the device in the homeyapp that has a problem.
tnx I will take a look at your link, but I already reset the zigbee network 2 days ago (see above) and readded all 9 devices (and fixed all flows). So this “network” is 2 day old
(My home is 5.x btw and I did not have zigbee devices before the update)
And I should not trust the battery percentage indicators? They are all 9 at 100%. I could try another battery of course the first time a sensor gets stuck
Do you have any routers in your zigbee mesh? Like light bulbs or plugs.
These aqara devices are all end devices and cannot create a healthy mesh network.
There is a maximum of end devices that can connect directly to Homey
No, I don’t. Do Aqara wall plugs function as a router/repeater?
I believe so since they describe that Aqara sensors communicate directly with the plug? can’t find any explicit specspage that says so https://www.aqara.com/eu/smart_outlet.html
“Even if the network connection is interrupted, the local automation between the smart plug and the sensors still works normally.”
Ted’s’ Aqara App supports both the ‘with neutral’ and the ‘without neutral’ version. Great!
Do these switches support multiple pressing a button (like the Opple devices)?
And, would it be possible to install the ‘with neutral’ version but nog connect the neutral? I am think about ordering these devices, but in order te keep all options open, I might as well get the ‘with neutral’ version, if these can also be fitted without a neutral.
Yes, just don’t expect it to work There’s a reason there is a specific “No Neutral Wire” device. Sometimes it does work the other way around, where a “no neutral wire” device also has an option to connect a neutral wire to it, but it doesn’t look like this Aqara device supports that.
Like Robert says. The chance of getting that to work is 0%.
If you have no neutral available, buy the “with no neutral” version.
Compared to the “with neutral” version, and then not connecting the neutral:
A lamp doesn’t work if you don’t connect the neutral wire.
