These devices report power, at least the double rocker w/neutral does. Your DTH should include that capability if the new single rocker supports power. It’s Cluster ID 0B04/0702, which is in the raw description you posted above.
I believe the new Aqara single rocker should also work with ST’s stock DTH called “ZigBee Switch Power”, but I have not tested that. If so, then this device will be local to the hub and not require a custom handler.
Here’s the DTH I’ve already published for the double rocker. It has the power attribute, as well as the child devices. Works in both the Classic and new app.
This dth is integrates many switches released in Korea.
Some Korean or Chinese compny’s simgle rocker switches registed as ‘Thing’, forcing users to change dth directly to a ‘zignee switch’.
And since Korean light switches use up to six rocker, so it is made to automatically register 1~6 rocker dth once it is registered.
As you said, the Aqara single rocker switch does not have to install a separate dth, but for the reason described it was induced to install in the video.
and I’ll try the ‘zigbee switch power’ dth.
Hi @OhJungTae, that makes sense if you want to use just 1 DTH for any combination of rockers. Based on the raw description from your first post, that switch supports power reporting, so you might want to add that capability for ST users.
FYI @OhJungTae , I’v updated my DTH for the double rocker to include cluster 0702, which is accumulated energy (kWh) since the device was first joined to a hub. You can NOT reset this kWh value without completely factory resetting the device (which means losing everything and rejoining). More detail here:
That’s a super old DTH of mine, so I wouldn’t use it.
I don’t have that particular switch, but it should join as a Thing using either mobile app. Personally I’d use the Classic app, but both should work. It is a finicky device, so start the join process on the app and then tap on the switch. If it still won’t join, try a factory reset and try again.
Once it joins, you can change the DTH (Type field) to ST’s stock DTH called Zigbee Switch or Zigbee Switch Power, or one of the others you’ve mentioned above.
Hopefully someone who has one of these can chime in with more advice.
Thanks for the quick response! Currently (still) searching with Classic app.
I’m trying to learn about the catchall method but I’m not having much luck in how it’s used (total noob here). Do I somehow enable it on SmartThings, or is it a git code I’m looking for?
Previously reset hub after failing to pair with various DTHs; aqara switch is not registering, even with “thing” on SmartThings classic search. I also tried starting the search first, and then holding down the switch button to trigger pairing mode, but no go.
I also have a DTH written for the double rocker, which also supports displaying power (active watts), as well as energy (kWh) since reset, as well as the capability to reset while saving total kWh since installed (as a device state variable). Booung should probably update their DTH for those capabilities in case an ST user wants to use that in Automations or SmartApps.
My switch goes into (what I’m assuming is) pairing mode: I get a blue light flashing and the physical switch becomes non-functional.
Oddly enough, I was able to pair the Temp/Humidity sensor just now (using @johnconstantelo’s code, as it was the most up-to-date one I could find for that device). Now I’m wondering if the switch is somehow defective…
EDIT: not sure why I didn’t think to bring this up earlier or whether it’s at all pertinent, but the switch does not leave pairing mode; I have to reset the breakers in order to regain ‘dumb’ switch functionality.
I know its been since June since anyone said anything but i just used the DTH from the above video for the WS-USC01(No Neutral , Single Rocker) and it work perfectly no issue. Thanks for the post and DTH
