I would like to have several temperature/humidity sensors in my flat. I have bought a Xiaomi Aqara Sensor on ebay to play with it because they are very inexpensive. I would like however to connect them over a “standard” coordinator (I have the the USB Xbee stick) because I don’t like the the “proprietary” gateway philosophy (especially a chinese one).
I have been able to add the Aqara sensor as a thing to my openhab setup, with all 3 channels (temp, humidity ,and pressure) but I don’t get the values very reliably (I only get them for 2-3 minutes after I press the button on the sensor). I read that this is a known problem and this shows me that these Aqara sensors are not real Zigbee devices (or at least don’t really respect/implement the standard).
Does anyone have a recommendation for similar sensors ? I would love to find an alternative to them that is well supported.
