MQTT discovery

At least Home Assistant >= 0.84 is required!

NOTE: Groups are not auto-discovered, see configuration below.

The easiest way to integrate Zigbee2mqtt with Home Assistant is by using MQTT discovery. This allows Zigbee2mqtt to automatically add devices to Home Assistant.

To achieve the best possible integration (including MQTT discovery):

mqtt:
  discovery: true
  broker: [YOUR MQTT BROKER]  # Remove if you want to use builtin-in MQTT broker
  birth_message:
    topic: 'hass/status'
    payload: 'online'
  will_message:
    topic: 'hass/status'
    payload: 'offline'

Mind you that if you want to use the embedded broker of Home Assistant you have to follow this guide.

Zigbee2mqtt is expecting Home Assistant to send it’s birth/will messages to hass/status. Be sure to add this to your configuration.yaml if you want Zigbee2mqtt to resend the cached values when Home Assistant restarts

Home Assistant device registry

When using Home Assistant MQTT discovery, Zigbee2mqtt integrates with the Home Assistant device registry. This allows you to change the Home Assistant device_id and friendly_name from the web interface without having to restart Home Assistant. It also makes it possible to show which entities belong to which device.

Device registry

Customizing discovery

The device specifc configuration allows you to modify the discovery payload. Here you can also prevent a device from being discovered. See Device specific configuration for the available options.

I’m confused about the different device IDs, names and friendly names

Responding to button clicks

To respond to button clicks (e.g. WXKG01LM) you can use one of the following two Home Assistant configurations.

Via Home Assistant entity

automation:
  - alias: Respond to button click
    trigger:
      platform: state
      entity_id: sensor.my_switch_click
      to: 'single'
    action:
      entity_id: light.my_bulb_light
      service: light.toggle

Via MQTT

As an alternative to the above way of integrating, you can also listen to MQTT topics.

automation:
  - alias: Respond to button clicks
    trigger:
      platform: mqtt
      topic: 'zigbee2mqtt/<FRIENDLY_NAME'
    condition:
      condition: template
      value_template: '{{ "single" == trigger.payload_json.click }}'
    action:
      entity_id: light.bedroom
      service: light.toggle

Groups

Groups are not auto-discovered. Use the following configuration:

- platform: mqtt
  schema: json
  name: MY_GROUP
  command_topic: "zigbee2mqtt/[GROUP_FRIENDLY_NAME]/set"
  state_topic: "zigbee2mqtt/[GROUP_FRIENDLY_NAME]"

  // Modify according to features supported by all devices in group
  color_temp: true
  brightness: true
  rgb: true

Controlling Zigbee2mqtt via Home Assistant

The following Home Assistant configuration allows you to control Zigbee2mqtt from Home Assistant.

You can add it to the appropriate section of your configuration.yaml, or you can add it as a Home Assistant Package by adding the following to zigbee2mqtt.yaml in your packages folder.

# Input select for Zigbee2mqtt debug level
input_select:
  zigbee2mqtt_log_level:
