Any update on Xiaomi ZigBee sensors support? I'd really love to have couple of their temp. sensors at my home. It costs almost nothing compared to similarly capable z-wave devices.

I've had luck recently with the SmartThings F-OUT-US-2 smart outlet/plug, their newest (V4?) of these smart plugs.  It was on sale last week so I picked up a few.  I added it as an "Appliance Module - Centralite Appliance Module 4257050-RZHAC" under "Dimmers and Lights".  Vera tried to add it as a smoke sensor, so I had to change the device_type to BinaryLight:1, the device_file to D_BinaryLight1.xml, the device_json to D_BinaryLight1.json, the category_num to 3, and the subcategory_num to 1.  They all work fine* now and even report the watts being used, which Samsung doesn't advertise as a feature.

*The only issue I'm having is that sometimes when the F-OUT-US-2 is on and another zigbee device is turned on or off, Vera reports that the F-OUT-US-2 turned off.  The F-OUT-US-2 never ACTUALLY turns off, Vera just thinks it did for a few seconds and then corrects itself a few seconds later.  The only issue this poses is that I had a scene in which when one device turns off (Christmas tree), two more turn off.  Vera's false reporting of the F-OUT-US-2 being turned off triggers the other two to actually turn off.  So I had to alter that scene.  But for basic control of a device on and off, and even reporting wattage, this thing is solid.

If anyone has any ideas on how to troubleshoot the one little issue, let me know.  I'm wondering if there's a setting somewhere to alter the polling or something so that it doesn't do these false off reports anymore.

I follow the advice of ListerD and paired a Visonic Window/Door Sensor (model MCT-340E).  Zigbee HA1.2 compliant. At the beginning it displayed as a Smoke Sensor, but a few minutes later it change to a Window/Door Sensor.  The only issue I have is that is not displaying the battery and its charge. Any suggestions?

Vera Support -- I've added one of these to my UI7 V+, and am having the same issue. It sees the device, but no battery status, no open/close status, just an "ARM' or "DISARM" choice.  help?

Configured as: urn:schemas-micasaverde-com:device:DoorSensor:1

Sorry, been off the boards for a while.  Mine show up perfectly with open/closed status.  I did not have them initially show up as a smoke sensor.  They showed up as a door/window sensor on the initial pairing.   If you're still having issues, you might remove the device and try it as another type of door/window sensor.  Mine also shows as configured as the same type of devices you listed:  DoorSensor:1

Also, I did create a modified json file just to switch the open/closed states, reversing the colors.  My locks show red when locked, so I wanted my sensors to do the same.  Red means closed or locked.  But the status of opened/closed was working prior to that change.

Sengled Element Classic A19 bulbs work with vera plus.  Just got two of them installed and worked like a champ.  Shows up as urn:schemas-upnp-org:device:DimmableLight:1  Using minimotes for scene control of on/off and dimming.

Replaced a couple of TCPLighting bulbs I've been limping along with that were more trouble than they were worth.

Are you connecting the A19's directly to Vera or using a hub with a plug-in?
