Allowing devices to join
Before you start, make sure that
permit_join: true is set in your
configuration.yaml. Otherwise new devices cannot join the network!
It’s equally important that
permit_join: false is set in your
configuration.yaml after initial setup is done to keep your Zigbee network safe and to avoid accidental joining of other Zigbee devices.
First check if the device page (Supported devices, click on the model number) contains instructions on how to pair your device.
If no instructions are available, the device can probably be paired by factory resetting it.
Once you see something similar to below in the log your device is paired.
