This works over Zigbee with Home Assistant and this USB adapter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GJ826F8
I would expect you can get it to work with Hubitat. I was able to get it to work with Home Assistant via generic USB ZigBee dongle, no hub. I would expect Hubitat's ZigBee to work with it as well. Was able to get a bunch of these tied in quickly and they seem to work well. No idea on battery yet.
Yes, an Aqara Hub will be required. The Door and Window Sensor cannot connect to Alexa directly.

Easy and ZigBee is great
Picked up the simple rocker switch for our front door. Previously we had a smart light bulb but with the new door came a new ‘fancy’ light and not easy to find Edison candle smart bulbs. I’ve been using cassetta wireless dimmers but didn’t want to dimmer for the front light and found this switch. Only issue I had was the initial load was not enough because we had less than 10 watts for the Edison Led Candle bulbs. Swapped out the bulbs for two 6 watt bulbs for a total of 12 watts and it works perfectly.
BONUS: Since it uses ZigBee standard, I decided to upgrade my (Original Gen1) Amazon Echo to the new one with the ZigBee Hub. It found the switch after searching 2 times without needing the Aqara hub. Now the switch it control directly by the Amazon Echo (gen4) w/ built in small hub.
Great product, will buy more09/26/2022Verified Purchase
Aqara Vibration Sensor for SMART washing machine/ dryer
Brought the Aqara vibration sensor along with an E1 hub and was able to get notifications on dryer cycle completion seamlessly! Had gone through multiple forums which talked about IFTTT automations, coding etc… but the capability is within the Aqara App itself. Just set the automation inside the Aqara app to send notification with a 5 minute delay. Vibration is measured by the sensor every minute. Once the dryer starts, the automation notification will be sent out 5 mins after the last vibration is detected! See attached picture. Note, You might get another notification when removing clothes from the dryer of course 🙂
Easy way to convert your standard washing machine/dryer to a smart one. Got the sensor and hub for $35 during prime day sale.08/31/2022Verified Purchase
Works with Home Assistant with Sonoff Zigbee dongle.
Installation: In my Home Assistant app, I put the Zigbee Dongle in ‘Add Device’ mode and pressed the reet button on the edge of the Aqara for 5 seconds. Home Assistant quickly recognized one of the buttons and let me control it, but a second button took me a few tries to get it to recognize.
The Aqara comes with a new battery, and I expect that battery to last at least a year.
When it comes time to replace the battery, it is easy to release the back using a US 5¢ piece in the notch on the back, and giving it an ⅛ of a turn.
Note that if you use the adhesive tape that is pre-applied to the back of the button, then you’ll probably have to re-apply adhesive tape after you change the battery. The button comes with one spare donut shaped piece of adhesive in addition to the one already attached to the button.
I use this with a JHome smart wall plug to automate a table lamp: I can use the Aqara button as a local on/off, but still do everything I want with the lamp from Home Assistant .
In Home Assistant, I created a new, blank, automation and told it that when I do a short press of the Aqara it should toggle the JHome wall plug.08/30/2022Verified Purchase
Works great as long as it’s near a zigbee repeater device. When i installed it it paired to one of my outlets in the room i built the setup (used for garage door). When moved to the garage it was giving me a lot of trouble being unreliable. I could get it to work great when testing but it would often not register the garage door as closed. Turned out that it was paired to that outlet on the other side of the house and wouldn’t auto-negotiate to the garage door ESP device that was 8 feet away as shown in my home assistant zigbee map. When i deleted it from my Conbee II and reinstalled it showed up as paired to the ESP device and has been rock solid since.08/16/2022Verified Purchase
They can work with hubitat but you need to add a custom driver. Thankfully someone has made a driver for them that’s easy to find.
Once you do that you can assign them as the device added by the driver and they will work grate. So far 100% reliability single double and hold mode all work grate. I wish the adhesive was more thought out. It’s just double sided foam. The stuff that will ruin surfaces and is only good once. You would have to remove it to replace the battery.. so I used sticky tack instead. That seems to work fine.
The physical design of the thing is better than most. And of course they are cheap to buy. I would definitely buy again
No comment on battery life, I haven’t had them long enough to tell yet but atleast it’s a common sized battery08/14/2022Verified Purchase
As I’m sure you can see from the reviews, this is a great buy. I keep buying more and more! I use some as light switches, but that’s just the beginning.
The things you can program these buttons to do can be very complex. I have mine running complex lighting automations, with functions that change throughout the day in a perfectly intuitive way. I have them hidden throughout the house to serve various functions. I’ve got one on my fan, and not only can it turn the fan on and off, it can also adjust it’s speed, and it can automatically switch between two set points where I want the fan pointed.
I’ve even got one set up as an emergency button for my grandma. If she presses it, the hub plays an alarm, and everyone in the family gets a Critical Alert from the Aqara iOS app, so even if we have silent mode or do not disturb on, we’ll know there’s an emergency. It even works on Apple Watch, iPad, and Mac! One of these buttons could genuinely save a life.
And I can feel safe relying on them, because I have a reliable internet connection both at home and on the go. The Aqara buttons are extremely responsive. Quick, reliable, well made, cheap, highly customizable, and they work with everything you could ever hope for.
Especially once Thread versions of Aqara products arrive, I’m gonna be loyal to Aqara for a long time. I just couldn’t wait for these buttons to be Thread based to do it.07/25/2022Verified Purchase
