OH3 IKEA Tradfri remote control with zigbee2mqtt

Hi,

I’m trying to set up an Ikea Tradfri Remote Control in OpenHab 3.
The remote control is connected via zigbee2mqtt. The corresponding entries appear in the zigbee2mqtt log files.

Feb 22 22:08:27 openhab npm[5401]: Zigbee2MQTT:info  2021-02-22 22:08:27: MQTT publish: topic 'zigbee2mqtt/schalterWohnEins/battery', payload '60'
Feb 22 22:08:27 openhab npm[5401]: Zigbee2MQTT:info  2021-02-22 22:08:27: MQTT publish: topic 'zigbee2mqtt/schalterWohnEins/action', payload 'toggle'
Feb 22 22:08:27 openhab npm[5401]: Zigbee2MQTT:info  2021-02-22 22:08:27: MQTT publish: topic 'zigbee2mqtt/schalterWohnEins/linkquality', payload '111'

An MQTT brocker is set up in OpenHab, with which a Tradfri socket is already controlled.
Unfortunately, I cannot set up the remote control.

How can I set up the remote control in OpenHab?

EDIT: Device Ikea E1524/1810

Can you link to the device from this page?

In the meantime, here’s an IKEA dimmer switch configuration, which uses almost identical parameters:

Sorry I forgot the link.

Could you elaborate on what your challenge is?
The usual progress would be to create your MQTT broker in OpenHAB and then create each MQTT device as extra thing with its respective channels.
I got multiple remotes (the normal one with only on/off/hold action, not the big one you linked, whereas concept is the same) working.

I have already set up an MQTT brocker. In addition, a generic MQTT thing for a socket.
My problem is how do I set up the remote control. How do I have to configure the thing and the channels? In the first step I want to switch the socket with the remote control.

I would recommend installing MQTT Explorer, and with that running press all the buttons on your remote and see what happens: this will tell you the correct topics, and what features your remote has. Once you have that, you can fill in the relevant fields in the Thing configuration.

The triggering of the buttons is transmitted via zigbee2mqtt/switchLight/action. The name of the button is in the message. At that point, however, I’m stuck.
How can I get a wireless socket on/off when I press a button?
All of the examples I’ve found so far relate to OpenHab 2.
I currently have the following configurations:

UID: mqtt:topic:MqttBrocker:SwitchLight1
label: SwitchLight 1
thingTypeUID: mqtt:topic
configuration: {}
bridgeUID: mqtt:broker:MqttBrocker
location: room1
channels:
  - id: button
    channelTypeUID: mqtt:string
    label: button
    description: ""
    configuration:
      stateTopic: zigbee2mqtt/switchLight/action

UID: mqtt:topic:MqttBrocker:socket1
label: socket1
thingTypeUID: mqtt:topic
configuration: {}
bridgeUID: mqtt:broker:MqttBrocker
location: room1
channels:
  - id: socket
    channelTypeUID: mqtt:switch
    label: socket
    description: ""
    configuration:
      commandTopic: zigbee2mqtt/socket1/set/state
      off: OFF
      on: ON

Hopefully you mean the name of the action?

You now need a rule which is triggered when the Item that is linked to the mqtt:topic:MqttBrocker:SwitchLight1:button Channel changes state, after which the rule can switch your light on and off.

How are you setting up your rules - files or UI? If it’s files then all the OH2 examples will still work.

The problem with this specific remote controller (dubbed “Puck”) is that the button that is supposed to act like a switch only sends one action, toggle. The controller itself doesn’t have a concept of “on/off”.

So far I couldn’t find a way to make it act directly like a switch item but there is one quick (and ugly) workaround: the button, when held for ~2 sec, also sends the action toggle_hold. You can then map toggle as on and toggle_hold as off.

I would, however, prefer a channel type that would act like a toggle switch.

Hello @hafniumzinc

Since you’ve documented your use of Zigbee2MQTT I wanted to inquire.

I have a heap of Sonoff Zigbee door sensors, and Sonoff Switches, and Sonoff Motion Sensors in my house, all set up with the Zigbee binding, working perfectly.

I recently got a few Ikea Tradfri Switches IKEA E1743 control via MQTT | Zigbee2MQTT and paired them with the Zigbee binding, and set up just like I have my numerous other sensors and sonoff switches set up, but nothing seems to be working. Openhab detects it as online, but receives no input from it, although unlike my Sonoff SNZB-01’s, the Ikea switch’s channel is detected as MACADDRESS_1_dimmer wheras the sonoffs all show MACCADDRESS_1_switch

Although if I can’t get that working, I may try the Zigbee2MQTT route, but have a question, can it run alongside the regular Zigbee binding, using the same zigbee dongle? I would hate to have to move 6 or 7 doors, 3 motion sensors, and a handful of switches from the Zigbee binding over to Zigbee2MQTT and re-do everything using MQTT instead while it’s all been working (almost)flawlessly.

I got this IKEA button working with z2mqtt, would be surprised if it does not work with OH ZigBee binding.
Do you have any log entries?

Re channel, take into account that the button supports 5 actions, 2 of which are dimmer actions (brightness up and down), hence maybe the channel name (there is only one action channel for all 5 actions).

Thanks for the reply!

I’ve just enabled debug logging via

log:set debug org.openhab.binding.zigbee
log:set debug com.zsmartsystems.zigbee
log:set info com.zsmartsystems.zigbee.dongle.ember.internal.ash

Although after pressing the buttons (both single taps, and tap and hold on each) the unique device name doesn’t show up in openhab.log at all.

I pressed the Sonoff switch on my desk to manually control my office light and checked the logs and found the entries for it, so I find that a bit strange.

Can you suggest anything else I can check or try to get it working?

I don’t care quite as much about the dimmer states (pressing and holding either button, although that action could be useful) I more thought the on/off button would be good to trigger certain lights on or off, or program some rules to jump through various dim levels (5/10/25/50/75/100%) using the on as a “jump up to next state” and off as "jump down to next state kind of option.

–Edit–
It does appear to be logging, here’s what the log outputs for that particular device

It looks like it isn’t reporting anything other than it’s _1_dimmer channel, although in my .items file I have it defined as

Switch Switch_UL_TestSwitch "Tradfri Test Switch" {channel="zigbee:device:7e7c171ea7:8cf681fffe2884d2:8CF681FFFE2884D2_1_dimmer"}

I’ve also tried

Dimmer Switch_UL_TestSwitch "Tradfri Test Switch" {channel="zigbee:device:7e7c171ea7:8cf681fffe2884d2:8CF681FFFE2884D2_1_dimmer"}

But any rules based on ‘received update’ such as

rule "Ikea Switch changed"
when
    Item Switch_UL_TestSwitch received update
then
   do something
end

Do not seem to fire.

The log seems indeed odd to me.
It seems that somehow the battery channel works, but the dimmer one only appears once.
You should also actually see a log entry even without any rule, just by clicking the button as it should transmit the zigbee signal to the binding (I think, as mentioned, not using the binding).

It also seems the device is not on the bindings documentation list, though some other remotes still worked (?).
I can also only find posts talking about the remote with z2mqtt.

Will keep digging and report if I find anything else.

Very much appreciate your time and help on this one! It would be one thing to see logs that it’s firing like my other Zigbee sensors/switches but just nothing.

Would you happen to know if I ended up installing/setting up z2mqtt, if it could co-exist with the regular zigbee binding and both share the same zigbee adapter? Or is it exclusive to one or the other?

I’d be happy to tinker with it if it doesn’t take down the regular zigbee binding, since I know I have to point it to the com port. Just don’t want to install it, configure it, and find it kills the regular binding from communicating with the zigbee dongle.

Thanks, will look forward to an update or anything you’d like me to try out. :slight_smile:
