No - it’s an issue with ESH and the binding only.
I’m trying to use xiaomi zigbee devices (temp sensor, button) with openhab trough cc2531 stick in a raspberry pi.
Now I see my two xiaomi devices (temp sens WSDCGQ01LM and button WXKG01LM) in the inbox and I can add to Things but both of them offline.
Do you have any experience on this?
Have you successful setup the system?
Thanks in advance,
I have used the temperature sensor and it works ok. I’ve got some other devices, but not tested them.
Note that these devices are nor ZigBee devices, so you can expect problems. For starters they probably don’t work through other routers, and may not work if there are network updates…
For anyone out there using an OH snapshot build >= 1230, could you please test deleting a Zigbee device and rediscovering? There are two of us that have seen an issue, but need some help sorting out the cause and a better understanding of how many people are affected. Thank you!
Has anyone had any luck with the latest snapshot and CC2531? I only get exceptions:

Any pointers, or is there anywhere where I can download a “semi-stable” version of the binding? I am still working to get a remote control to work. This time, I bought a Philips Hue remote. In 2.2.0, it is discovered, but does not offer any channels. So I upgraded to 2.3.0-SNAPSHOT, but then ZigBee doesn’t seem to work at all, at least not with my CC2531 controller…
I would not expect the latest snapshot binding to work on OH 2.2 due to breaking changes in ESH included in build 1230. To use the latest version of the binding, you’ll probably need to upgrade OH.
Did you install it by dropping the jar into addons? There are now 4 jars needed for a manual install. There’s the Zigbee binding and the dongle binding from here…
And then another set of them from here…
By far the easiest way would be to upgrade to a snapshot build and install the binding (just one… the rest will be installed as dependencies) through PaperUI.
openhab> list |grep -i zig 244 │ Active │ 80 │ 1.0.8 │ com.zsmartsystems.zigbee.dongle.ember 245 │ Active │ 80 │ 1.0.8 │ com.zsmartsystems.zigbee 246 │ Active │ 80 │ 22.214.171.124804032001 │ ZigBee Binding 247 │ Active │ 80 │ 126.96.36.199804032001 │ ZigBee Ember Binding
Oh, sorry, was I that unclear? I upgraded the entire OpenHab installation to 2.3.0 snapshot.
No… I just misread your post. When I read…
… I took that to mean you had only downloaded the snapshot version of the binding. Anyhow, it is working for me with an Ember controller.
Actually, this might cause an issue for your controller, but I think it would be in the current build…
same error here with cc2531 when I update to OH 2.3 snapshot
There looks to be a bug in the configuration - I’ll fix that today.
Perfect, thanks a lot! I started thinking about poking around in the code, but as I have never done any Java-development, and don’t know the coding structure of Eclipse / OpenHAB / Bindings, I have a feeling I would need a few weeks to understand where to look
I’ve updated the config description which I hope will resolve this. Please give it a try and if there are still problems I’ll take a look over the weekend when I can test it properly.
Thanks a lot, Chris! I had to find out how to compile these bindings in order to test, but I succeeded, and it now works beautifully! As soon as I get home, I can retry adding my Hue Remote.
Have a great weekend!
You should just be able to install this through paperUI as I did a rebuild this morning.
Hehe, some times the solution is so simple Well, at least I learnt how to compile it. It may come in handy if I struggle with a binding at some point, or something.
Actually, I just removed the bindings from the addons-folder, and tried adding them from PaperUI, but that gives me the following error:
15:01:24.397 [ERROR] [.core.karaf.internal.FeatureInstaller] - Failed installing ‘openhab-binding-zigbee’: Error restarting bundles:
Could not resolve module: org.openhab.binding.zigbee.cc2531 
Another singleton bundle selected: osgi.identity; type=“osgi.bundle”; version:Version=“188.8.131.52804061139”; osgi.identity=“org.openhab.binding.zigbee.cc2531”; singleton:=“true”
-So there may be something not quite right with the rebuild you performed? Obviously, I’ll just re-add the binding manually, so I’m sorted for now.
It looks like you probably have more than one binding running. Possibly karaf has cached your previous version if you were installing it manually (this is quite common).
Ok, thanks again. I will continue fiddling with this, and hopefully not bother you again until something “important” happens!
It’s no bother
After updating to openHAB 2.3.0 Build #1251 my system works or at least everything online.
Now I see my xiaomi device (temp sens WSDCGQ01LM) as ONLINE but I can find any channels.
I do not know whats next, where can I find channels, could you help me?
