Vesternet Zigbee Herdsman Converters

These are officially available via the Zigbee2MQTT codebase, meaning that with a recent Zigbee2MQTT installation Vesternet Zigbee devices should work out-of-the-box in Home Assistant.

Sometimes changes to the herdsman converters can take a while to appear in the official Zigbee2MQTT codebase, so you can also download them direct from our Github repository

Adding herdsman converters manually is possible via Zigbee2MQTT, simply upload the file to the same location as your Zigbee2MQTT configuration file and then add the file name to the "External Converters" section in the Settings area of the Zigbee2MQTT UI.


More information on this is available in the Zigbee2MQTT documentation.


Please report any issues with the Vesternet Zigbee Herdsman Converters by submitting a technical request ticket.
