  • How To:TRÅDFRI/TRADFRI 5 button remote setup

    Hi, this one gave me some grief so i figured i would share how i made it work.

    i am referring to this remote:

    https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20303317/

    first off. this needs NEWER firmware than the Nov 2018 on the zigbee stick so keep that in mind.

    This remote DOES NOT need paring. you put a battery in it and it shows up as:

    zigbee2mqtt/deviceID:action

    it has the following values:
    toggle
    brightness_down_click
    brightness_up_click
    arrow_right_click
    arrow_left_click
    brightness_up_hold
    brightness_down_hold
    brightness_down_release
    arrow_right_hold
    arrow_right_release
    arrow_left_hold
    arrow_left_release
    brightness_up_release

    so this gives us 13 actions to trigger events from!

    there is also a linkquality and duration sub but for some reason no battery.


    To trigger i used a "device had its value set to" on the action and picked the action i wanted.



    Toggle on off was a bit tricky due to a lack of else in the homeseer engine so it triggers 2 events, one that checks if the device is on and the other to see if it is off then it inverts it.

    Edit:
    if you have spuds easy trigger plugin, you can use that for toggle on off and dim up and down.

    hope this helps someone

    This is a good approach using VSP to hold the various button push values.
    ​Another option for those comfortable with scripting is to trigger on the topic or trigger on the device change and then use script if/else or case to execute the specific actions.

    Is mcsMQTT handling two consecutive pushes of the same button to your satisfaction?

    If you hold a up or down button do you get repeated MQTT message in a slewing style or does the remote only have on message per button push?

      Yes it seems to be managing 2 pushes of the same button ok.

      not sure on the button hold down, the device its self reports the long presses

        On RGBGenie for brightness control buttons it reports a "start" on long press and "stop" on release.
