After I updated to OH 2.5 my Aqara sensor stopped working. The odd thing is that whenever I click discover items, it always finds the sensor as unknown Zigbee device, even more weird is that when I take out the battery from the device it still finds it and even if I disconnect the C2531 dongle it still shows up. Tried to clear cache, reinstall Zigbee binding neither worked, any suggestion?
The binding caches information about devices to make it quicker to discover them later since the dongle doesn’t remember what devices have joined the network. This is why the binding will discover devices when the battery is removed. Also, the may be found even without this for other reasons since battery devices normally sleep and therefore removing the battery doesn’t change anything and devices will potentially be retained in child tables.
If the node hasn’t been discovered, then this needs to complete. Deleting the information that has already been discovered (if any) will very likely make that a slower situation. You should reset the device and re-include it into the network.
I have the same Problem after updating to 2.5. I deleted all Sensors, cleaned Cache via (console-cli) and then started to reinitegrate the sensors on PaperUI. There is one Sensor which Always appears even if there is no battery in it and Always shown as offline. The whole Setup was working previour the Update. It is an aquara Magnetic door sensor.
Here the Log:
Can I just delete the zigbee bindings whole cache? Got only a few things added. Tried to find the cache but I’m clueless how to do it.
Okey…I waited without touching it (left it as added thing), 1-2 day later it was marked as “not present in the network”, I deleted the the thing, re-added to the system and everything works fine now.
