MQTT discovery #

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 and will_message is not required anymore for Home Assistant 0.113 >=
  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.

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 three Home Assistant configurations.

MQTT device trigger is the recommended way to respond to button clicks. Note that it atleast requires Home Assistant 0.106.0.

The MQTT device triggers are discovered by Zigbee2MQTT once the event is triggered on the device once.

automation:
  - alias: Respond to button click
    trigger:
    - device_id: ad44cabee4c646f493814306aa6446e1
      discovery_id: 0x000b57fffecb472d action_arrow_left_click
      domain: mqtt
      platform: device
      subtype: arrow_left_click
      type: action
    action:
      entity_id: light.my_bulb_light
      service: light.toggle

If you only plan to use this and want to disable the Via Home Assistant entity integration below, set homeassistant_legacy_triggers: false (see Configuration for more info).

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. With the configuration below, grouped devices in Zigbee2MQTT will be exposed as a single device in Home Assistant. The following example will show you how to add a group of lights to Home Assistant. It has to be added to the Home Assistant configuration.yaml.

light:
  - platform: mqtt
    schema: json
    name: MY_GROUP_NAME
    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

Exposing switch as a light #

If your device is currently discovered as a switch and you want to discover it as a light, the following config in the Zigbee2MQTT configuration.yaml can be used:

devices:
  "0x12345678":
    friendly_name: my_switch
    homeassistant:
      switch:
        type: light
        object_id: light
        name: my_switch
      # OR if your devices has multiple endpoints (e.g. left/right)
      switch_left:
        type: light
        object_id: light_left
        name: my_switch_left
      switch_right:
        type: light
        object_id: light_right
        name: my_switch_right

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:
