I bought a new MMB Research RapidSE ZigBee Stick. I plugged into my raspberry pi? But how do I check if it is working.
I installed the ZigBee bindings. What else do I need to do? I have a smart things button but it is not being detected.
I don’t believe that it will work as from my previous discussions on this stick, it doesn’t use the standard EZSP protocol.
Otherwise you can try the Ember driver to see if that works, but I’m not too hopeful.
what stick would you recommend?
you installed serial binding right?
I have a Linear HUSBZB-1 see the first post in this thread for a picture of it. It does zigbee & zwave I use both. It cost me about $30 usd
I am looking to control GE Zigbee bulbs.
This sticks seems to support Zigbee. Does this work with openhab?
here is another link to a thread I started while trying to get mine working. and it includes many things to check and how
Hardware: _CPU i3/RAM 8 g/storage 1tb
OS: Debian 9
Java Runtime Environment: _openjdk 18.104.22.168
openHAB version: latest stable
Issue of the topic: I have a Linear HUSBZB-1, it worked in OpenHAB running in Windows but I can’t get it to work in debian
Detailed explanation: I had openHAB running on a Windows 8.1 desktop. Purchased and installed HUSBZ-1 with windows driver. Installed binding in paperUI, discovery found both controllers. com3 and com4. Next discovery f…
Here is a link where Lorenzo is trying to get his working - lots of great debugging techniques
I’ve seen a number of other posts about this, but none of those solutions work for me. I was able to manually add the device in PaperUI, by specifying the Ember coordinator. I set up hw control and baud rate of 57600. I’m running openhabian 2.4 on an RPi3.
The zigbee thing comes up as “Unknown” in PaperUI and with “?” next to it in Habmin. I put the zigbee binding in debug mode, but I don’t get anymore info. In any case here is the log if I change a property in either Habmin or PaperUI:
Here is link to the zigbee binding thread (over 2000 posts) basically the encyclepedia of zigbee development
I would like to try out the Zigbee binding that is under development!
Where can I found the repository with the latest work?
I have some different TI hardware that I would like to test with it (CC2530, CC2531, CC2538, CC2650). Is there any instruction on how to generate the firmware, as I understand it is based on the sample code from TI, so it might be possible to generate firmware for them?
I have some hardware from other vendors also, but then the interface needs to be rewritten? …
These things won’t help if the binding does not support the dongle
. This dongle, while it’s an Ember inside, uses custom firmware.
As suggested above, the HUSBSB-1 is a good option in the US as it also contains ZWave.
Otherwise, the Telegesis ETRX357 dongle is well supported, but does not have a good upgrade path (although that said, the HUSBZB-1 is also limited in this respect because it doesn’t contain a bootloader so also can’t be updated).
In Europe there is another dongle made by Bitron and sold by Qivicon which includes the EM357 - it will work well under Linux, but as it has non-standard device codes, it’s not recognised in Windows or Mac.
The other option is the TI2531 based dongles - these are ok, but have issues at the moment with support. I’m currently rewriting the driver for this so hopefully the newer firmware will be supported in future.
What button would you recommend with this stick?
I’m not sure what a “button” is in this context? Do you mean some sort of remote control?
Basically a push button – I want some things to be turned on when the button is pressed. Google flic that’s another one.
I want a simplest / cheapest solution. Does not have to be zigbee based
The hue wireless dimmer switch is $25 locally and it works with zigbee dongle or hue hub and you get 4 buttons. I use mine to turn on and off the music and adjust the volume

Hi chris, do you have a link for the stick? i don´t find a dongle wich contains zigbee and z wave.
