OK, getting there. I have now successfully done 1.2.3 and 1.2 for 2 devices.
I have installed zigbeetomqtt on the same raspberry as openhabian, but manually assigned port 8081, as 8080 was - obviously - already taken by openhab runtime.
The problem I’m having now, is that when I close the putty session with which I have started the zigbee2mqtt service, it shuts down the service altogether, so i cannot access openhabian:8081 anymore and openhab doesn’t see the sensors any longer.
I can restart it and that works … but after a while, it just goes offline like that.
Yes it does ship with the right type of firmware but an older version so while it will work out-of-the-box it is still highly recommended that you update the firmware as latest will always contain more bug-fixes.
There is no automatic scan as the Zigbee radio is a serial device so regardless of Zigbee implementation you will always need to manually config it use to device path of the serial port that it has been assigned.
I’m new to OH. Purchased some Sonoff outlets, temp/humidity sensors and a couple of Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus. I upgraded the firmware on one unit via Sonoff’s website instructions, and after reading they should work out of the box, left the other as it was delivered. Neither have worked. I have managed to get a Nortek HUSBZB-1 hitting “online” status on zwave, mqtt, and Ember Coordinator in one of the iterations I’ve tried… but it’s not supported by z2m as of today and zigbee’s where I’m aiming.
My question is what settings are working for the Zigbee Ember Coordinator after establishing the MQTT Broker (online) and a zigbee2mqtt running? I’m on openhabian release 3.2 running on pi4 with the Sonoff ZIgbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus. I’ve tried a lot of variations and can’t seem to get it online with this dongle. Steady “Unkown” and flashing comm errors have resulted from the many combinations I’ve tried.
Another question: I’m using the advice: “remove the non functioning coordinator - restart - add new coordinator”. Will restarting openhabian using systemctl be sufficient to be certain new settings are getting applied?
Thank you for your response, apologies for lacking clarity. I am asking what others are using to configure the Ember Coordinator to work with the Sonoff Zigbee dongle in Openhab 3.2 release. Since this thread seems appropriate I thought I’d ask… Sorry. I’ll look elsewhere.
