Hello, first of all I’m sorry if this post break the community rule.
I just want to know about the ‘things’ status.
I wonder, how do I know my sensor and other things is turned ON (active) and working properly.
I do some test, I remove the battery of my open/close sensor. I can’t get
information in the app that tell my sensor is not working or not
The app just tell the last status of my sensor. I think is not good not knowing the status of my sensor at my house. Is there any way to know it ?
For the things that can act as actuator is the same, in this case is my
SmartPower Outlet. I do have shortcut to control my SmartPower Outlet to act like light. In the shortcut menu I can turn it on, and when I click, it show “turning on” and when the device is not ON or connected
anymore, the status is still on “turning on status”.
With this, we can know the device is not working properly, which is good. But, when I turn the SmartPower Outlet Via “Things” menu on dashboard, it give ON condition if I click it. The status is false,
because it the actual condition the SmartPower outlet it not working.
We can’t tested the device or sensor is working not everyday. We need to know whether our device is working or not because of battery power failure, broken or maybe the sensor have been stolen.
For example, I place my motion sensor on the ceiling near the door, and
then the sensor is fall and broken, and make the battery disconnected. I will never know my motion sensor is not working anymore, until i see it.
This is not good for security reason. If I can’t make sure all my device and sensor working properly, it will make me worried about my house when I’m away.
