Hey noob to HA here. I bought a bunch of Xiaomi devices that have custom drivers and manage to hook them up. Im having troubles working out how to use them in rule machine/motion-senor lighting/ button.. etc.
I bought the AQ button but its only command is to resetBattery.
The motion sensor doesnt seem to have any activity despite being connected to the Hub
You might want to try the Motion Lights app, or the Simple Lighting app to get started with testing them? Its easier than RM for lighting. RM is a little bit of a learning curve. A great read here (if you haven't already?)
Not familiar with Yeelights, although if you can operate them from within the Device in HE, then they should be fine.
I'd open the Logs page, and check that you see the Xiaomi devices logging when using, and showing what you did correctly. At least you know they are communicating properly (if you haven't already that is)
I mean Xiaomi devices that have custom drivers for hubitat. Yes i have loaded them to with the right driver codes and assigned them. My button commands have only one option which is to resetbattery (it doesnt have the push command) not sure if thats an issue
In this use case it turns off all my downstairs lights when we go to bed.
As has been said above you can select toggle so if the light is off and the button is pressed the light turns on. When pressed again it turns of.
I.e. It toggles the light condition.
