I'm developing a Zigbee coordinator that works as an On-Off Switch for the Zigbee Profile HA: this connects to the Device Mains Power Outlet, again with the HA profile.
Among them are linked through the Finding & Binding procedure: when I press the ON button on the switch, the Main Power Outlet turns on.
What I need is the ACK response that automatically sends the Mains Power Outlet device when the value of the OnOff attribute changes following the request made by the coordinator: I need it because I have to manage actions following the fact if the device Mains Power Outlet has actually received my command (I also do not have visual access to the device so I have to rely on the response from the ACK to know if it received the command correctly or not).
I assumed that the ACK response is automatic and that it is activated when I declare the endpoint and I call this define: ZB_HA_MAINS_POWER_OUTLET_REPORT_ATTR_COUNT.
I assumed that the answer is automatic also because, if I connect the Mains Power Outlet endpoint to Amazon Echo, I see that, when I send the command, Alexa changes the state of the device in the App only after the device has responded and not before (if I have the device off and I try to turn it on via Alexa, this tells me that the device does not respond because obviously it has not received back response from the device).
I hope I have explained my doubts to the fullest.
I think this case got lost in the queue, I've just got it assigned to me.
I looks similar to the case I already have with you, so lets keep the discussion there.
Actually I understood what the problem was.
I was looking for the Default Response because I wanted to be sure that the request sent by the Zigbee Coordinator was actually executed by the device.
I will briefly explain my way to obtain the parsing of the Default Response by the Zigbee Coordinator:
After sending the write attribute request through a specific command by the Coordinator to the Router, the Router executes the command and sends the Default Response back to the Zigbee Coordinator.
To read the Default Response, I have to register the callback to handle the ZCL commands
When it arrives, I do this:
zb_zcl_write_attr_res_t * p_attr_resp;
zb_uint8_t status_resp = 0;
static zb_void_t zcl_device_cb(zb_uint8_t param)
zb_buf_t * p_buffer = ZB_BUF_FROM_REF(param);
zb_zcl_parsed_hdr_t * p_cmd_info = ZB_GET_BUF_PARAM(p_buffer, zb_zcl_parsed_hdr_t);
status_resp = p_attr_resp->status;
My question is: In the struct "zb_zcl_write_attr_res_t", what is the "attr_id" field?
Is it correct my approach?
Thank you and best regards,
Hi again Raffaela.
Are you only looking for the MAC acknowledge?
If you want to make sure that the value have changed, you should configure the reporting so that the device is notified about changes to the value. You can use a simple read attribute command to read the value of the attribute.
Could you explain some more about what you want to achieve?
I'll explain the context better: from the coordinator I send a command of this type: ZB_ZCL_WINDOW_COVERING_SEND_GO_TO_TILT_PERCENTAGE_REQ.
I enable Default Response.
The device receives this message.
At this point, the device sends back the response to the Coordinator that I can intercept declaring, on the Coordinator, the callback I posted before: zcl_device_cb.
My question is: in the struct "zb_zcl_write_attr_res_t", what is the "attr_id" field?
Raffaela said:My question is: in the struct "zb_zcl_write_attr_res_t", what is the "attr_id" field?
"attr_id" is the ID of the attribute.
