I have been trying to integrate the Xiaomi DJT11LM vibration sensor with little success. I have paired one device a couple of times but get no response from any movement or vibration. I have had no luck at all pairing a second device.
Of all the Xiaomi/Aqara devices I have, that’s the one I struggled with the most to get paired. Twice it acted like it was paired, but the logs showed zero communication after pairing. Third time it paired properly, and has been working fine ever since. My suggestion is to delete the device from IDE and keep trying.
If re-pairing the sensor still doesn’t work, it would help a lot to see what information is listed on the device details page for it, which can be found here: SmartThings Groovy IDE → Device List page → click the name of your Vibration Sensor in the Display Name column, and the scrolling down to Data / Raw Description, which should look like this:
Yes, I am using the classic app…
For sure I will move to the referenced thread as I am very involved in these devices and certainly enjoy working these things out. It will be a few days since I am currently out of town and away from the hub.
Thanks much for the reply.
Looking forward to a good resolution…
After a couple of "missed approaches " I was finally able to pair two of these to my Smartthings v2 hub. I have mounted one to the side of my mother’s mailbox so she will be notified of mail delivery. Works GREAT!
Thanks for a great contribution.
Yes. I figured out how to do it on the Hubitat Hub, though it’s not 100% reliable because of the strange way Aqara set it up in their hardware. I am working on porting that method to the SmartThings device handler (DTH).
The IDE tends to suggest it is communicating fine. It might be you just need to delete it from webCoRE and add it again.
I’m a bit vague because I thought for a tenner it was worth a look to see if I could find a use for it and I haven’t yet. I also don’t use the Classic app which makes it a bit more tedious to configure things like the open and closed positions.
Weird, it started to work after I pressed the reset button. I didn’t depress it long like when you perform an actual reset but a quick press to light up the blue light and now everything is working without any configuration changes. The Echo Speaks action to announce voice alert and push message that I had previously set are working well.
I still can’t see the vibration sensor listed under available physical device in webCORE smartapp but doesn’t matter now since Echo Speaks is handling that aspect for me.
