Obsolete thread. See this one instead :
The “Fibaro Z-Wave Door/Window Sensor” hardware, available in US 908.4MHz version, supports 2 additional capabilities in addition to magnetic open/close :
- temperature sensor (using an optional DS18B20)
- wired switch/button
At this time, the SmartThings Hub built-in driver supports ONLY the magnetic open/close capability.
In the compatibility list it is noted as : “Only open/close is functional. Battery and other alerts supported by the device coming”.
I need the temperature sensing capability (the Fibaro is much smaller than the Everspring ST814).
My questions are :
a) should I wait for the full support (“coming” could mean next month… or next year… or never)
b) should I attempt to develop myself an extended version of the driver.
I can probably do (b), assuming the SmartThings framework is compatible, but I would honestly prefer to have it done by SmartThings and spend instead my time on developing the application I do need.
Any recommendations / suggestions ?
