So I am using all my ZigBee devices in connection with ZigBee2MQTT, Mosquitto and a MQTT binding. This works mostly fine (with a small - longer command delay), but I am a friend of personally using a more direct approach (with a native binding). I am already doing this with my Z-Wave devices, but using ZigBee some things were missing in the past (AFAIK), like getting the button presses from the (e.g.) Ikea Tradfri remotes - or the occupancy from the motion sensors. I could be partly wrong, though.
Also does somebody know whether the binding currently supports something similar like the “transition” mode in ZigBee2MQTT, which “enables” devices to smoothly fade from one brightness-level into the other? Or other device specific features (e.g.) mentioned here?
The official zigbee binding page list ikea motion sensor as compatible, however I have tried both ikea dimmer and sensor and they are not working for me. Everything is discovered but no motion and no dimmer press is reported. I do not know if the devices need firmware update to operate correctly. Because I do not have an ikea bridge I cannot perform a firmware update to test that.
