Issue between Sonoff Button and Aqara smart plug

Hello there, something that I’d define as one of the weirdest interactions has been happening to me.

I have an Aqara Smart Plug that I control with an Edge Driver I got from here, which is connected to a TV. I use it to measure when the TV is on for some automations.

At the same time, I have a Sonoff button, which, when pressed once, turns on/off a Smart Bulb connected to a Philips Hue bridge, and when pressed twice, turns on/off two different Smart Bulbs at once, also connected to the Hue Bridge.

However, when pressing once and only once, the Smart Bulbs turns on/off but at the same time it turns off/on the Smart Plug connected to the TV. There is no automation that would cause this to happen, they are in separate rooms (I’d say the farthest they could be actually) and I tried reconnecting both the bulb and the button several times.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what could be the cause, any guess?

Thanks in advance!

Zigbee groups will do this, and sometimes devices come with a pre-assigned group in their firmware. This is particularly true for devices, which are sometimes sold in a kit with a handheld remote but it can happen with anything.

It’s not always possible to permanently change the Zigbee group assigned to the device if it is part of the firmware. Can you give the exact models of your devices? Hopefully someone will know.

And here’s more discussion about zigbee groups and smartthings. This may not apply to the specific devices you have, though.

The button is a Sonoff SNZB-01. The smart plug is an Aqara SP-EUC01. I can’t remember the light bulb, but it should be a Warm white Innr iirc?

Does this only happen when the button is pressed? No issue if the Smart Bulb is turned on/off by other methods?

Correct. Only if the button is pressed, if I use Alexa or the ST app to turn on the bulb, nothing happens. Also, it doesn’t happen every single time, it seems random

Please tell me where you found the edge driver for the aqara plug. And which model is it? Thank you in advance! :slight_smile:

It was here in this forum, however there have been a few issues with it lately.
Anyway, this is the link:


There should be a thread here too, but I can’t seem to find it, if anyone does please feel free to link it!

Usually the quickest way to find custom edge drivers is to look on the quick browse lists in the community-created wiki. In this case, you can look on the list for “pocket sockets/smart plugs “. Then just look for the one with aqara in the title. :sunglasses:
