Zigbee Home Automation integration for Home Assistant allows you to connect many off-the-shelf Zigbee based devices to Home Assistant, using one of the available Zigbee radio modules compatible with zigpy (an open source Python library implementing a Zigbee stack, which in turn relies on separate libraries which can each interface a with Zigbee radio module a different manufacturer).
There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:
- Binary Sensor
Known working Zigbee radio modules:
- EmberZNet based radios using the EZSP protocol (via the bellows library for zigpy)
- XBee Zigbee based radios (via the zigpy-xbee library for zigpy)
- Digi XBee Series 2C (S2C) modules
- Dresden-Elektronik deCONZ based Zigbee radios (via the zigpy-deconz library for zigpy)
To configure the component, a
zha section must be present in the
and the path to the serial device for the radio and path to the database which will persist your network data is required.
# Example configuration.yaml entry zha: usb_path: /dev/ttyUSB2 database_path: /home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/zigbee.db
Default value: ezsp
(string)(Required)Path to the serial device for the radio.
(integer)(Optional)Baud rate of the serial device.
Default value: 57600
(string)(Required)Full path to the database which will keep persistent network data.
(boolean)(Optional)Enable quirks mode for devices where manufacturers didn’t follow specs.
Default value: true
To add new devices to the network, call the
permit service on the
zha domain. Do this by clicking the Service icon in Developer tools and typing
zha.permit in the Service dropdown box. Next, follow the device instructions for adding, scanning or factory reset.
