Notes

Pairing

Pair the remote to Zigbee2MQTT by holding it close to the coordinator and pressing the inside button, next to the CR2032 battery, 4 times. The red light on the (front of the) remote will now flash a few times.

Troubleshooting: no battery level

It may help to remove the battery for a few seconds and after that reconfigure it via Configure. Right before executing the Configure make sure to wake up the device by pressing a button on it.

Binding

The binding functionallity of this remote varies per firmware version:

  • < 2.3.014: binding is not supported, OTA update your device to get binding functionallity
  • 2.3.014 - 2.3.74: suppports binding to groups only. It can only be bound to 1 group at a time. By default this remote is bound to the default bind group which you first have to unbind it from. This can be done by sending to zigbee2mqtt/bridge/request/device/unbind payload {"from": "DEVICE_FRIENDLY_NAME", "to": "default_bind_group"}. Wake up the device right before sending the commands by pressing a button on it.
  • 2.3.75 and greater : supports binding to devices only

Note: Prior to sending a 'bind' command using an MQTT message directly or through the frontend, push a button on the remote to wake it up. Otherwise, the remote will not be in a receiving state and the bind will fail with a general 'error'.

Once bound to a group/bulb you will notice that the toggle and brightness buttons will work, but scenes/color temperature most likely won't work. This appears to be a missing piece of functionality (discussionopen in new window), but via a workaround this can be managed;

  1. Create a group with ID 65289 (name it ie. Trafri_scenes) and add the device(s) you control with the remote.
  2. Add/store scenes for the created group
  3. Once you click left/right on the remote, the scenes will be called sequentially (should there be a device off sync in scenes, hold the toggle button for 3 sec.).

Toggle button

When clicking the middle (center) button on the remote it will send a {"click": "toggle"}, when holding it it will also send a {"click": "toggle_hold"}. It is not possible to skip the toggle when the button is hold. Also the remote won't send anything when the button is released. See linkopen in new window for more details.

OTA updates

This device supports OTA updates, for more information see OTA updates.
