We have 5-6 of these things, and recently 3 have die on me making the wife and kids think ST was down when it wasn’t.
It doesn’t appear the device type has battery reporting on the stock one I am using. Did some searching in the forums and don’t see something like this.
I’d like to set up a Rule Machine rule to alert me when they get low so I can charge them… any ideas? Thanks!
Most remotes don’t report in regularly. They only send out data on button presses. I’m about 98% sure that there is no way to read the battery from these devices.

[/quote]Based on the technical specs and some other forums, the device doesn’t support battery reporting so there’s no way to set it up in Rule Machine because the functionality can’t be added to the device handler.
That was my guess, thanks for weighing in.
