ZigBee Sensor


There are two types of ZigBee sensor available to Home Assistant:

To configure an analog input pin sensor, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: zigbee
    name: My Analog ZigBee Input
    type: analog
    pin: 0
    address: 0013A2004233D138

Configuration variables:

  • name (Required): The name you would like to give the sensor in Home Assistant.
  • type (Required): Set to analog or temperature.
  • pin (Optional): The number identifying which pin to sample.
  • address (Optional): The long 64 bit address of the remote ZigBee device whose pin you would like to sample. Do not include this variable if you want to sample the local ZigBee device‚Äôs pins.
  • max_volts (Optional): The maximum voltage which the input pin is able to read. Defaults to 1.2.

Examples

Analog Input Pin

The analog input pins on an XBee (non-Pro) will read 0V to 1.2 V. This is translated by the xbee-helper library into a percentage. The maximum voltage your ZigBee device will read is configurable using the max_volts configuration variable.

To configure an analog input pin sensor, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

## Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: zigbee
    name: My Analog ZigBee Input
    type: analog
    pin: 0
    address: 0013A2004233D138

See the Digi knowledge base for more XBee sampling details.

Temperature Sensor

The XBee Pro (and perhaps other third party modules) contains a thermometer device which can be read by using the TP AT command.

To configure a temperature sensor device, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: zigbee
    name: Living Room Temperature ZigBee
    type: temperature
    address: 0013A20050E752C5
