I am converting to a cellular modem. The first 2 days the smartthings hub consumed > 1 gig of data. The hub is the only device connected to the cell modem. There aren’t any wifi connections on the modem (doesn’t have that capability) I had only 6 devices on my smartthings network. 2 door sensors, 1 pir sensor, 1 water sensor, a smoke detector, and one schlage lock. My Hub is a version2 with the latest firmware.
Per the event list the lock was sending data every minute. The water sensor and door sensors were repeatably sending battery and temp and door status, timing sometimes as < 1 minute between them. It was constant. The only device that did not trigger numerous events was my smoke detector, it was normal at about 1 per hour.
This property is a summer house, only occupied for 3 months per year.
I have at this point removed all devices, added them one at a time. I added an Rboys device handler and app for the Schlage Lock and that has settled down . I added the water sensor ( Smarthings “smartsense” sensor ) and my data rate went up with the pings, temp and battery and DRY reports.
I need a PIR, Door, and Water sensor that doesn’t flood the cell modem with data that I Only want ON EVENT occurring or querying with my app. and I really don’t need A temperature report on 5 different places in my <1000 sq ft condo. Or a manner and information to program the parameters of the devices.
BTW I tried the ZWave Tweaker device manager and that didn’t work, and I am sniffing the Z-wave with the TI usb sniffer.
Any assistance would be appreciated
