Xiaomi Zigbee Door/Window Sensor, Motion Sensor, & Smart Button Device Type [beta]

@EICide @a4refillpad just created another Xiaomi DH. This time for the temp and humid sensor post on this is here [RELEASE] Xiaomi Sensors and Button (beta)

hello All,

I just got my first Xiaomi door sensor today. Having trouble decoding from the thread how to pair. Do I also need a Xiaomi plug? Could someone please list out the steps? I am not seeing in ST logs any debugs on the sensors

thank you

Manually add the contact sensor DTH from the post right above yours (here: [RELEASE] Xiaomi Sensors and Button (beta)). After that, go into add a device in the SmartThings app so it’s waiting to pair. Move within a foot or two of your hub, and use a pin to push the button on the sensor every second or so until it finally shows up in the app. Might take 10 seconds. Might take an hour. No rhyme or reason, but it should pair eventually. The battery reading won’t show up for awhile in the device UI in the app.

Note that I’ve had good results by pressing and holding for three seconds until it illuminates then pressing the butting repeatedly until it pairs.

I have jusr received one of these but it doesn’t want to pair.
Anyone else got one of these paired.
If so, is just by persevering with the button push.
{I’m talking about the humidity sensor btw}.
EDIT. Ah. Think I found how to do it. Post 745.
EDIT 2: That didn’t work. Blast…

You pair exactly how @brumster described in post 745.

Thanks @a4refillpad
I’m not seeing anything with ‘catchall’ in it.
I can see zwave start etc.
Sorry to labour the point but should I see something that says ‘catchall’?
EDIT: The catchall has appeared. Horay.
EDIT2: All configured and paired OK. Temp and humidity quick to react.
Great little device and more importantly, great DTH.
Thanks @a4refillpad for you work in providing DTH for all the Xiaomi range. Your a star.

Just an update, on the beta 17.10 and existing sensors are working ok (except for one that dropped a few days ago), but for the life of me I can’t get new sensors to connect. Not seeing a catchall in the IDE either.

Make sure you provide feedback to the beta folks about this. Hopefully we can prevent them from breaking these sensors by alerting them when the beta changes things.

I’m on the beta and have added 4 contacts with no issues…

Are you seeing the catchall? Not seeing them on any of my new sensors.

Yes, that’s the only method i use to add devices.

Interesting, let me try again this evening and see what happens.

I added a Temp sensor yesterday. Didn’t see a catchall at my first few attempts and gave up.
Then tried again and it appeared OK in the events.
Perhaps keep persevering.

I just use the method of clicking in a maniacal manner for a while then look in the hub event for the last catchall. Normally I see quite a few using this method and I pick the most recent one. For contact sensors it’s even easier to tell if it’s paired properly. If you put it close to the magnet and the led lights up then it’s an indication it’s not in a paired state. Time saving tip!

Just a headsup that Gearbest are running a promotion right now:
http://www.gearbest.com/xiaomi-_gear/c_11343/

I don’t know what countries this applies to so YMMV, worked for me from Sweden. I’ve ordered:
Xiaomi WXKG02LM Aqara Smart Light Control Wireless Version $23.02
Xiaomi Original WiFi Online Radio Capacitive Touch Support Timing Switch $25.18
Original Xiaomi Smart Human Body Sensor Size $17.78
Original Xiaomi Mi Smart Temperature and Humidity Sensor $8.09
Original Xiaomi Mi Smart Temperature and Humidity Sensor $12.99

Beware that they have some bundles: you order 1 product and can add another one at even lower price ($12,99 vs $8,09 for the temperature sensors)

(edit: spelling)

Ordered 17 door/window sensors yesterday to finish out my windows at home (and a few for some friends). :nerd:

Just got 3 more buttons yesterday. I only needed to press them once to see the catchall. I wonder if the last update has anything to do with that?
