plugin Zigate (USB+WiFi) - 2.4.0

Post by pipiche » Saturday 08 September 2018 9:45

We are keen to release this version off the Zigate Plugin, which include a set of update, enhacement and bugfixing.

- Configuration file to enable further configuration parameters
- New data capture from the zigate hardware. It involved also on the fly lenght and checksum validation, in order to ensure proper data transmitted to the plugin feature.
- Reporting device signal quality to Domoticz through RSSI.
- Reporting in the log at plugin start, the Zigate firmware version. We recommend using 03.0d
- Reporting in the log at plugin start and if the firmware version is greater than 03.0b
- We have onboarded a number of new devices ( Xcube Aqara, TRADFRI LED LED1624G9, ...) all of them are now documented in a file name : Compatible-Hardware.md . Feel free to let us know if you are using a device not listed there and working properly.
- Implementation of polling of Profalux shutter state, in order to update Domoticz devices in case of direct radio-command
- a number of bug fixes.

Please make sure to do a restart of the domoticz system in order that all changes are taken into account.

Please feel free to report issue through github: https://github.com/sasu-drooz/Domoticz-Zigate/issues
And if you have any questions, problem please use first the Domoticz forum.
- French channel : https://easydomoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7099
- English channel : https://www.domoticz.com/forum/

If you want to contribue , please let us know , we are looking for help in various areas:
- certifying new ZigBee devices
- improving the plugin
- increasing the level of documentation for end user

Yes, installed it via github, as description provided. Python version is 3.5.3, if that counts.

Did a restart.

Ok, I sorted out. Removed the whole folder, restarted Domoticz, pulled from git, restarted again. Seems ok now, at least no messages in error log.

Thanks a lot , I have updated the initial post in order to recommand a restart of Domoticz, as indeed we have also done few changes in the plugin headers ;-)

@LouiS22 thanks for finding out the solution

Installed the plugin but cannot even see it under Hardware.

I have python 3.5.x but also python 2.7.x wonder if the plugin is picking 2.7 instead of 3.5? Any ideas how to fix this?

I'm using the Zigate USB TTL (no wifi)

Thanks! It looks like I have the libpython as per the wiki too. However I get this on the log file:
PluginSystem: Failed dynamic library load, install the latest libpython3.x library that is available for your platform
I have version 3.5.3 so I install lipbython3.5, same error on log file. Then looked here and went through the steps:
http://www.domoticz.com/wiki/Linux#Prob ... ing_Python -> All seemed ok but still error on the log file

Then reverted to 3.4:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install python3.4 libpython3.4 python3.4-dev
and it worked, ZiGate plugin was there. Not to make it work I guess

None! It works now. I had to go back to python version 3.4 and now all is working.

Quick thing: Instead of reseting HUE lights, can I join an existing network with it? I have several HUE colour, LED strips, Iris, Bloom... and would prefer to join the network rather than having to start from zero.

Is this possible?

Not sure I fully understand what you want, but in general Devices must be created in Domoticz and currently the process requires the pairing process to do so.

I have Hue lights connected to Hue hub. Do I need to reset light and lose connection to Hue hub so I can connect to ZiGate?

Or can I have the Hue light connected to Hue hub and ZiGate at the same time?

You have unfortunately to make a choice between Hue Hub and Zigate, as both of them are a ZigBee controller

Is there a way already to add the Tradfri wall plugs?
Added some Tradfri led's and that went fine but adding the Remote, Motion sensor and Wall plugs doesn't seem described anywhere.

We know that the remote doesn't work for now.
For the Motion sensor this seems also not working .

For the Wall plugs No idea !

But for the remote and the Motion sensor, this more a lack of implementation in the Plugin rather than a Zigate issue. In fact the Remote and the Motion looks to work with group and that is something which is in our roadmap, but we didn't tackle it yet.
