FYI: Zipato Smart Water Leakage Sensor DH


(Dani) #1

In order to use this ZigBee sensor with SmartThings, use the Device Handler (DH) for Nortek Water Leak Senzor.


#2

Isn’t the Nortek water leak sensor the same as their gocontrol FZ001? That’s a Z wave device, not a zigbee device,

But then, Zipato does have a Z wave leak detector. So perhaps that’s where the confusion lies?

It’s the Z wave Zipato sensor, then the Nortek DTH should be fine. :sunglasses:

If it’s some new zigbee sensor from Zipato, the Nortek DTH won’t work. :umbrella:

I don’t know. I was searching for a DH that works and that works with this ZigBee one.


#4

Ok, that helps. Zipato does indeed make two versions: a zwave version with -z at the end of the model number, and a zigbee version with –m at the end of the model number. They both have the same name, which is annoying. :rage:

That said, I’d be really surprised if a zwave DTH would work with a zigbee device. But you tried it and it’s working?

I would also look at the device itself, not just the box, just in case they made a mistake and put the zwave version in the zigbee box. Apparently they use the same case so they look just alike.

I don’t know how to check the Nortek DH if is a Z-Wave DH, because is not at templates. But for sure is working with this ZigBee sensor. I attached the proofs bellow.


#6

As long as it’s working, that’s good. Also good to know there are two different protocols available for this device. :sunglasses:

Do you know how to check the DH code for Nortek? I don’t see it at DH templates…Maybe it is a ZigBee DH. That’s why is working.
