Notes #

Pairing #

Press the button on the device 4 times (until the red light turns on).

Binding #

If you want to bind this remote directly to a group or light, bind cluster LevelCtrl only (not LevelCtrl and OnOff). If both clusters are bound, a click on the remote toggles the bound group or light twice, thus neither turning it on or off. Cluster-specific binding is most easily done in the frontend.

Legacy integration #

By default (for backwards compatibility purposes) the legacy integration is enabled. For new users it is recommended to disable this as it has several fundamental problems. To disable the legacy integration add the following to your configuration.yaml:

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_remote
    legacy: false

The information below only applies to the legacy integration.

Recommendation #

This device sends multiple messages in short time period with the same payload. It’s worth setting debounce option with debounce_ignore: - action to throttle them without losing unique action payloads.

E.g. (devices.yaml)

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_remote
    debounce: 0.5
    debounce_ignore:
    - action

To find optimal “smoothness” play with debounce time or if you need all unique rotation steps consider adding brightness to debounce_ignore option

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_remote
    debounce: 0.1
    debounce_ignore:
    - action
    - brightness

Device type specific configuration #

How to use device type specific configuration

simulated_brightness:
  delta: 20 # delta per interval, default = 20
  interval: 200 # interval in milliseconds, default = 200

OTA updates #

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

Exposes #

Battery (numeric) #

Remaining battery in %. Value can be found in the published state on the battery property. It’s not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. The minimal value is 0 and the maximum value is 100. The unit of this value is %.

Action (enum) #

Triggered action (e.g. a button click). Value can be found in the published state on the action property. It’s not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. The possible values are: brightness_move_up, brightness_move_down, brightness_stop, toggle, brightness_step_up, brightness_step_down.

Linkquality (numeric) #

Link quality (signal strength). Value can be found in the published state on the linkquality property. It’s not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. The minimal value is 0 and the maximum value is 255. The unit of this value is lqi.

Manual Home Assistant configuration #

Although Home Assistant integration through MQTT discovery is preferred, manual integration is possible with the following configuration:

  - platform: "mqtt"
    state_topic: "zigbee2mqtt/<FRIENDLY_NAME>"
    availability_topic: "zigbee2mqtt/bridge/state"
    value_template: "{{ value_json.battery }}"
    unit_of_measurement: "%"
    device_class: "battery"

    icon: "mdi:gesture-double-tap"
