sonoff detects my Zigbee device for smart home but it stays offline all the time.
I have installed on the raspberry z2m and mosquitto. Does anyone have a tip to fix the problem in OH3?
Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus detected my Zigbee motion sensor, but it's still offline?
If it’s a battery device it might take a bit for it to communicate with the coordinator. I’ve a couple of water sensors that remain offline for up to 20 minutes after OH restarts.
Without further information about your setup it is impossible to diagnose the problem:
- motion sensor not supported by Zigbee2MQTT
- mosquitto: configuration wrong
- MQTT binding not installed
- MQTT bridge misconfigured
- MQTT Thing misconfigured
I use a Raspberry Pi as a server. It runs openhab 3.0 and I have installed mosquitto and z2m.
With the help of the Sonoff dongle I wanted to integrate my motion detectors (both Zigbee devices). This works as soon as the dongle is online you can create a thing about the zigbee binding by activating the scan and pairing mode.But now the Dongle switch from online to offline.
I use the model ZBDongle-E.

What is still missing is the information about which Zigbee sensors are involved (manufacturer, model no., …) …
Visit | Zigbee2MQTT for information on whether your sensors are supported by Zigbee2MQTT. Possibly your sensors are not supported by the openHAB Zigbee binding. In this case you should provide a fingerprint from your sensors (see ZigBee - Bindings | openHAB). Providing a fingerprint would be the first step to add support for your devices in the openHAB Zigbee binding.
BTW, I can confirm that your ZBDonge-E is supported by Zigbee2MQTT.
Can you clear this up? You either:
- Use zigbee2mqtt and the MQTT Binding in openHAB, or
- The Zigbee binding in openHAB.
But not both.
You might be affected by EMI. Try to use a USB extension cable between your RaspberryPi and your USB dongle.
