Aqara door and window sensor T1

I have tried adding Aqara Door and Windows Sensor T1 to the ST Hub without success. It is listed as being supported natively. Any idea how to achieve this?

You can do it natively by stepping through the opening part then picking up from the FOR THE AQ SENSORS section below when prompted.

The following steps having worked reliably across 5 different installs for me.


  1. Add new device
  2. Press SCAN NEARBY button


  1. Get ANY AQ sensor and move it 1 or 2 inches from your Smartthings Hub.
  2. Hold in the small reset button it for 5 seconds. Sensor will blink blue light 3 times.
  3. If you have registered it before then you can put sensor down and it will pick up.
  4. I f you have not registered it before then after those 3 light blinks press button once every minute. (this is a last step)

Thanks. Done that already with the exception of Step 4 which seems to have done the trick. However, the Door and Window Sensor is detected as a switch. It shows the state (on and off) but cannot be used as a contact sensor in the Home Monitor (it says “no security sensors”). I’ve changed the driver to Mariano Shared Beta Driver and now it’s working fine.
