New to Smarthings - just recently purchased it and yesterday added the ecolink tilt sensor - setup was fine, and mounted in garage. Basic reason for it is to know if i left the door open by mistake. I have some issue with hooking up camera in garage with power outlet - so battery based sensor was best option.
This is the issue i have. Most often it is sending the right signal - in terms of Open/Close. But noticed few times - the signal is not coming back when the door is closed (unit is in upright position). So, my app status still says “Open” - when in fact the door is closed - kind of beats the whole point of using it.
Noticed that issue is mostly when i close the door (seems to detect Open almost all the time correctly). Any thoughts on what could be wrong?
Another related question - the ST multi sensor - does it work the same way? What i was ideally looking for - is even if a signal/event is missed - if i could refresh the device status, and i get it’s current orientation - then i’m good.
