I’m using openhab for home automation for more than a year with a lot of devices and this time I’d like to use it to get data from Xiaomi Aqara sensors using CC2531 USB stick.
To be honest I feel a bit lost here. I’ve managed to install and run zigbee2mqtt service as described here https://www.zigbee2mqtt.io/getting_started/running_zigbee2mqtt.html
and I also managed to pair one of sensors. below you can find my current configuration.yaml of zigbee2mqtt
homeassistant: false permit_join: true mqtt: base_topic: zigbee2mqtt user: openhab password: openhab server: 'mqtt://localhost' advanced: log_level: debug serial: port: /dev/ttyACM0 devices: '0x00158d00048325e0': friendly_name: 'xiaomi_aqara_1' retain: true experimental: output: attribute
And this is where I stuck.
I wasn’t able to proceed nor with ZigBee Binding neither with MQTT Binding. I’ve went through topics when it was described that bridges are necessary to run it, and on others that bridges are no longer required for openhab to talk to mqtt.
- which binding should I use?
- is there anything else I should install/configure?
- does anyone has working configuration to share here with short description?
