Notes #

Pairing #

Press and hold the reset button on the device for +- 5 seconds (until the blue light starts blinking). After this the device will automatically join. If this doesn’t work, try with a single short button press.

Troubleshooting: device stops sending messages/disconnects from network #

Since Xiaomi devices do not fully comply to the Zigbee standard, it sometimes happens that they disconnect from the network. Most of the times this happens because of the following reasons:

Device type specific configuration #

How to use device type specific configuration

Recommendation #

If the contact is being made via a horizontal slide (e.g. the sensor is placed at the top of a sliding door), the sensor may provide three or more messages with conflicting states. To get around this issue, consider using the debounce option in your device specific configuration.

E.g. (devices.yaml)

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_sensor
    debounce: 1

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 %.

Contact (binary) #

Indicates if the contact is closed (= true) or open (= false). Value can be found in the published state on the contact property. It’s not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. If value equals false contact is ON, if true OFF.

Temperature (numeric) #

Measured temperature value. Value can be found in the published state on the temperature property. It’s not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. The unit of this value is °C.

Voltage (numeric) #

Voltage of the battery in millivolts. Value can be found in the published state on the voltage property. It’s not possible to read (/get) or write (/set) this value. The unit of this value is mV.

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:
