I’ve recently setup my SmartThings hub because I wanted to monitor some door/window sensors and smoke/CO alarms remotely. So far things are working reasonably well but I have one question about the SmartSense multi sensor.
I’m using the multi sensor on a window to detect both open/close as well as vibrations. I have no real use for its temperature sensor (for now at least). Since the sensor seems to be reporting temperature much more frequently than anything else, I’m sure that will affect its battery life unnecessarily.
Does anyone know how I can disable the temperature function, or at least stop the sensor from reporting temperature?
I found a post on this topic that’s about 18 months old, but I’m unable to alter the device type in the way that @jadorelavie describes. I just don’t see a “smartsense multi (configurable)” in the list of device types when I login to the SmartThings web interface.
Does that device type no longer exist? Are there any other methods of doing this? Thanks!
