@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11I am not sure I see proper ikea stuff (in Canada) for zigbee15:16:31
@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulC deepreef11: https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/tradfri-wireless-control-outlet-smart-30356169/ Not sure this includes the remote (it should), but all TRÅDFRI devices are Zigbee 15:18:36
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11Yes, that is the remote I did not find15:19:07
@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulCHmm any one of their light bulb remotes would do, but it's weird that they do not list them separately or as a kit with the outlet on their canada webstore15:22:45
@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulCOtherwise I use Tuya Zigbee plugs from Aliexpress, but I got disappointed with the remote controls from Aliexpress, so I mostly use Ikea remotes now.15:26:22
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11 So that remote with the light bulb should be able to work with the outlet above? 20:40:32

@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11I tried looking up on ikea.com but I fallback to the canadian store... I don't understand what is suppose to pair with the plug, its not explained. I've found out the remote I've just posted is not tradfri20:53:39
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11So I suppose it should work anyway, but since it says it is for light bulb, I'm wondering if it is locked to light bulb20:54:36
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11Are you sure zigbee will be able to operate outside of the range of the hub? The plug and the remote would be out of range of the hub21:38:22
@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulC deepreef11: yeah, that's the remote I've been using with my tuya plug: https://aliexpress.com/item/1005005734493134.html (this is a EU model). I think that if you use multiple IKEA devices, the pairing process is rather simple, but I've never used these devices much without a Home Assistant "coordinator" (where binding two devices is a rather complex operation involving "clusters").
I've paired IKEA lightbulbs to IKEA remotes in the past, the process was quite straightforward, but I don't remember exactly.

Sure! If you want to use them isolated, I suggest not to connect them to the rest of the network at all
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11I see21:42:05
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11In that case, rf may make more sens, but I haven't found one with a quality remote 21:42:37
@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulC (Please note though, that ZigBee devices that are not battery-powered are usually "routers", they extend the range of the network. This smart plug is a router too, for instance. As a result, ZigBee networks can cover a very large surface if routers are placed strategically) 21:43:43
@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulCWith RF devices, I think there are a few third party remotes that you can use. But you can also consider IR (infrared) remote plugs if it's in line of sight21:46:18
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11From my understanding, perhaps zigbee would be more reliable. While RF may have better reach, its only one way communication, so no confirmation it worked 21:55:22

@mayeul:mayeul.netMayeulCPossibly, though you'd still need some way to display this feedback. Just put a lightbulb on the same socket as the pump to have a status light visible from your garden :)09:45:41
@deepfreef11:matrix.orgdeepreef11Are there other suggestion for zigbee plug and remote?12:47:37

Sorry newbee question. USB Passthrough from Debian to a KVM box running HA on Alpine.

I have:

## Get Data 
lsusb # Get USB VID & PID
virshlist # Get VM Domain Name
#Create a Rules File
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-usb-kvm.rules

# Add this Rule 99-usb-kvm.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0x10c4", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0xea60", RUN+="/bin/virsh attach-device hass hostdev mode='subsystem' type='usb' source={vendor_id=0x10c4,product_id=0xea60}"

# Grant Permissions
sudo chmod +x /etc/udev/rules.d/99-usb-kvm.rules

#Reload Rules File  
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger

HA Ziggbee will not start, gives a 502. Not sure what to do next. Any tips?
