    Here's a short video guide showing the automatic Home Assistant Discovery process for BK7231 (T and N), BL602, W800/W801, W600/W601 and XR809 devices in OpenBeken firmware. Automatic Discovery allows you to easily pair your device with Home Assistant, without having to write any YAML code. Everything is done with one button click and your device just shows up in Home Assistant, alongside with all it's relays, LED controls (if available) and sensors (for example, DHT temperature/humidity sensor or BL0942 power metering sensor.

    Tutorial assumes that you have already OpenBeken installed. If not, please watch our "how to change firmware" videos:

    Today OpenBeken Home Assistant Discovery system has been improved. Starting from today, the advanced channel types will get discovered by HA as well. This will help with some of TuyaMCU devices (but not all of them).

    Starting from today, if you do in autoexec.bat:
    setChannelType 1 Toggle
    setChannelType 2 Toggle
    setChannelType 3 Toggle
    setChannelType 4 Toggle

    it will get correctly Discovered.

    Same goes for TuyaMCU config like:
    setChannelType 1 Humidity
    setChannelType 2 Temperature_div10

    this will also be seen by HA.

    NOTE: the "_div10" suffix is needed for TuyaMCU, because TuyaMCU encodes temperature like 25.5°C as 255... it's sent as integer.

    Remember that you can set channel labels:
    setChannelLabel 1 Test123

    and they will get to HA as well:
