Did anyone have any luck getting this to work?
If i add it to Smartthings, it still just picks it up as a “Thing”. If i try to re-add, it still only ever detects as a “Thing”.
If i go to the IDE and change it to the Zemismart button, it only shows up 1 button with a heap of possible events (pressed, double pressed, held, standby, pressed 2 times, pressed 3 times, etc)
When i press the 1st button, nothing is registered as an event…
I’ve tried re-adding it many times but no luck. Nothing seems to be detected when i press any of the buttons.
What I seem to notice after buying 22 more switches… Is that the newer ones don’t work anymore for some reason. They come in as thing and when you give them the “type” for the switch config it just gives a long list of actions but doesn’t respond to it. When I deleted everything and started over the old switches immediately came in as the 4 way switch while the new ones still came in as thing.
how many total Zigbee devices do you have?
Of those, how many are mains powered?
Of those, how many are Sengled brand?
what model number is your hub?
when you deleted everything and went to add them back did you try adding one of the new switches early in that process, or did you just start with the old ones again?
I’m asking all of that because obviously there’s a possibility that something has changed with the new switches, they may have different firmware or whatever. But it’s also possible that you hit a max limit of some kind on your smartthings account. There are a couple that can affect you.
I’m afraid its waiting for a new device handler from the maker I’m messaging the shop where I bought it but they say they did not say it works so they don’t have to do anything. And I messaged zemismart but they don’t want to help because I didn’t order from them.
ive contacted Zemismart and they say these dont work with smartthings yet and they dont know if they will ever. tuya updated these and knowing tuya, it is probably an update to disable smartthings support, so you can only use it with there system.
That’s allowable under the Zigbee protocol as long as they describe the device as being “manufacturer proprietary.“
However, if they describe it as being certified for either a Zigbee 3.0 or zigbee Home Automation 1.2 (ZHA 1.2), then it has to work to the independent standard, regardless of what hub is being used.
Now whether smartthings has implemented all of the standard is a separate question. for example, smartthings has historically not been good with multi button devices, quite a few devices which work out of the box with other hubs need special code to work with smartthings.
Also, there’s a difference between buying some thing which is branded “Tuya” and something which was made by tuya for another company and sold under the other company’s brand name. At that point firmware changes might be made that would affect compatibility.
Tuya offers an integration for its own brand Devices with smartthings, but I don’t think they’ve included this particular device in that yet.
