Zigbee Configurable Firmware v2.4

The firmware allows creating a device with a easily configurable functionality including inputs, outputs, ADC, pulse counter/generator, I2C, external sensors.

Features overview

I’ve placed all features on the separate page. It is too long.

What’s new?

  • The status LED indicator works now.
  • The firmware supports up to 8 GPIO inputs or outputs.
  • The “switch” mode for inputs.
  • Pull-up, Pull-down, Tri-state options for inputs and outputs.
  • Analog inputs.
  • Internal temperature measurement.
  • Source voltage measurement.
  • UART (only text commands between an external device and a host, look at README.txt).
  • Some environmental sensors (DS18B20, BMP280, BME280, DHT 11, DHT 22, DHT 12, AM2301, Sonoff SI7021,MHZ19, SenseAir S8).
  • Not tested: SI7021 (I2C), CCS811.
  • Pulse generator.
  • Pulse counter (infinite, resettable, interval).
  • PWM (hardware 1 MHz).
  • PWM (software 1 KHz).
  • Bi-stable relay.
  • Watchdog timer.
  • Configurable default reporting interval.
  • Expert options (model ID, manufacturer info, network key, etc.).

    The standard ZStack SDK supports 4 buttons (inputs) only. Therefore I’ve implemented 4 inputs.

Many thanks!!! Already tried it, paired with zigbee2mqtt without any problem. But can you point me, how to set outputs from 2 till 8? As far as I understand , I can set Output#1 with topic
zigbee2mqtt//set , with payload “ON” . But how to turn on/off others ?

First of all, great project. Thank you very much for your efforts! I have one suggestion for the “switch” mode input: Would it be possible to add an option that toggles the linked output every time the switch changes its status? I.e. even if the output is On and the switch goes from Off to On, then the Output toggles (from On to Off). The Xiaomi LLKZMK11LM relay does the same (https://www.zigbee2mqtt.io/devices/LLKZMK11LM.html). It would allow to control an output by both the coordinator and a standard wall switch (as opposed to a push button). Thanks!

    Hi, but in this case, the physical position of the switch will not reflect the state of a light.

      Correct! But it allows to add a smart “PTVO-Switch” to an existing installation and control the light by the coordinator and still use the legacy wall switches. E.g. turn off a light that the user left on and still the user can turn it on again by turning the switch normally (sorry, I don’t know the right name for such mode if it exists).

        Hmm. I’ve tested the switch button. It works as you described. I can control the output state through MQTT while the button is pressed. Could you please describe your test scenario? Could you attach a screenshot with your firmware settings?

          Yes but … this is not exactly what I mean. I tested it again. Here is a scenario:
          1. Output 1 is connected to a relay, Input 1 is connected to a physical wall switch (not a button)
          2. The wall switch is turned on -> Output 1 goes ON – perfect!
          3. The coordinator turns Output 1 OFF (e.g. staircase lights after timeout) – perfect!
          4. Now the user comes back and wants to turn Output 1 ON again by turning the wall switch (that is still in ON state, so its turned from ON to OFF) –> nothing happens!
          Instead the user has to turn the wall switch twice (ON->OFF->ON) to turn Output 1 ON which is less ideal. (Not a big thing but a small but “smart” difference to most other smarthome devices, except the Xiaomi LLKZMK11LM relay that does exactly what I mean but doesnt’t fit in a wall hole)
          This is my setting:
          Status LED: Yes
          Output pins: P10: Output 1, GPIO, Pull-down, Remember state
          Input pins: P00: Input 1, GPIO, Pull-down, Switch, Link to out 1
          Thanks!

          I think the current behavior is more related to physical switches because they have fixed positions for ON and OFF.

This is really awesome. It’s like a start of ESPhome for CC2530 instead of ESP8266.
I mean it allow to create a zigbee device with a simple interface (like esphome allow to create a wifi device without coding).
Is it possible to make device wich work with battery (like CR2032) ?

There is a popular zigbee module https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1Y3NMaUY1gK0jSZFCq6AwqXXaa.jpg using the RFX2401 PA controlled by P14 (RXEN) and P12 (TXEN). This is different from the typical CC2590 modules using three signals P11 (PAEN), P14 (EN) and P07 (HGM). While RXEN (P14) can be set to permanent high, TXEN (P12) needs to be enabled during Tx only. Can you provide a special FW flavour for this type of module? It is used in the popular ZigbeeOnOff Switch (https://www.zigbee2mqtt.io/devices/KS-SM001.html) and could be easily flashed and enhanced with your great config tool. I volunteer for testing if needed. Thanks for considering!

    Please, note that ZStack SDK disables RXEN and TXEN only when CC2530 goes to the sleep mode. So, mostly these pins are high.

But according to the datasheet while in RX mode TXEN (P12) must be low. TXEN must be high only in TX mode, similar to PAEN of CC2590. Can your FW support such a modification? Simply need to assign TXEN/PAEN from P11 to P12 instead. Datasheet: https://www.skyworksinc.com/-/media/SkyWorks/Documents/Products/2301-2400/RFX2401C_204359B.pdf

Do you think about making your project available to open source community? At least it will widen a community of such a good project, and many features will be implemented by other members.

Personally, I need a some kind of low power mode and this is a must for me, because I want to implement many battery powered applications in my house (oh, and I will not use mechanical relays for this of course). In case of open-sourced project I could implement this and contribute to community and in case of closed-source project I forced to wait when functionality will be added by owner.

Anyway, thank you for your great work!!!

      well an RGB strip is normally controlled by one or more PWM signals, 95% of the time it’s one only (single color strip) or three (RGB strip), those are the 2 type of commands the module shoudl listen to when used for PWM/StripLed control

Thanks so much for your effort! I’ve successfully used your previous firmware configurator for my cc2530 modules and cc2530+cc2591 modules. This is sooo easy and useful πŸ™‚

This time I’ve just tested it briefly because I use ConBee and all newly implemented features can’t be consumed via deCONZ. However I see the clusters with attributes that do make sense (e.g. power source measurement). So cool!
I can’t wait for dresden elektronik to finally support zigbee2mqtt so I can use your configurator not only to control relays/outputs, but also to do my DIY sensors in a places when I don’t have WiFi coverage. That is so perfect. Many thanks for sharing this with us!

One thing that I may want to see is a little bit more comprehensive explanation how some configurable options work with their purpose. Unfortunately not all is perfect clear to me.
Examples:
– default vs. pull-up vs. pull-down differences
– some expert settings: PSM, firmware timestamp, watch dog timer

Thank you again!

    First of all, you should look at the datasheet for the CC2530 chip. There are much useful information.
    default vs. pull-up vs. pull-down – default the default state of the pin, when CC2530 starts. pull-up – the unconnected pin state is “HIGH”, pull-down – “LOW”.
    firmware timestamp – the Zigbee device information has that attribute. You may place your date code there.

Hi,
I am testing the new firmware but have some issue to connect a BME280 using I2C.
I have two connections on my PCB; P0.5 and P0.6 on which I want to connect SDA and SCL but I see I can choose to define them asoutput and as input. When defined as output, I can enter the I2C address (118) but not in input.
So is it an input or an output ?
I tried both but nothing is reported.
Thank you

      Yes, the sensor works, I connected it to an Arduino but it’s a BME280 and not a BMP280 (according to readme, BMx280 are supported, is it correct?). It’s accessible using I2C address 0x76 (118).
      I retried as an output, removed it from Z2M before flashing and pair it after but nothing is reported.

      In the tool, I used ‘Output 7’ for DMP280(I2C SDA) linked to P06 with address 118 and ‘Output 8’ for I2C SDL linked to P20.
      Are these ports OK or do I have to select some specific ports for I2C communication?
      Is there a way to debug something ?

        It’s working now, apparently problem was due to the DS18B20 I configured too.
        If I use a DS18B20 as input and a BME280, only the DS18B20 temperature is reported as L2.
        If I define only the BME280, I get the report but everything is reported in L7, is it normal ?
        So it seems the BME temp, pressure and humidity are reported one after the other and not separately.

I have a problem to get latest V2.2 running on a E18-MS1-PCB (CC2530+CC2592).
It’s is simply not joining network or showsing any transmission attempts.
Tried different configs. My latest config attached:
Board type: CC2530 + CC2592
Model ID: Fingerprint
Power saving mode (PSM): No

Output pins:
P03: Output 1, GPIO, External pull-up
P06: Output 2, GPIO, External pull-up

Input pins:
P12: Input 1, GPIO, External pull-up
P14: Input 2, GPIO, External pull-up
P17: Input 3, GPIO, External pull-up

I had no problems with V1.1 in combination with theses chips.

    Hello Olili.

    Does your board have “External pull-up” on input pins? The previous version used the “Pull-up” mode by default. Try to change the pull-up mode. Try to shift input pins and do not use Input 1.

      thx. I removed every input now and only configured one output with internal pull-up. Additionally I tried it now with a board without CC2592 Amplifier (in addition to my E18s). Within Expert-Setting I only enabled ModelID to “Fingerprint”. Everything else is disabled.

      But until now no improvement. I’m not able to pair with your firmware. Everything else is working well within my zigbee network. I’m also able to add non ptvo devices.

          Coorrdinator (Z2M) had to be reflashed. Somehow not enough space for further pairings …. now everythig works as expected. Many thy for your support!

I tried to make latest version v2.2 running on several E18-MS1-PCBs (CC2530+CC2592) with several configurations. As P1.1、P1.0、P0.7 are connected with CC2592 pins I have not used these 3 pins in any configuration.

Nevertheless until now I was not able to pair it with my Zigbee-Network.

With my own SW the devices are pairing without any problem.
Any hint?

Very nice project!
Using a CC2530 card and this firmware, I can drive a IR LED to send codes (like remote controller)?
(I m a newbe, sorry if my question can be ridicolous)

Dear ptvo,

I played around with your v2.2. In sum: great work!
Nevertheless I’m still struggling with the switch button / input logic.

I need 3 inputs which have high-impedance (ie. tristate) and are active high (ie. GND = button released, 3v3 = button pushed).

Until now I was only able to get get this behavior with inverted logic, ie. 3v3 = button released, GND = button fired)

Any hint?

Furthermore I tried the “switch”- input feature. Is this feature already supported by z2m converter scripts? After configuring all simple buttons as “switch”, they were somehow dead. Any hints wrt this?

    1. Input. Did you try the pull-down mode?
    2. Switch. I have tried it in conjunction with an output. Z2M supports on/off states.

      @ptvo,

      yes, tried it with the external pull-down mode. Logic seems still to be low active.
      Is there an difference to internal pull-down?

      Wrt “Switch”: you have directly linked the input to an output and use state of the output, right? And if you do not want to link it an output?

        With internal pull down the firmware inverses logic.

        Switch. You may leave output pin unconnected, like a virtual switch state.

          Thx, internal pull-down is working.

          I would recommend to separate logic (active low/high) from electrical input/output characteristics ( pull-up, pull-down, high-z).

          Additionally I would define different characteristics for gpio input and output:

          input – pull-down, pull-up, high-z (tristate)
          output – low-side, high-side, push/pull

          Thx and best regards, olili

          I’ve tested this. I can link an internal pull down as switch to a output, the input is reversed. But it is not possible to reverse an output. I’ve relais connected wich are active low.
          There is an other problem, when you use internal pulldown, you can’t use the status LED on the same port

Great project, thanks for the work you put into this. Just build basic switch node with a Ebyte E-18 module and it works. I’m using zigbee2mqtt in combination with node-red. Looking forward to the power save function.

    MAybe I can help:

    select a unused GPIO, eg P14.
    Configure it as internal Pull-Up. Connect the switch between P14 and GND.

    Alternatively you can configure the GPIO to internal Pull-Down. Then you have to connect the switch with the GPIO and +3V3.

    Please take care that you do not use a GPIO that is already in use for e.g. controlling the amplifier like P1.1, P1.0, P0.7 in case of CC2592-boards.

    Standard for all boards: Pin 1 to GND, Pin 2 to 3V3, Reset not connected.

Hello, thank you for your effort. I am trying to control an 8-channel relay module, but it has active low inputs. GPIO initial state pins are at low level …Could you add an option to set the GPIO pins state at startup or an inverted option like for the led?
Am I missing something? Thanks.

          I’ve fixed the bug with the configurator. I’ve tested your settings. The “OFF” state involves the “HIGH” state on the output.

Hi, i am really impressed by this great project!!
I try to get some cc2530 modules running in ioBroker but struggeling a little bit.
I modified the devices.js and now my outputs are working.
But i don’t get the input states. The genMultiStateInput throws a timeout error. Does anybody have me some hints :).
Thanks…

Question: the instructions say:

But, if 1 input pin is in switch mode, then what will happen?

Hi, really like what you made here.

I have a question regarding pairing. Is it only possible to pair the device if i set up “zigbee2mqtt”?
I got Home Assistant with deConz (Conbee II) set up as Zigbee coordinator. Would it be possible to pair the CC2530 with my Conbee II stick?

    Hi Patrick, the firmware searches for a first open Zigbee network and tries to join. I didn’t work with deConz before and I cannot answer precisely.

hi, I’m struggling to have this firmware working on ebyte E18-MS1-PCB, no matter what I do the pairing does not complete with this error:
“zigbee2mqtt:error 2020-05-17 16:58:50: Failed to interview ‘0x00124b001f853fd6’, device has not successfully been paired”
I even try to configure NOTHING to have a simple ruoter and same error.
If I use your “router only” firmware on the very same device all works perfectly πŸ™
What am I doing wrong? Can you help me please to understand at least where to look at to solve this problem? It’s a pity as I’d like to use this firmware by unable to do (maybe I’m too stupid and missed something obvious… πŸ™ )

      Yes I did and did several tests, as I said even with no input and no output enabled (to have a pure router as you suggested to me in the past) and the device cannot be paired with the same error πŸ™
      I’m stuck…
      I just saw you released v2.4, I’ll try this new version to see if any changes and let you know

        If Z2M added a device ID to a database, but you’ve changed the device configuration, Z2M cannot update info about that device. It is necessary to remove it from a database manually.

@Giovanni,
I had also some big problem to pair ptvo devices with my z2m network.
Finally re-flashing the z2m firmware solved the the problem for me! Really
In this case it is not necessary to re-pair the existing devices of your network.

Dear all,

I want to connect DS18B20 to pin 15 on my CC2530 + CC2592 board. How to set the pin status (Pull-up, pull down, …). Do I need to add 4.7K Ohm or 10K Ohm resistor?

Toni

    Hi Toni. Select internal pull-up for a short cable length (up to 1m) and external pull-up (4k7 Ohm) for longer cables.

Dear all,

when I download new program to configure firmware, I can only see pin-drop down menu and pull-state drop down menu. There is no drop down menu to select type of output/input (like GPIO, ADC, etc.). The filename is: cc2530_io_1.2.2a.44539_firmware.

Is it an old link?

Thank you for the answers. I have additional wish, if it is possible. Is it possible to add to DS18B20 option, that it reports if the temperature change for some dT? So that it would respond on some defined interval, ala 60 minutes and if there would be change in temperature it would also report. If this would be added and deep sleep, than this could be an end device running on battery. What do you think? Similar to Aqara termometer, that runs for more than a year on one battery.

Regards,
Toni

    In any case, the module should wake up to poll the sensor. So, it will not save battery power. Currently, the firmware is not optimized for battery power at all.

      I don’t know how it is at this module, but I guess if you only start onewire and calculate the difference of the previous and new measured temperature, without turning the transmitter on, it shouldn’t consume so much energy, or not?

Hi
I did that already but it’s still an old version.
I also tried with Edge I am not suing so there is zero chance I ever download this file and it’s also the old version.
Maybe it’s better if you could include the version in the file name like that there won’t be any confusion at all.
