What is your dev/test setup?

#1

Hi All,

I am looking for examples of the setup people use to add devices to zigbee2mqtt. I use hass.io on a 3b+ pi that is my everyday system and I have just purchased a second sniffer to allow me to work on integrating other zigbee devices into zigb2mqtt. What do you all use to do this? a virtual machine and usb pass through? All of my devices are windows at the moment.

Keen to hear the best way to go to.

Brenton.

Windows should work just fine, see https://github.com/Koenkk/zigbee2mqtt/issues/648

I have it running and have paired a known working device - I can see it working fine so thanks!

  • I have a Sercomm power plug which currently isn’t supported. I believe i need to sniff the traffic as a basic configuration isn’t working. ZBOSS keeps throwing an error about; Failed to connect to sniffer at COM3

Do I absolutely have to flash the ZBOSS firmware for the sniffing to work? I flashed it and then zigbee2mqtt wouldnt start.

Could you create an issue here (with the device you want to add, and the log): https://github.com/koenkk/zigbee2mqtt/issues
