Some devices, sometimes, yes. But that’s not What’s been going on with Zigbee devices for the last two weeks. It’s a flaw in the hub firmware, which is causing the Zigbee radio to either change channel, lock up, or continually reboot.
The official suggestion is to try rebooting the hub, and that might make things work for another few hours, but then they can go bad again.
So if you run into that platform issue, there’s really nothing you can do except wait for smartthings to fix it.
Yes it’s the same in my case.
today the hub had blinking blue light many times and my devices of different brands and models went offline several times. all this after the hub firmware update. Not so good. Now some devices doesn’tn work well.
So I’ve got a brand new Aquara Leak Sensor. I get it to pair using edge driver but then it fails to get status. At one point it worked for showing leak/no leak. But now it just drops offline after pairing every time. Do I have a bad one? Or is this due to firmware?
So I exchanged my leak sensor and tried to pair it again after I changed zigbee channel to 20. It pairs okay and shows connected. But when I open, it says “Cannot get device status”. It will eventually go offline completely until I reset and repair. Not sure if this is related to other zigbee problems with ST, but I may just return it at this point.
Have you tried simply getting it wet to see if it reconnects?
Mine tend to show offline for most of the time, and then activate with the state change. When I first got them I was insanely testing them every couple of weeks before I got my comfort level up with the Aqara sleepiness
No. Unfortunately not. I repaired last night with the new one. It was showing leak/no leak just fine. Woke up to it offline. Soaked it… and nothing. sigh Guess I’ll return it and pay the premium for the Samsung ones…
Beginner question here. With the switch towards Edge drivers I’m trying to re-setup all my Aqara contact sensors. The steps I’ve taken so far were not enough to successfully connect any Aqara contact sensor yet:
deleted all old Aqara sensors from my Smartthings hub (in the app and in the online IDE)
deleted all Device Handlers and Smartapps from IDE
deleted all Ikea tradfri zigbee extenders (and physically turned them off)
Enroll to the channels where the Edge drivers are (Yakov and Veon)
Actually install drivers from those channels (this step I missed - while I was already trying to connect all the sensors many times)
Changed zigbee channel to 20
Tried pairing the contact sensors as per opening post description.
Late to the Church on this one. Interested in adding a few of the Aqara devices to my Smartthings V2 hub. Noticed that many are suggesting to change Zigbee to channel 20 or 25. Could someone please explain how to do this and what steps if any, need to be taken after that change is made. (Yep! I’m really a novice)
thanks in advance)
In the drivers list mentioned previously, I could not see a driver for the Aqara Vibration Sensor (DJT11LM). Can anyone tell me where to find it or what to use? If anyone has set this up could you please walk me through getting it set up? Someone suggested Zigbee Sensors Edge Driver [YG] but it is not in the Veon list of drivers. Where else can I find this?
