Do you see the red lights flashing on the dimmer?

Yes. Today I tried another CC2531, never used.

Error is different now, but at least there is something.

The sensor inside HA was created, but it's not alive. It stays in "unknown" state.

I noticed that in the end, after the final restart, the rotation is now alive. A bit jerky but definitely alive.
What was my issue? Why weren't I able to sync it with the first CC2531 stick?

It could be that it connected to a node where it was previously connected to (e.g. a TRADFRI bulb).

Impossible, it was my first IKEA device in my home.
The bulb was still in the bag when I paired the dimmer.
Maybe it was pre-paired in fabric with the bulb? I bought it in a kit (1000lm dimmerable bulb + dimmer).

the dimmer is a mess. I have managed to pair it with CC2531 worked for a while.
not smooth at all and very sensitive to touch... now does not pair anymore but not really crying after.

@nerdosity AFAIK if you buy a bulb + dimmer in one package, they are already paired in the factory by IKEA. So that could be a reason why it's not pairing.

Couldnt agree more, that dimmer is s**t. I was able to pair it and then watch my sensors and routers lose connection step by step - removed the dimmer, everything recovers within minutes. Did repeat that for 3 times, then took the battery out - will return it to IKEA.

Why that happened, I have no clue. Ideas welcome.

ok just to correct myself... I tried to pair it today and worked like a charm... the pairing... the dimmer itself still crap.

SInce this is one of the top results in Google regarding pairing the subject I'll leave here my experience. ( @Koenkk maybe it's worthwhile to add a note into the "pairing" section of the manual. I might be willing to contribute)
I had pretty much the same experience. Including the

The sensor inside HA was created, but it's not alive. It stays in "unknown" state.

However as soon as I have re-started the zigbee2mqtt plugin it just started to work... (I'm using hass.io on VirtualBox).
So, if you are reading these lines trying to make this dimmer work - try to use that good old rule. Restart :)

After a half-day of successful operation this dimmer just stopped working. Neither re-pairing nor zigbee2mqtt restart helped. I give up. This dimmer is indeed a piece of crap.
