This needs to be done manually and the serial port must be set.

TI2531 - Firmware

The TI2531 USB dongle must be flashed with the correct firmware in order to work with this binding. The file can be downloaded from TI website archives (http://www.ti.com/tool/z-stack-archive) as part of the Z-STACK-HOME v.1.2.2a package. The file name is CC2531ZNP-Pro-Secure_Standard.hex and its sha256 is 3cc5dc571ef0f49e3f42c6c2ca076d6f8fef33a945c71e6f951b839ba0599d3c.

Flashing on Linux

It’s possible to flash the dongle using Linux, using cc-tool (https://github.com/dashesy/cc-tool.git). The software has been tested and confirmed working on Ubuntu 16.10 and 17.04. The required dependencies can be installed with sudo apt install build-essential libusb-1.0-0-dev libboost-all-dev, and the binary compiled with ./configure && make. Do not forget to install the udev rules, as described at https://github.com/dashesy/cc-tool/blob/master/README , or the software might not be able to access the USB programmer.

The firmware can be flashed with ./cc-tool -e -w CC2531ZNP-Pro-Secure_Standard.hex -v r. Change the path to the firmware accordingly.

Ember EZSP NCP Coordinator

The Ember EZSP NCP (Network Co-Processor) supports the Silabs EM358 or MightyGecko dongles with the standard NCP firmware.

Devices

The following devices have been tested with the binding

Device Description
Hue Bulbs Color LED Bulb
SmartThings Plug Metered Plug

Discovery

Once the binding is authorized, and an adapter is added, it automatically reads all devices that are set up on the ZigBee controller and puts them in the Inbox.

Thing Configuration

The binding will attempt to automatically detect new devices, and will read their supported clusters upon startup. A set of channels will then be created depending on what clusters and endpoints a device supports.
