Aqara & Xiaomi Smart Home - Zigbee App (v1.3.0)

…More>Settings>Zigbee

And thanks for pointing out, @Caseda, the reset option is only present on the mobile app. I could’ve been more clearer on that one🙃

Damn. I hope it’ll stay stable otherwise I’ll do it all over again :sweat_smile:

Hi, @TedTolboom can you tell any good news H1 update?

Are you going to ask about this every week now?

if someone says a date about what to expect, then no

I hope @TedTolboom is going to respond so I know when I can start using the 15 (useless) switches i bought. If it takes more than a couple of months I need to start looking for a different solution.

@Felho @Gijs_van_Hoek you both seem to be forgetting that Ted is a community developer that is working on this app in his spare time. You can keep asking about it, but at some point you’re just going to be That Annoying User.

I’m sure that when support is imminent, you’ll read it here on the forum.

To comment on the questions raised in this topic.

Like @robertklep mentioned, I am developing this app in my spare time, which with a fulltime job and family will be fluctuating throughout the year.

In addition, I don’t control the information webshops add to their websites on which Aqara devices are supported by Homey (my app); there is only one reference and that is the information in Homey’s app store.

I am engaging with Aqara directly to provide support for new devices as early as possible, based on provided documentation. Unfortunately this is not yet working effectively.

To illustrate this: Adding the H1 wireless double switch bluntly to Homey will result in the device taking over control over any nearby Zigbee device with onoff capability. You can try this at your own risk.

Finding the option to prevent this, within the limitations of Homey’s Zigbee implementation and add robust support for a device, without generating issues for the ~20k users of this app, is the time consuming part of the work. In this case, this issue has been resolved and I am finalizing the implementation of this driver; expected to release somewhere next week to the app store.

On the question how people can contribute?
Well if you appreciate the effort being put into the app and you want to support future development, you’re more than welcome to press the tiny donate link at the far bottom side of the app’s app store page.
Direct code contributions are also welcome, but please keep in mind that considering the size of the user base, I will need to validate the code myself before releasing contributions to the app store.

Hope this clarifies the different questions, if not, let me know.

Hi @TedTolboom thank you very much for your reply. Your effort is much appreciated! The donation will be coming your way.

Yes, of you use the app. Donate…

thank you for responding

Do I need to have an Aqara Hub in order to communicate with Homey or the hub is not required and I can add the modules directly with Homey?

You don’t need an Aqara Hub, you can connect the supported devices directly with Homey.
When using Zigbee devices with Homey in general, please note the following:
