Blue Series 2-1 Firmware Changelog | VZM31-SN

January 18, 2023 / v2.10 / 0x0102020A

Note: We haven’t officially announced 2.10, but it is available on Hubitat servers for our beta testers. It may have an issue with binding when you have a master and a slave Inovelli device (virtual 3-way). Please wait to update until we have the issue figured out.

November 11, 2022 / v2.08 / 0x01020208

Note: We are waiting for a PR to go through for HA before releasing it there. Should be released on Hubitat soon. Bump ZHA quirks lib to 0.0.86 by dmulcahey · Pull Request #81966 · home-assistant/core (github.com)

  • Fix the ability to send commands to a group binding.

November 8, 2022 / v2.07 / 0x01020207

Note: It looks like 2.07 introduces a bug with group binding control and it is currently required that you use individual device binding. I’ll post an update when this gets resolved.

  • Remove the sending of multicast commands to avoid switches that would accidentally control other devices within a group.
  • Fix the wrong destination endpoint used when sending some commands.

November 7, 2022 / v2.06 / 0x01020206

  • Fix for devices that are bound to the switch not using speed parameters 1-8.

November 4, 2022 / v2.05 / 0x01020205

  • Add parameter 262: Disable the “double tap” to clear notifications feature. Users can make it so family members do not clear notifications at the switch. (2.02)
  • Improve the speed of sending power reports when load changes from on-to-off or off-to-on. (2.02)
  • Added LED notifications: “falling”, “rising”, “aurora single”, and others. (2.02)
  • Fix the bug that changes Philips Hue color temperature when dimming down. (2.03)
  • Fix for device binding to Innr and possibly other devices. (2.05)
  • Ability to change max level in On/Off 3-way dumb mode to accommodate special scenarios. (2.05)

Thanks Eric! I’m out of town till Sunday night, but I’ll have some time on Monday to try this out (I’m the Innr-plug-binding guy, so I’m eager to see how that goes with this version).

Cheers!

Just updated on 2 of my Blue switches in Z2M. I do love the way the LED bar updates to reflect percentage complete.

It looks like my flickering issue is now resolved. I should note, I don’t see the new LED notification types, I guess we’ll need a new Z2M converter update to support these. CC: @nathanfiscus (since you kindly made the recent updates).

Other observation is that after the update, Z2M doesn’t appear to reflect a new firmware version number (2.00) or firmware version date (2020805). I’m not sure if this is a Z2M bug or the firmware not tagged correctly.

I just updated using z2m 1.28.1, and my Blue shows version 2.05 with a date of 20221103

I haven’t updated my switches yet but I have 2 issues with them right now. The first issue is with quick start. I have noticed when changing the brightness from the Google home app the brightness goes to the quick start level before changing to the new brightness.

The second issue I have is with my second switch that is meshed before it gets to the hub. Apparently 27ft through a single wall is too far away to talk directly to the hub. I can control the second switch from the hubitat fine but if I try to control it from the Google home app the switch becomes unresponsive. It requires an air gap to reset it. I don’t know how the switch can even tell it’s being controlled from a different source. Maybe Google is turning the switch off and on rapidly before changing the brightness?

Check the MAC address of your switches and check out this thread–wonder if your is part of the affected batch. Blue Series 2-1 Signal / Routing / Performance Issue Troubleshooting Thread - #194 by dmulcahey

I had the same issue with one of my switches - one of them has 2.00 after the update and one of them reports 2.05. Both seem to work fine as before, though the LED effect is still not available as a device action in Z2M.

Ok, looks like 2/3 of my switches have that issue. I just updated the firmware to 2.05 on the “good” switch. Hopefully 94:DE:B8 is ok. I will have to re-enable quick start and see if the bulb flashing issue still exists on the new firmware.

How do I upgrade with ZHA?

Search the site below under ota for the text to add to your configuration.yaml, reboot, they will update automatically.

For info:

And if they don’t reboot, you can use the cluster command in the link to push them to go :slight_smile: Just make sure your logging is set to debug if you want to see the update progress in system logs, otherwise you’ll get a visual indicator of progress on the switch’s LED bar.

Follow the instructions that @mbrink posted. Make sure to reboot HA once you’ve edited the configuration.yaml. Then just give it a bit of time. One of my switches was very quick to update (within 5 minutes), the other with lower LQI took some time (I want to say an hour but I’m not really certian). I did see the single bottom LED on the lightstrip turn on and blink while the update was performing the update. I just left it alone and 10 minutes after I updated it was completed.

Tried to update the firmware on my Blue switch on Hubitat, says it failed due to “cancel request from device”. The switch was untouched during the update. I did do the double click as requested in the logs. This is one of the UNaffected switches 04:0D:84…

Yep, looks like 2.06 is up and they grabbed 2.05. Thanks.

This happened to a lot of us during beta. You just have to keep trying. Not sure if it’s the server, hub, or switch. It’s annoying, but at least it doesn’t break the switch. Maybe one day Hubitat folks will let us flash locally for zigbee.

2.06 isn’t listed in the prod firmware.json file, that’s why they’d grab 2.05 for now.

I am a bit confused about the firmware versions. I used ZHA to update the firmware and now it shows 0x01020205. Not sure what this translates to…is it 2.05? Thanks!

Yep, that’s 2.05, going to show up a little different in ZHA than some other hubs, but the main part you’ll care about are those last 4 numbers.

Welp… the INNR binding issue is not fixed – I just re-installed some 04’s and 94:DE’s and updated all of them successfully to the 2.05 firmware on Hubitat (also using latest available HE driver).

All switches have been installed for a couple hours, and one of my 94:DE has binded itself to at least one nearby INNR 224 plug.

I’m not using any zigbee-binding setups with any of my Blues and I don’t have the binding app or original binding driver installed anymore (I cleared those out and reset my Hubiat database since then, so any dregs of those should be long gone).

I’ll post this info in the performance thread too.
