How to Use SONOFF Dongle Plus on Home Assistant? How to Flash Firmware to Cc2652P?

by | Sep 23, 2021 | Product Review, Tutorial

1. Use Dongle Plus on Home Assistant via ZHA Integration

There are two ways to use the SONOFF Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus to manage your Zigbee devices: ZHA or Zigbee2MQTT. Here I will introduce ZHA, which is simpler in configuration.

Precondition:

A Raspberry Pi with Home Assistant installed. Connect your computer to the same Wi-Fi as the Raspberry Pi and enter the following URL into your browser to open the Hass page.

If you have not yet successfully installed Home Assistant, please find the relevant tutorials on the Internet to complete the installation and I will not repeat them here.

Steps:

As the “Product Description String” of the dongle plus’ CP2102N serial chip has been customed to a unique identifier “Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus”, which has been also added to Home Assistant’s whitelist of auto-discovered devices, the configuration of the dongle in Hass can be very simple. Just plug the dongle into your computer, it will be automatically discovered, click “CONFIGURE” to complete the configuration automatically, and then add sub-devices to use.

 

 

If your dongle’s descriptor hasn’t been customed, you can use the tool linked below to change it to “Sonoff Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus”.

If your dongle still can’t be auto-discovered, it may be because your version of Hass hasn’t integrated this feature yet, you can follow the normal configuration steps below.

Normal Configuration Steps:

  1. Insert the dongle and add ZHA Integration

2. Select the corresponding port

3. Select the fourth access method

4. Data flow control is not selected by default, just click next

The dongle is pre-flashed with the official Zigbee 3.0 coordinator firmware, which does not support software flow control. The dongle supports hardware flow control, if you want to enable it, please set the dip switch to on, and generate the firmware that supports hardware flow control before running, see the following document for details on how to generate the corresponding firmware.

5. Add successfully

6. Add sub-devices to the gateway dongle

7. Make the sub-devices enter the pairing mode, and you can control it after adding successfully

2. Firmware Flashing

The Zigbee 3.0 USB Dongle Plus comes pre-flashed with the 3.x.0 Z-Stack coordinator firmware, but if you would like to update, change to router firmware and add to the dongle or generate the firmware that supports hardware flow control, please read the following document.
