I have a couple of Xaiomi devices (a door sensor and a temp sensor) that will not pair without using the catchall method. I’ve tried many times to get them to pair properly through the app but with no joy.
Catchall works fine and I can get them functional but after a period of time, ranging from a few hours to a few days they drop off the network and cant re-join. I have read that this is because the Zigbee ID is required for smooth re-joining to the network. I have also read that sometimes if the Zigbee ID field is left blank the device will auto-populate it at next check-in, so far this has not worked for me.
So is there a way to force the device to reveal the ZigbeeID? I read that sometimes it will be in the hub events log page in the IDE but I’ve never seen it.
