Arrival sensor battery life... Very erratic readings

(Patrick Eustace) #1

My ST arrival sensor on my wife’s keyset displays very erratic battery reading levels. For example over the course of today alone it has gone from 50% in the middle of last night to 12% earlier today.

I put a new battery in in a couple of weeks ago so the battery should be good.

Anyone else seeing this? Is there a known problem with these arrival sensors? My sensor is showing 37% even though I also changed battery at the same time

Yes. I have two of them. One I purchased and the other SmartThings sent me as a replacement. Both have the same battery issue . It annoying and they should refund our money.

Is there an alternative unit from another manufacturer which can be used instead?
