ZigBee Switch

A ZigBee switch in this context is a device connected to one of the digital output pins on a ZigBee module. It can simply be switched on and off. By default, a switch is considered on when the ZigBee device’s digital output is held high and considered off when it is held low. This behaviour can be inverted by setting the on_state configuration variable to low.

To configure a digital output pin as switch, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

  - name: Pond Fountain
    platform: zigbee
    pin: 0
    address: 0013A20040791FA2
    on_state: low

Configuration variables:

  • name (Required): The name you would like to give the switch in Home Assistant.
  • pin (Required): The number identifying which pin to use.
  • address: The long 6 4bit address of the remote ZigBee device whose digital output pin you would like to switch. Do not include this variable if you want to switch the local ZigBee device’s pins.
  • on_state: Either high (default) or low, depicting whether the digital output pin is pulled high or low when the switch is turned on.
